Is your property storm ready?

With storm season in full swing, it’s time to think about whether you are appropriately prepared!

Queensland storms can be severe, and the aftermath can involve a lengthy clean up mission, including cleaning up fallen trees and debris.

There are simple measures you may not have thought of that will significantly minimise the impact a storm could have on your home and property.

Here are some considerations to ensure your home is storm ready:

  1. Are your gutters, downpipes and drains clear?
    By making sure your gutters, downpipes and drains are clear – you are ensuring that water is able to drain away as quickly as possible. This is extremely important in the instance of a flood where your gutters, pipes and drains are going to be under extreme pressure. By water being able to effectively drain away it also means that you’re not going to be left with stagnant water, which can cause future property damage.
  2. Is your garden tidy?
    Securing loose objects in your garden such as furniture and also making sure unruly trees and overhanging branches are removed or trimmed will mean they don’t become a hazard in high wind speeds.
  3. Are any of your trees suffering from termite damage?
    If any of your trees are suffering from termite damage they are weaker and more susceptible to damage from the storm than healthy trees. Removing them may be an option to ensure they don’t fall, break or damage your property in a storm.

These are a few of the things that you can do to get storm ready and minimise the damage a storm could have on your home.

Contact a local tree professional such as Australian Tree Services who specialise in preventative maintenance to make sure you’re home, garden and gutters are storm ready!

If you didn’t prepare in time, Australian Tree Services can also help clean up fallen trees, branches and debris that has been left behind by a storm.
