What To Do Before And After A Summer Storm Hits
We all know just how disruptive damage from a storm can be, both for ourselves and our property. This goes for home owners and business owners alike. From minor inconveniences to major property damage, the summer storm season can bring plenty of issues our way.
But, as they always say, the best defense is a good offense. And you surely can go on the offense by preparing yourself and your property for the worst that a summer storm can offer. It may not prevent anything from happening, but it will definitely guard you, your family, and your home against the most severe damage.
Get supplies: This includes food in case you are unable to go out. This also includes supplies like extra batteries, flashlights, and gas for your generator if you need to.
Stay safe: When the storm happens, stay away from windows, as they could break under the right conditions. Stay inside if any lightning occurs as well.
Look for damage: Inspect any areas of your home or business that may have sustained any damage. Check your roof for leaks or loose shingles. Check windows for any cracks that may have developed. Also, check your basement or lowest level for any water damage.
