How to Manage Spring Storm Damage

5/11/2019 (Permalink)

Springtime is the right time for gardening, outdoor events, and damaging storms. Spring storms can wreak havoc on your property and enjoyment of the warmer season. Take matters into your own hands to prevent storm damage to your home, and be sure to call in the professionals at SERVPRO of Upper Darby when needed.

Prepare For Significant Rainfall

Storms can bring a significant rainfall which can quickly result in floods. Whether you have a sump pump, French Drain, or central drains, be sure to check them often and schedule routine maintenance.

Tree Maintenance

Take a look at yours and your neighbor’s trees for any suspicious limbs. These include branches that appear to be decaying, ones that are too close to power lines, and ones that are too close to your home.

Use Your Landscaping To Your Advantage

Once you know your house well, you’ll likely know the areas of your yard more prone to puddling and run off. Use landscaping to your advantage by planting wet-footed plants or installing confined pea gravel, or placing splash blocks to redirect gutter flow.

Know Before You Go

Prior to leaving your house, check the forecast and plan accordingly. If storms are in the forecast, close windows, secure pots and planters, close umbrellas, and stack or tie down patio furniture.

Prepare Your Basement

Make sure anything stored in the basement is kept at least 4 inches off the ground (especially irreplaceable items like photographs and mementos). Check your basement often for water or mold accumulation.
