Clean Up... Before Heavy Storms Come

Pro Star Rentals has always been concerned about safety first and foremost when it comes to taking on any project. We also try to make sure that in everything we do that safety is put first. Here in Texas, we are known for hurricanes and heavy storms to come each year. As we have already been able to see, this year is no exception. When you think about a storm you know that there can be a lot of wreckage from fallen trees or broken branches. This means that there is going to have to be some cleaning up done.

Wouldn’t it be better though if you “cleaned up” before the storm ever came through? What we mean by this is that a lot of damage can be prevented by making sure that your trees are in the shape that they should be. If you see that there are branches coming over and threatening the house, then you should trim or cut them off before they cause damage to your home. This is the same when it comes to trees leaning in a direction that could pose a problem. If it happens to be leaning toward the home, then it won’t take very much to come down on your home.

When it comes to this project though, you will need a chainsaw and a log splitter. It may cost you upfront to rent the needed equipment, but it will be a lot less money and time then if a tree were to come down on your home. If this happens then the insurance company is involved and who knows how long it will take to get your home repaired. By being proactive you can save yourself a lot of time and money, but it could also help to save a life. What you must remember is that when it comes to using these tools, they can be hazardous if not handled properly.

It is never advised to start hacking away at a tree. The first step is to always read the instructions and how to operate the equipment safely. Then before ever attacking the tree, figure out a plan of action that allows you to know what you’re going to keep and what you need to get rid of. This will make the process go a lot smoother.

If you need the proper tools to make this project happen before the worst of the storms come, then just give us a call today. Pro Star Rentals will be happy to help you. We will make sure to go through all the needed information to work it safely and properly.
