When properly used, sandbags are an effective way to protect your property from heavy rain and floodwater.
TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) May 14, 2018
Scientists are predicting above-average activity for the 2018 Hurricane Season. Business owners should begin to gather their storm preparedness supplies now, including flood prevention materials. MaintenX International knows the importance of preparation to weathering a major storm. They have invested over $1 million in emergency response assets to ensure their customers are prepared for any weather, whether it’s a small storm or major hurricane.
“Sandbags are a cost-effective way for facility managers to protect their facilities from suffering property damages when the waters rise,” explained Bill Schaphorst, Vice President of Business Development for MaintenX. “When properly used, sandbags are an effective way to protect your property from heavy rain and floodwater.”
Due to their compact size and relatively low weight, sandbags are easy to use. However, filling, transporting, stacking and securing sandbags is time consuming work. MaintenX’s sandbagging equipment can fill 1600 bags an hour, taking the stress off facility managers to create enough sandbags for protection.
“We’ve heavily invested in emergency preparation and response equipment because we want to be a one-stop provider for all our customers. We can prepare and install sandbags before a storm and will be there to remove them when the storm has passed” said Schaphorst.
Depending on the amount of space protected by sandbags, facility managers may need MaintenX professionals to install and remove a large number of sandbags. On average, 800 standard-sized sandbags are needed to create a 100 feet long barrier that is 1 foot high. Additionally, facility managers may not have the space or desire to store enough bags to protect their property at any given time. That’s when MaintenX full-service emergency response capabilities are critical.
