This involves cleaning every square inch of your industrial or commercial space.

What Damages Can Natural Disasters Cause?
A severe and unexpected weather-related incident is referred to as a natural disaster. They frequently hit without notice, causing casualties as well as damage to property. Utility services may be challenging to restore, and containment procedures may fail during the incident. Hazardous substances can harm the environment if they are discharged.
The majority of natural catastrophes that occur in the southeast and south-central regions of the United States, where CG Environmental Cleaning Guys works, take the shape of hurricanes, windstorms, floods, and tornadoes. Because damage may be so severe, it’s essential to establish a working connection with a company that is familiar with your industry and can offer quick disaster recovery services.
We work primarily with:
Hurricanes can create significant, extensive damage and are dangerous. Storm surges, rip currents, and hazardous floods frequently add to the initial destruction brought on by strong winds and heavy rain. Wind may rip away structures, machinery can be knocked over, and floods might overwhelm containment measures.
Flooding may be caused by a storm surge, hurricane damage, weakened levees, or overflowing streams. Equipment that is vulnerable should be relocated to higher elevations, and there should be preparations made to safely pump water out of buildings.
What should I do after a hurricane passes?
The best and most advised course of action during a storm is to seek shelter. A room in your home with no or few windows would be the best location.
People who are confined indoors for days due to a hurricane may become anxious and start to walk around or attempt to leave the area as soon as the storm appears to be subsiding or is over.
Therefore, it is wise to refrain from doing anything risky just after a storm. Wait until you hear an official “all clear” announcement before leaving your home.
Avoid attempting to drive or explore the area to assess the damage.
Avoid interacting with any low-hanging wires or trees that are near power lines.
Keep a watch out for any potentially unstable buildings near your building, such as porches.
Who do I call to report damages?
The first actions to take are to contact your insurance provider and to request the help of experts. Skilled specialists will clean, sterilize, and deodorize the majority of materials that would seem to be irrecoverable, whether cleaned on-site or packaged and cleaned later in a controlled setting.
How long does cleanup take?
Cleaning up after structural damage to a home can take some time; it is preferable to hire specialists to handle this.
Typically, a hurricane cleanup takes 24 to 48 hours to complete.
When will I be able to get back into my home/business?
This will depend on the type of damage. If you have water damage, it’s important to run dehumidifiers to avoid mold and mildew development. We will help you assess the damage on our initial arrival, giving you a timeframe to allow you to get back to your life.
When are you available for cleanup?
It’s crucial to have a firm you can trust for prompt, efficient home or business repair after a natural disaster. We are here for you around-the-clock, seven days a week, 365 days a year, prepared for your disaster so you may pick up the pieces and resume your usual life.
What should I do to avoid personal harm?
It might be challenging to practice good hygiene during cleanup efforts after a significant flood. Washing your hands with soap and running water is crucial to preventing waterborne illness, especially before breaks for lunch and at the conclusion of the workday. Unless expressly stated as safe by local or state authorities, workers should presume that any water in flooded or nearby regions is not safe. Use bottled water, water that has been boiled for at least 10 minutes, or water that has been chemically disinfected if there is no clean water supply available for washing.
