Inexpensive Easy Ways to Prevent Floods
In Northeast, Ohio, storms are inevitable and we often get high winds from very big tropical storms! Hurricane season is here and it brings damaging rain from strong storms down south! At Mark’s Cleaning Service, we are always prepared for catastrophic events and ready to answer your call with an immediate response. Here are some safe, inexpensive tips you can follow considering you are a homeowner and minimize losses to your home:
-Cover Your AC Unit During a Major Storm
It’s smart to cover your AC unit during a strong storm to prevent flying debris caused by wind damage. Using trash bags or tarp to cover your AC unit can trap moisture inside your unit
-Protect Your Windows and Doors
If you do not have storm shutters, stock up on plywood in advance. In the likely event of a major storm happens;
cover all windows as well as glass doors with shutters or plywood.
-Keep Downspouts and Gutters Clear
It is very important to note that flooding in the home is caused by clogged gutters and downspouts can often lead to overflow around your homes foundation.
-Seal Doors and Windows
Any loose doors and windows that leak water can cause mold growth and water damage. Properly sealing doors and windows is an easy and affordable measure to take.
These inexpensive measures can be taken to drastically decrease the chance of flooding.
