How Can I Best Prepare For Spring Storms In Hermitage/Donelson?

5/23/2022 (Permalink)

Spring storms in the Hermitage/Donelson area can be unpredictable and dangerous. These storms bring heavy rain and high winds; flooding and damage to roads and buildings are often a result. 

Being as prepared as possible is an intelligent way to stay safe and prevent damage to your Hermitage/Donelson home or business. We’ve got some preparation tips for you today that you can use for your location:

What Are Some Spring Storm Preparation Tips I Can Use To Protect My Hermitage/Donelson Home Or Business?

Here at SERVPRO, we know what will happen during a Spring storm, so we know what to prepare for! Our extensive experience with Nashville area storm damage has helped us compile the following tips:

  • Conduct an inspection of your home or business and grounds before inclement weather hits; a leaky roof or windows can cause significant problems during heavy rainfall and strong winds. All your exterior doors and windows should fit correctly and be weather-stripped. Roofing needs to be evaluated and repaired ahead of time to withstand inclement weather conditions. 
  • Unstable large trees and bushes can be dangerous in high winds. Trim back trees and bushes with large, heavy branches that are not in good condition, so windows and vehicles are not in danger of being destroyed by flying debris. 
  • Many neighborhoods have drainage ditches or creeks meant to handle excess water. Inspect these areas and remove debris or dirt that obstructs water flow. A clogged drainage ditch or creek bed will back up and flood property during and after a storm. 
  • Most of us use our cell phones to communicate, but in the case of a bad storm, your cell phone service may not be available. Consider installing a landline if your cell phone towers are damaged or go down. Have an emergency radio and a supply of batteries on hand to receive emergency updates and alerts.
