Spring Cleaning for Hurricane Season

4/18/2020 (Permalink)

Spring is the perfect time to get your home cleaned and organized. For residents in West Palm Beach this also includes preparation for hurricane season as well. Here are a few tips to help get your home ready:  

Manicure Your Lawn

Broken or damaged branches make for the perfect debris during a storm that has heavy winds. Prune any shrubbery and trees around your home, trimming any branches that can easily break during the next storm.

Check Your Roof

Hurricanes can be especially damaging to a home’s roof. To avoid the use of a tarp, inspect your roof for any missing tiles, cracks, or holes. Even small damage can be exacerbated during a storm; you will thank yourself for being proactive and repairing your roof before the summer season.

Organize Storage Areas

If you have a garage or storage shed, organizing these areas will make storing any outside patio furniture much easier. While making a checklist of all items that will need to be stored, inspect, repair and clean each item as needed. This will decrease the hassle of storing dirty or broken items that will need to be attended to after the storm.

Check Your Vents and Rain Gutters

Leaves, sticks, and other matter can make its way into your rain gutters, creating blockages for heavy rains. Clogs can lead to an overflow of rain, flooding the perimeter around your home. Remove any debris that may be building up in your gutter, while looking for any breaks or potential leaks. Check your vents for damage, missing screens, or any other issues as well.

Preparing for hurricane season before it hits will help in mitigating damage and hopefully keep your home from sustaining damage from heavy storms.
