As Floridians, we know that a big variety of damage can come from our infamous hurricanes. Hurricanes have extremely strong winds that can seriously damage property, and the storm’s accompanying heavy rains and storm surges can result in significant flooding. When the power of a hurricane bears down on houses and buildings, these storms can truly destroy our homes. Consequently, it’s important to know how to best prepare your property by securing it before the worst of the storm hits.
Prepare your property ahead of time with these tips:
- Cut weak branches and trees surrounding your home
- Install window and glass door shutters, roof clips, and garage door braces
- Check for leaks: Seal doors, windows, and areas where cables and pipes enter
- Clean gutters to prevent potential roof damage and flooding inside your home
- Make sure exterior doors are hurricane-proof
- Replace gravel or rock landscaping with a light fire-resistant material to reduce damage
- Clear clutter around your home
