How to Prepare Your Home for a Winter Storm

The winter season is almost in full swing, which means so are the teeth-chattering days to come. But that’s not all — we’ll also be seeing a lot of snowy blizzards and storms. One of the biggest concerns during a winter storm is power outages that limit homeowners from protecting their home and family.

 

Here’s how to keep your home prepared for any winter storm.

Be Prepared

There’s still time to prepare your house for any rain, snow, or sleet to come. Make sure you have shovels and enough rock salt on hand to melt the snow and ice (put a little extra on your walkways and driveways). And if you have a pet, there are specific types of rock salt that are safe for them to be around. It’s also important to keep enough flashlights, batteries, and blankets handy in case of a power outage.

Spend some time outside, too — cleaning your gutters and trim any branches hanging over your roof (it could potentially damage your home if there are any harsh winds).

During a Storm

When the storm has arrived, stay inside! Don’t risk driving anywhere — not even around the block! If you have to shovel outside, be cautious and try to avoid any black ice. Also, don’t forget to take breaks while shoveling, it’s easy to overexert yourself.
