This past winter has been a tough one.  Snow, power outages, trees down, thunder snow, rain, ice, sleet, did I say snow, were a common theme.  What did you learn from this crazy weather?

Here are a few tips from our experiences:

  • Replace the batteries now in your smoke detectors, flashlights and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Don’t have a carbon monoxide detector? Go out and get a couple today.  We had news reports of people in our area being rescued from carbon monoxide gases when their generator was too close to their house.  Don’t delay, a few $$$ today could save your life
  • Trim the trees in your yard and ask your neighbor to do the same if the trees are over hanging your property.  Be especially careful of any trees rubbing or banging against your roof, house, shed, and fence or located near cars.
  • Get a battery backup for your sump pump if you have one.  Check your sump pump to make sure it is working properly.
  • Check your roof or gutters and get the damage repaired before more damage is done.
  • Make sure the storm sewers near your house are free of debris.  Don’t wait for your township to clean them out.  If it is not safe for you to do these then call your township and report the problem.

The good news is that Spring and Summer are on their way.  A few preventative measures now can save you money in the future.  Even with the proper coverage, dealing with a claim can be very annoying and stressful event.
