Storm Preparation Recommendations

Storms happen every year in Henderson, CO, and cause water damage. Being prepared could lower the impact that a storm could have on your home. To make sure you are ready, take some time to look at these storm preparation recommendations.
1. Create a Barricade
To help prevent too much flood water from getting into your home, create a barrier by placing sandbags around your place. It can take an hour or more to create this type of blockade, so make sure to take into account how much time you will need to get this in place.
2. Move Items
Any items that can be easily damaged or have a high value should be moved to a location that would be safe in case of a flooded building. This includes items such as furniture, water heaters, televisions, stoves, and furnaces as well as important documents that might be hard to replace.
3. Listen to the News
Keep a radio on hand or use the internet to listen to the weather forecast. Your local weather station and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will provide important updates, including any announcements for any mandatory evacuations in your area.
4. Turn off Electronics
For the safety of you and your family, unplug any electronic devices or appliances. If flood water gets into your home, you could find yourself in a dangerous situation if electronics are still plugged in.
5. Prepare for Damage
As a part of storm preparation, you should be prepared for the possibility of water damage to your home. Having a trusted storm damage cleanup company in your corner can make the restoration process move faster than if you did not have a professional helping you.
A storm can create flooding and cause damage to your home. Get ready for a storm in your area by making a barricade around your home, moving costly items to a safe location, listening to the news to hear important announcements, unplugging electronics, and hiring a storm restoration company to get flood water out of the home.
