May 1st - 7th, 2022 is Hurricane Preparedness Week

Before hurricane season begins, take measures to protect your home. Make sure you have plywood, steel, or aluminum panels to board up windows and doors. The garage door is the most vulnerable part of the home, so make sure it is able to withstand high winds. 

Some of the things you can do:

  • Cover windows
  • Secure loose outdoor items
  • Move vehicles to safe locations
  • Trim trees
  • Secure all doors

Check out this link from the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH) with videos on how to do a DIY wind inspection plus activities you can do in one hour, one day, and one weekend to get your house ready for hurricane season.

Stay safe and be prepared. Should water damage occur after a storm, contact SERVPRO of Benton, Jasper, Newton & Southern Lake Counties at 219.779.7577
