Hurricane Season is Coming - Protect Your Northwest DC Home Now!

After the crazy up-and-down weather we’ve experienced in the Northwest DC area this winter, many of us are ready for the summer season, when temperatures are often more constant. We long to pull our shorts and flip flops from our closets and get out to visit Meridian Hill Park or the National Zoo. Summer can bring a lot of fun and some much-needed relaxation, but don’t forget that hurricane season is on its way, starting in June and lasting through November.

Hurricanes, with their ripping winds and torrential downpours, are an unwanted and scary experience for any homeowner. Life in our nation’s capital can feel stressful enough without a hurricane wreaking havoc on your home. Unfortunately, Northwest DC’s location brings a lot of potential for bad weather to cause some damage. With the Potomac River at Northwest DC’s side and the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, hurricanes can do some serious damage to the area, and to your home.

When a hurricane hits, your power may go out, trees in your yard may fall, flying debris could damage your property, and, of course, your house can flood. You can’t stop a hurricane from happening, but you can take some steps to prevent flooding or other complications when disaster strikes. Sure, you’ll still have some cleanup to do after a hurricane, but taking the time now to waterproof inside and outside of your home can prevent this kind of cleanup from getting worse. It’s never too early to make sure your home is prepared.

Start Outside

Don’t forget that you can prepare the exterior of your house against potential water damage, not just the inside. Ensure your yard is draining properly so as much water as possible can safely leave your yard, instead of winding up on your basement floor. Make sure your gutters are doing their job. Clogged gutters can send water sloshing over the side of your roof, and this water can easily end up indoors, so clean your gutters regularly.

Prepare Inside

Don’t rely on just your yard’s effective drainage system to carry all the water away from your house. Look for any cracks in your foundation walls that might need repair. Implement an effective drainage system to keep water outside.

What if My Home Floods?

Hurricanes hit hard with massive amounts of rain, and sometimes water gets in. Hurricanes are a scary and stressful experience, but if a flood does happen, don’t panic. Contact a company who can take care of the flood and resulting damage with care and expertise.
