How Can I Prepare My Home for a Hurricane in Charlottesville?

7/11/2023 (Permalink)

A large tree has fallen across a street. We are leaders in storm damage restoration services in Albemarle County.

Our local Charlottesville team is a trusted leader in storm damage restoration services. It’s Atlantic hurricane season until November 30, and if you haven’t already, now is a good time to prepare your home. Here are some tips from the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help you get your home ready for hurricane season:

Get your home ready.

  • Clear your yard. Make sure there’s nothing that could blow around during the storm and damage your home. Move bikes, lawn furniture, grills, propane tanks, and building material inside or under a shelter.
  • Cover up windows and doors. Use storm shutters or nail pieces of plywood to the outside window frames to protect your windows. This can help keep you safe from pieces of shattered glass.
  • Be ready to turn off your power. If you see flooding, downed power lines, or you have to leave your home, switch your power off.
  • Fill clean water containers with drinking water. You’ll want to do this in case you lose your water supply during the storm. You can also fill up your sinks and bathtubs with water for washing.
  • Check your carbon monoxide (CO) detector’s battery to prevent CO poisoning
