How to Prepare Your House for a Hurricane Evacuation

Palm tress blowing in a stormLiving in Florida has many perks. Unfortunately, hurricanes aren’t one of them. When a storm is predicted to approach too close for comfort, you may need to evacuate your home.

Here is how you can prepare your house for a hurricane evacuation as safely and efficiently as possible:

Take Detailed Inventory

Make sure to thoroughly take stock of what you have. Write everything down and take pictures on your phone. After a hurricane, having this catalog of items is beneficial for both insurance purposes and your own records. Keeping track of where things are is essential because they may not be in the same place you left them once the storm is over.

Clear Your Front and Back Yards

Bring any outdoor furniture and décor inside so that it doesn’t fly around during the storm. The last thing you want is to lose your furniture or, even worse, risk it hitting your home or someone else’s property.

Secure Your Windows and Doors

Securing your windows and doors is essential to making sure your home stays protected while you’re gone. Utilizing sandbags and shutters is fairly effective. However, when you have to leave quickly, taking the time to set everything up can be daunting and way too time consuming. Investing in impact windows and doors is your best bet when it comes to protecting your home as efficiently as possible.
