Weather Related Damage
Weather isn’t always predictable. Summer months are filled with threats of heavy rain, tornados, and hurricanes. Natural disasters have the ability to wreak severe havoc on your home. With that in mind every year, it would probably be a good idea to be prepared for this disastrous weather.
Thunderstorms are a pretty common occurrence in most of the country. They come roaring in with loud bursts of thunder, substantial rainfall, forceful winds, and lighting. You may not think this sounds too bad, but there are a lot of issues that can come from thunderstorms. For instance, high winds can easily knock the power out. If that’s the case, make sure you have a flashlight, batteries, food, water, and maybe a backup generator. Lightning has the potential to start fires and/or electrical surges. To avoid surging in your home, make sure to unplug appliances and other electronics. Lightning also has the ability to knock trees down, although there’s not much you can do about it, you CAN make sure you have phone numbers handy. Helpful numbers include fire department, police department, hospitals, 911, and maybe even your neighbors.
These storms aren’t bad just for electrical reasons. Flooding can also take a major role in the situation. Flooding causes serious water damage which can ruin your floors, carpeting, furniture, and any other personal belongings that may be in the way. Water proofing is a great way to prevent water from seeping into your home. You can also prevent water damage by making sure gutters are cleaned with downspouts aiming away from the home. This prevents over flow and will help keep the water away.
It doesn’t matter if you are faced with a tiny thunderstorm or a huge hurricane, it never hurts to be prepared. Always remember, preparation is key in any situation.
