Hurricane Irma Recovery: Beware Of Unlicensed Contractors

Unfortunately, after a disaster like Hurricane Irma, unscrupulous contractors come out of the woodwork to offer their services to help homeowners repair their homes. In many cases, these unscrupulous contractors are unlicensed, untrained and unregulated. They may perform shoddy work, charge more than they should and the homeowner is left — in some cases — worse off than they were before these “contractors” showed up.

The Better Business Bureau of West Florida explains that “Natural disasters can bring out the best in people and they can bring out the worst. In the aftermath of a crisis scams and unlicensed contractors are out to take advantage of those who have been victimized.” Representatives from the BBB say, “It is common for out-of-town storm chasers to solicit business after storms,” said Karen Nalven, BBB President. “Disaster victims should never feel pressured to make a decision by an unknown contractor.  Consumers should Start With Trust and look for the BBB Accredited Business Seal; these companies are screened, monitored, licensed and trusted.  Storm chasers may not have proper licensure for your area and may offer quick fixes or make big promises to which they won’t deliver.” Read More »

Symbiont Service Team Volunteers During Hurricane Irma Clean-up

Before, during and after #HurricaneIrma, Sandy King, president of Symbiont Service Corp said her employees pulled together to prepare the business to weather the storm. “We had team members boarding up the windows at the store, securing equipment and doing everything necessary to assure everything was as safe as possible,” she said. “We also had a few team members who stayed at the store during the height of the hurricane because they felt safer there than at home.”

After the storm passed, Sandy and her team jumped into action to get the business back up and running, “We knew we were going to have customers who would need to have their pool heaters and their home air conditioning units inspected before they were able to safely turn them back on and we wanted to be ready when our customers needed us.”
