MaintenX Disaster Recovery Teams Assist Businesses After Hurricane Laura

Hurricanes present a variety of hazards to commercial facilities, and MaintenX was ready to provide their full spectrum of disaster recovery services to the area impacted by recent hurricanes Marco and Laura.

TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season is in full swing, as Texans and Louisianans can attest. But while hurricanes Laura and Marco did not cause as much damage as had been initially feared, many communities, most prominently Lake Charles, Louisiana, still required major disaster assistance. The MaintenX team was ready and provided their full spectrum of disaster recovery services to the affected area.

“Anyone on the Gulf Coast knows to respect hurricanes and the damage they cause,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX VP of Business Development. “I’m so proud of our team’s response, springing into action to help Louisianans and their facilities get back on their feet after Hurricane Laura.”

Hurricanes present a variety of hazards to commercial facilities. Strong winds can damage siding, roofing, and other external structures while also turning unsecured objects into missiles that pierce walls and windows. Rain and storm surge can cause water infiltration and flooding, which present the secondary problems of fungal and bacterial growth, drywall and carpeting damage, and structural rot.

After such storms pass, MaintenX moves in to make sure commercial facilities return to safety and functionality as soon as possible. MaintenX’s emergency generators power vital equipment, while their teams clear debris, repair roofs, mitigate water damage, and perform post-repair inspections to give facility managers peace of mind and allow them to resume normal operation.

MaintenX also helps facility managers stay in business as they recover from storm damage. Clients have relied on MaintenX to provide fuel services, both to keep generators running, and to provide power to vehicles that help employees get to work and deliver their product to customers.

“While the current storms may have passed, there are still 12 weeks left of hurricane season. It’s not too late to start thinking about your storm plan or to meet with a maintenance professional to identify your business’s unique strengths and areas of concern,” said Schaphorst.

Headquartered in Tampa, Florida, MaintenX is no stranger to hurricane recovery, having performed high-quality facility maintenance for more than 40 years. For more information about MaintenX and the extent of disaster response services available, please visit
