While facility managers are facing a number of pressures from COVID-19, MaintenX shares why it’s important to keep planning ahead for typical seasonal risks, like hurricanes.

Scheduling preventative maintenance services early ensures roof inspections, debris clearing, plumbing repairs and other recommended hurricane preparations can be completed with time to spare before June arrives.

So far, 2020 has not been a year for the faint of heart. Facility managers around the world have had to manage store closures, modified hours, and new social distancing protocols due to the novel coronavirus. While it’s important to focus on employee and customer well-being during these trying times, it’s also important to not lose sight of potential issues to come. For facility managers on the East and Gulf Coasts of the United States, that means preparing for the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season, which is only six weeks away.

Already, Colorado State University is predicting a more-active-than-usual year. The season, which runs from June 1 through November 30, is predicted to result in 16 named storms and eight hurricanes, four of which will qualify as “major hurricanes.”

“Don’t wait to start planning for hurricane season,” said Bill Schaphorst, VP of Business Development at MaintenX. “It doesn’t take a major storm to create major damage. Preparations done now go a long way to help ensure facilities are ready to weather any storm.”

MaintenX is considered an essential business during the COVID-19 outbreak, so their Disaster Recovery and Rapid Response Team is ready to help customers prepare their facilities for the extreme weather that may come. Scheduling preventative maintenance services early ensures roof inspections, debris clearing, plumbing repairs and other recommended hurricane preparations can be completed with time to spare before June arrives.

Working with maintenance professionals to craft a formal hurricane plan can help ensure facility managers have supplies and communication channels ready. Especially while our supply systems and essential store workers are being taxed due to the pandemic, allowing additional time for preparation is wise. Even in normal times, a last-minute rush for hurricane materials and facility vendors can cause facility managers to find themselves empty handed.
