Spring Storm Preparedness Tips  

spring storm

Spring weather can be unpredictable at best and disastrous at worst. To get ready for this upcoming Spring's tumultuous weather, consider the following tips:

Put Together an Emergency Kit for Potential Power Outages:

It’s important to gather certain items to help you get through a power loss during a storm. A well-rounded emergency kit should include:

  • Flashlight and plenty of extra batteries
  • Candles and matches or lighters
  • Weather radio and batteries
  • A secondary phone battery or solar charger
  • First aid kit for minor injuries
  • Extra water to cook with and drink
  • Non-perishable food items

Prepare Your Home for Flooding:

Flooding is the single most common natural disaster in America. Therefore, you need to ensure you are ready for this risk. Here are some ways to get your home flood ready:

  • Make sure your gutters are free of debris before new storms come into your area. This will ensure they work properly to move water away from your home.
  • Ensure your home owner's policy includes flood insurance. In almost every instance, flood insurance requires an additional policy. Make sure you find out before the storm whether or not you need additional coverage for your home.
  • If you do experience flooding, no matter how minor it may seem, contact the experts at Service Master of Buncombe County as soon as possible. Don't try to take care of it alone, flood water damage requires professional attention.

    When Mr. Kim came to our house he looked around and immediately and professionally told us what we needed to do and what would happen. ServiceMaster talked with our insurance co. and they found us a nice little house on Fairview on the mountain it was a very nice vacation rental.

    They had a lot to do new cabinets in the kitchen, kitchen flood, dining room floor, laundry room floor, guest room floor. They are beautiful now we are pleased with the work. The men and women that came to help us they were so kind and the workers always helped to calm us and let us know we were in good hands with ServiceMaster, they told us it all would be made right.

    At this time my husband needed knee surgery and we had so much stress and all the workers helped to let us know everything would work out just right. We have been telling our friends about how great ServiceMaster company is. They are our pick to help us from now on in emergency situations.
