Are You Ready for Storm Damage?

10/12/2022 (Permalink)

Lightening Storms can catch homeowners by surprise.

As anyone here knows, the weather in Southern & Central Jefferson County brings intense rain, wind, and ice storms. With weather that can switch quickly, it’s essential to ensure your home is storm-ready, prepared to handle and withstand unpredictable conditions.

It’s always a good idea to conduct a home and ground inspection before weather conditions worsen. Things like leaky roofs or windows can be very problematic in the midst of heavy rainfall and strong winds, so checking them and ensuring they are all fitted correctly is a critical step.

Checking for loose shutters and trimming back any trees or shrubbery that may be surrounding your home is another good way to get it storm-ready. Shutters, tree limbs, and other loose debris can get picked up by the wind and thrown in any direction, including toward your house. Also, inspect any drainage areas near or around your home, clearing them of debris-creating blockage. This will help reduce the chances of flooding your property during a storm.

Another thing to consider when preparing your home for a storm is what kind of system to have that will allow you to communicate with your loved ones and receive weather updates. In some cases, storms can become strong enough to put your cell phone’s service signal at risk, so it’s good to be prepared and have an alternative form of communication in place.

And as always, SERVPRO of Southern and Central Jefferson County is here to help in the event of storm damage. We’re available 24/7 and ready when you need us. Give us a call at (636) 467-5444.
