As the summer storm season approaches here in the Denver, CO area, it’s important to take proactive steps to ensure your home is prepared for whatever Mother Nature has in store.
Here are five tips from us at AFI Insurance that can help you get ready to face a storm:
- Inspect Your Roof and Gutters: Make sure your roof is in good condition, and check the gutters for any blockages or debris that could cause problems during the storm.
- Trim Trees and Remove Debris: Before the storm arrives, trim any trees near your home that could become uprooted and remove any debris around your property that could become dangerous in high winds.
- Take Inventory of Valuables: Make a list of all valuable items in your home so you know what needs to be covered or moved into sheltered areas before the storm hits.
- Prepare an Emergency Kit: Create an emergency kit filled with water, food, medical supplies, flashlights, batteries, a first aid kit, and other essentials so you’re prepared if the power goes out or access to stores becomes limited after the storm passes through.
- Secure Outdoor Furniture: Make sure all outdoor furniture is securely fastened down and bring anything inside that has the potential to become airborne during strong winds or heavy rains.
By taking these precautionary steps now, you can help protect yourself and your home this summer storm season!
