No matter how unpredictable the weather is, you can always take measures to ensure that your home remains protected and intact especially throughout hurricane season. Apart from securing your retractable awnings and any other outdoor decor you may have, here are more things you can undertake to maintain safe at all times.
Keep Property Surroundings Clear
Within 36 hours of a hurricane arriving, start putting away any furniture or objects found within your property’s perimeter. Check for loose tree limbs and call your utility companies if you notice anything obstructing phone or power lines. You want to minimize the possibility of your own belongings flying into your home and damaging it during particularly strong winds.
Install Hurricane Screens
To protect your home from all types of debris, have removable or retractable hurricane screens installed. These units will work like an armor for your home, especially for the more vulnerable components like your windows and doors. Products like ArmorGuard™ screens that can take 200 mph winds are the best options.
Have Emergency Power and Communication Tools on Standby
Stay up-to-date about the ongoing weather situation by having a battery-operated radio or TV on hand. Invest in a generator that can support your home in case the power supply becomes compromised in your area. Charge all mobile phones and computers to full capacity too. Don’t forget to have a list of emergency contacts within easy reach.
