Be Sure Your Home Is Spring Storm-Safe l SERVPRO of North Fort Worth
Texans endured a surprising winter this year, including a late-season snowstorm and a pandemic. If you’re one of the millions of us who are ready for spring to get here, you aren’t alone.
Spring fever is expected in the Fort Worth area this year, and many residents are excited about the changes a new season will bring. That includes longer, sunny days and the chance to spend more time outdoors.
No matter if you’re planning to take a weekend hiking trip or spend your spring grilling in your backyard, there are plenty of ways to relax and enjoy this new season.
While you’re dreaming of how you’ll spend the spring, it’s a good idea to consider doing some important projects around the house, too. One of the biggest threats during spring is that your home will be impacted by severe weather, like thunderstorms.
Sometimes, these storms are intense and can even include heavy winds, hail and torrential rain.
There’s nothing we can do to stop a storm from impacting our homes and families. But there’s plenty we can do to help them stay safer when it does.
Here’s how you can put your home in the best position to weather the coming storms.
Important Spring Storm Safety Projects
These projects are worth a spot on our spring to-do list:
Make removing overhanging limbs and branches a priority. Anything that’s hanging over your roof or garage can fall and damage it when the winds get strong. Remove this hazard by trimming your trees.
Declutter your home’s gutters. This project will keep the water around your house moving in the right direction (away) instead of backing up and causing water damage.
Check your roof for damage. Be sure your roof doesn’t have any missing shingles or leaks. Repairing them will make your home safer.
Look for ways to secure loose items around your home. Don’t let unsecured furniture or other similar items become tools for wind damage. Trim back trees that need it and secure everything you can.
