How Do I Prepare My Norwalk Property For A Storm?

11/17/2021 (Permalink)

Our SERVPRO team advises homeowners to prepare their Norwalk homes and property for the coming winter storm season. Extreme weather can lead to power outages and disruption of communications and can damage personal and business property and belongings. Flooding and large snow accumulations often cause travel to become extremely dangerous and even deadly. Hence, storm preparation is essential for many different severe situations during winter here in the Norwalk area. 

What Are Some Essential Storm Preparation Tips For My Norwalk Property?

  • Trim bushes and trees, remove dead trees, tall bushes, and all broken branches from around your home. These can cause injury and damage to the roof of your house if they fall during extreme weather involving wind, ice, or heavy snow accumulation. 
  • Clear clogged rain gutters. When the snow melts, it needs to be able to flow down your channels and away from your roofing. If there is dirt and debris left over from last spring, the water will pool and begin to back up, possibly damaging interior wall spaces in your home. Damp in your walls can lead to mold growth, causing a need for mold remediation in addition to the storm damage. 
  • Check the chimney and heating equipment. Have your chimney inspected and cleaned after winter and again before it comes around again. Your HVAC system also needs to be reviewed, and all ducts clear and ready for use. Change out all your filters in the system, as well. If you are using space heaters, they need to be in great shape.
