How to Weather the Storm

ImageWith the recent heavy and frequent rains hitting the Delaware area, it’s important to ensure you take proper precautions. Prevention is always easier than restoration!

The key to preventing severe storm damage is to:

  • Keep Trees Trimmed – Trim tree branches down regularly to ensure they do not become overgrown and susceptible to falling. This is especially important for trees that are near your home or car. Tree damage is one of the most expensive home maintenance issues.
  • Quickly Manage Leaks – It’s important to take care of leaks as soon as possible to prevent bigger problems in the future. It is often easy to forget about small leaks but these small leaks can become a major issue during the time of a storm. All leaks should be properly repaired immediately.
  • House Movable Items in Storage Facilities – It’s important to place as many items as possible inside of a sheltered facility. Items left outdoors during storms can be easily swept up and thrown at doors, windows and vehicles.
  • Protect Your Vehicle – Vehicles are often parked outdoors with no shelter, which leaves them vulnerable to damage during a storm. If possible, it’s best to put vehicles under awnings or inside of garages.
