When disaster strikes, quick relief that provides resources that matter is of paramount importance. While it must be ensured that supplies arrive safely and on time, one of the basic needs that takes time to reconstruct is emergency storage buildings and facilities.
Rebuilding after a natural calamity takes urgency, focus, energy, and resources. But while rehabilitation happens, urgent temporary relief is a dire need for those who have been affected by large-scale catastrophes like floods, earthquakes, tornados, or hurricanes. To meet such time-bound necessities, Mobile Modular Portable Storage offers various kinds of disaster relief containers and structures with prompt delivery.
Our range of shipping containers can be used as portable emergency containers, temporary emergency structures, emergency food storage containers (for nonperishables only), and storm protection structures among others.
MOBILE MODULAR PORTABLE STORAGE CUSTOMERS AFFECTED BY HURRICANES IRMA AND HARVEY
Mobile Modular Portable Storage is ready to assist our customers affected by Hurricane Harvey. Our prime concern is your safety. There are a few things you should know about your leased ground-level office or portable storage container from Mobile Modular Portable Storage. We ask that you take some time to be sure that you have checked the following areas of potential concern.
- Your Safety is First. Always be careful when entering or inspecting units. If there is serious structural damage, do not enter the unit. Watch out for debris and downed power lines. Avoid walking through flood waters to inspect damage as they may be fast moving or electrically charged. Use flashlights in the dark.
- Documentation is Helpful. If you have identified any sort of concern, document the damage thoroughly. Inventory damaged property and prepare a list. If you have any form of damage to the leased unit or container, contact your insurance company to begin the claims process.
- Verify Safe Electrical & Gas Connection. Verify that the electrical connection is intact and functioning. Inspect for any signs of damage. If the power has not yet been restored to the area, power off the panel box to eliminate risk at the time of power restoration. At any sign of threat, contact 911. If the unit is connected to a gas line, have an electrician check the system before turning power on again.
- Flipped or Tossed? If the unit has flipped over or lost its footing, do not attempt to right it. Do not allow anyone to move in or about the unit. If possible, cordon off the area with caution tape or rope with red flags. Contact us immediately.
Flood Damaged? Flood damage creates an environment conducive to mold and mildew. Notify us if the unit has been under water for any period of time or has sustained water intrusion due to window or roof damage.
- Turn off main power if the wiring is wet or moldy or has been exposed to flooring. Have an electrician check the system before turning power on again.
- Open the unit to fresh air when humidity outside is lower than inside.
- Turn on fans and dehumidifiers in the unit.
- Remove all wet items from the unit (carpet, furniture, etc.). Be sure to wear safety gloves and if mold is evident wear a protective mask.
- Contact our service department to coordinate an inspection.
When it comes to flooring, mold and mildew concerns, we want to be sure you are aware that these issues may come to light over the coming days and weeks. Do not contact a mold remediation company for your leased unit, call us first so that we can coordinate efforts.
