Although you may be all warm and fuzzy with thoughts of freshly fallen snow, a crackling fire and a warm mug of hot chocolate, damage that may come from a winter storm is infinitely less cozy.  Storm and flood damage can be devastating and occur when you least expect it. Storm damage may include flooding from heavy rainfall, snow, freezing pipes or roof leaks from heavy wind and driven rains. Here are some steps to make your home more resistant during a storm:

  • Protect potential wind and water entry points
  • Make sure roof shingles are secure using roofing cement
  • Make sure any openings or cracks by phone and cable lines are chalked up
  • Install proper weighted shutters to cover your windows and doorways
  • Invest in a heavy-duty garage
  • Protect and secure your HVAC system
  • Secure any loose item outside i.e., bikes and trashcans

But in the event your winter dreams of sugar plums fairies and candy canes turn into a personal version of the Grinch who stole Christmas, SERVPRO®‌ ‌of‌ ‌Charles‌ ‌County‌ ‌and‌ ‌SERVPRO®‌ ‌of‌ ‌Oxon‌ ‌Hill‌ are here to help! We can be reached by calling on (301)‌ ‌753-8313 for storm damage repair and restoration service.‌
