Make Sure Your Mayfield Heights Home is Storm Ready

4/23/2018 (Permalink)

Throughout this time of year, it's important for us as homeowners to keep a close eye on springtime storms. Keep an eye on the news and be prepared for anything, we are in Cleveland, Ohio anyways.

It’s a great idea to conduct an inspection of your Lyndhurst home and grounds before inclement weather hits. A leaky roof or windows can cause major problems during heavy rainfall and intense winds. Do all your exterior doors and windows fit correctly? When is the last time you took a good look at your roof?

Loose shutters, unstable large trees, and bushes can present a real problem in high winds. It’s best to trim back trees and bushes with large, heavy branches that are not in good condition so that windows and vehicles are not in danger of storm damage in windy conditions.

Many homes in older cities have drainage ditches or creeks on the property. Take time to inspect these areas and remove debris or dirt that might obstruct the flow of water from a heavy rain. A clogged drainage ditch or creek bed can cause a lot of damage by flooding your Cuyahoga Heights property during, or even after, a storm. Do you know what to do in the event of a flood?

In the event of a storm, do you have a system in place that will help you to get information to everyone you care about in case of a weather emergency? Most of us use our cell phones to communicate these days, but in the case of a bad storm, your cell phone service could be at risk. You might consider installing a good old-fashioned landline, just in case. If you or a family member gets stuck at work or out doing errands, others will worry, so keeping those lines of communication open can keep everyone safe and worry-free.

SERVPRO of Beachwood and Cleveland Northeast is here to help in the event of storm damage, fire damage, or mold issues. You can give us a call today at (216) 464-4498; we’re here to help!
