How Do I Prepare My Attica Location For A Storm?

We’re heading into winter storm season, and as a savvy Attica home or business owner, you know it’s best to be prepared ahead of time. Power losses, debris, and standing water can create serious challenges during stormy weather.

Let’s discuss some ways you can be ready for bad weather!

What Are Some Important Safety Measures I Can Take For My Attica Home Or Business?

Safety is the most critical consideration of all. Whether you’re thinking of your loved ones or your workforce, you can take steps to ensure no one gets hurt by damages from a winter storm.

  • After a storm comes through, there may be much debris that will need to be cleaned up. If you are using machinery for the cleanup, make sure never to operate machinery on your own. Wear protective eye gear and headgear while operating machines (such as chainsaws and chippers, for example). Take note of anyone in the vicinity and be aware of your surroundings while using such machinery and tools. Schedule professional assistance if you are uncertain about clearing storm damage.
  • If you have experienced flooding and standing water at your Attica property, keep people clear of this area. Electricity in that part of the home should be shut off safely, but never walk through standing water when electricity is engaged. Removing standing water as soon as possible is vital to avoid contamination and mold. Professional cleanup companies can be onsite right away to handle damage after storms. 
  • If you have tree damage to your home or property, always ensure no power lines are down nearby before you start any cleanup. If there are, wait until utility crews can remove them before beginning your cleanup.
  • You should have the overall structure of your home professionally assessed if you have experienced storm damage. These professionals will check power sources, whether the home is leaning, exposed wiring, and other unsafe conditions. 
  • If your property has sustained substantial damage, leave things as they are before your insurance company inspects if possible. Your policy may state that professional repairs must be done and may not cover anything you do yourself. If you’re not sure what you can or cannot do, employ a professional who can do an inspection and give you an estimate for any repairs.
