DIY Tips for After Storm Clean up?

Trees Falling During Storm Storm

Watching summer storms is fun and exciting when you're dry and safe at home, but clearing them can be a nightmare once the skies clear. With these four tips, you can beautify your home and garden in no time.

  • Know what you're dealing with: Head outside and inspect your property after the storm has passed. Look for damage that requires immediate attention, such as a fallen power cord or a broken or leaking pipe. Record any damage you see, and be sure to take photos if you need to file an insurance claim.
  • Pick up the broken parts: Once you've inspected your property, the real cleanup can begin. Start by picking up debris that has fallen in your yard and cleaning your gutters. Contact your local waste authority to find out if the additional collection is planned, when the collection will take place, and any special requirements.
  • Check Your Plants and Flowers: Identify plants or flowers with broken stems. Remove damaged plant parts to prevent disease, but do not cut more than a third of the plant. Plants uprooted during a storm can be replanted. You do it fast, and the plant only needs moderate damage.
  • Repair Your Trees: The first thing to do when you damage a tree on your property is to determine if it is safe to leave the tree. You should consult a professional for severe damage that can destabilize the tree.

Sometimes you cannot handle the damage caused by a storm on your own. If you live in North Arlington and are looking for professional Storm Restoration Services in North Arlington, you can count on SERVPRO professionals to help you recover.
