01 Oct How To Prepare Your Home For A Hurricane
Preparing Your Home:
•Hurricane winds can cause trees and branches to fall, so before hurricane season trim or remove damaged trees and limbs to keep you and your property safe.
•Secure loose rain gutters and downspouts and clear any clogged areas or debris to prevent water damage to your property.
•Reduce property damage by securing windows and doors, including the garage doors.
•Purchase a portable generator or install a generator for use during power outages. Remember to keep generators and other alternate power/heat sources outside, at least 20 feet away from windows and doors and protected from moisture; and NEVER try to power the house wiring by plugging a generator into a wall outlet.
Standard homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flooding. It’s important to have protection from the floods associated with hurricanes, tropical storms, heavy rains and other conditions that impact us, call SAVA to make sure you are covered!
