Spring Thunderstorms are on Their Way!

Storm Damage Spring Thunderstorms are on Their Way! Stormy Weather Ahead!

Winter is finally coming to an end, so you know what that means: spring thunderstorms are right around the corner, and now is the perfect time to get ready. Stormy weather conditions in the springtime are wildly unpredictable, but can emerge out of nowhere in a moments notice, so it's important to be prepared for when they do. When word breaks that a storm is incoming this season, make sure to take all of the necessary precautions to ensure that your home will be safest after it passes.

Lightning strikes can cause your home massive amounts of damage, even if lightning doesn't hit your home at all! Power surges to your home could result in personal injury if you are using an electrical device or appliance at the time of a lightning strike. Not to mention the chance that a power surge could send a home device up in flames, resulting in a dangerous and costly house fire! To prevent these type of scenarios, installing a panel or meter serge protector, purchasing and using outlet protectors, or even just unplugging devices and small appliances during a storm could save you an unwanted home devastation this spring.

Aside from lightning strikes, the high winds and heavy rains could also cause you problems with water and structural damages. Prevention, depending on the caliber of the storm, is sometimes impossible; however, some basic tips can give you some added protection for when mother nature makes her way to your town. Making sure all of your doors and windows, are completely sealed when closed is massively important. Even the smallest leaks can wreak havoc. Cleaning your gutters regularly and maintaining your roof regularly will also reduce your risk of large loss during a storm. All water damages are preventable and making sure your roof and gutter are both clean and structurally well is half the battle.

While it is nearly impossible to predict when tragedy will occur, it is SERVPRO of Atlantic City/Hamilton/Hammonton 's job to provide 24-hour emergency service when it does. We are dedicated to being faster to any-sized disaster and can respond immediately to your storm-related issues in your home or business. Our team has the expertise to handle your storm damage needs.
