How to Prepare Your Home for a Storm
The tulips are flowering and the weather’s warming up. Those are sure signs that spring is beginning to bloom — which means spring weather is here, too. Spring can bring some strong storms your way. But, with a little storm preparation, you’ll be ready to protect your home against Mother Nature. Here are some spring weather safety tips to help you better understand how to prepare your home for spring storms.
If you ever have to make a sump pump and water backup claim, creating a home inventory will help get you back on your feet more quickly. Begin your home inventory by taking a video of your home and your most valuable possessions. Be sure to include model and serial numbers.
And don’t forget to tour the exterior of your home, capturing your outdoor furniture, unattached structures and other items on your property like swimming pools and trampolines.
Get the Coverage Your Home Needs
Mother Nature may be unpredictable, but you can still prepare for the unexpected. For example, if you live in an area prone to flooding, you may want to consider additional flood insurance coverage for extra protection. Talk to your American Family Insurance agent to review your homeowners insurance and help you get the storm protection you need — to keep you and your family safe all year long.
