Check Your Gutters When It's Safe
Gutters are important for the drainage of your home. And if something bad happens to them, it can cause chaos and cost a lot of money that you may not have. So, clean out your gutters so that water can flow freely when it rains a lot. Check on them and get rid of them when it's safe. This will help protect your roof and foundation from water damage. A drain unblocking service will become necessary if you let things get out of hand. A great service, but more money out.

Protect Your Electrics
Storms are a natural part of spring, and it seems like they get worse each year. By putting in surge protectors, you can help protect your expensive electronics. This will keep them safe from power surges when there is lightning. They work to stop power surges from getting to your electronics by soaking up the extra energy they produce. But you should know that surge protectors aren't perfect and can't protect you from all types of electrical power surges.

Use The News To Get Your Home Spring Ready
These days, the news is everywhere. And Google's App store has more than 2,500 news channel apps. So you're never too far from knowing what's going on. This is great because it helps a lot to stay up to date on weather warnings and forecasts. If a storm is coming, make sure you and your home are safe by taking the right steps. Also, make sure you have a plan for what to do if there is a big storm and know where the safest places are in your home.

Secure Your Home from Wind and Rain
Your house is a great way to stay safe from bad weather. But you really need to put in some work. For example, you must try to keep wind damage to a minimum. If you have furniture or other items on your porch or deck, secure them or bring them inside before a storm, so they don't become projectiles. Also, make sure the seals around your doors and windows are tight using tape or sealing calking. This will help stop water from getting in when it rains a lot.

Keep An Emergency Kit At Home
Bad weather can make it hard for emergency services to get to you when you need them. So, you should have a kit ready in case the power goes out, or you get hurt. This should include things like flashlights, batteries, bottled water, non-perishable food, and a first aid kit. You have no idea how long this will take. So stocking the essentials is, well, essential. It's also important to check your emergency kit every so often and replace any expired items such as food cans.
