Prevent Storm Damage In Your Avondale Home

8/19/2019 (Permalink)

Prevent storm damage from affecting your Avondale home.

Monsoon season here in Avondale, Goodyear and for most of the Valley, has had a pretty slow kickoff than what we are normally used to seeing.  This monsoon season, the valley has seen rainfall amounts of .27” which is 83% below normal than the 1.55” of what we’ve typically averaged. We have a good month left in the monsoon season and we have our fingers crossed that we’ll be receiving some much needed moisture in our desert  Regardless of a slow monsoon season or not, it’s important for homeowners to understand storm damage and how to reduce the chances of it affecting your property. Here’s how to do so.

  • Prepare for the storm season or incoming storms by inspecting your property and making the necessary repairs before a storm arrives.
  • Prepare for an incoming storm by placing sandbags around your home to divert water and mud away from your property, especially if it’s in a low elevation area. Make sure to trim any tree branches that have the potential of landing on your home.
  • Inspect your property after a storm.
  • If you discover damages, make sure to repair them right away.

In addition, some extra safety measures to take into consideration are:

  • Report storm damage to public streets and roads such as flooded areas, downed trees, and power lines.
  • Pay attention to the news and weather stations so you are up to date on incoming storms.
  • Make sure you know where to acquire materials such as sandbags.
  • Prepare an emergency kit which should include a first aid kit, food and water that’s lasts up to 5 days, blankets, batteries and flashlights.
