Preparing Your Cerritos/Hawaiian Gardens Home for Unexpected Weather
What Do I Need to Prepare For a Storm in Southern California?
While we may not see heavy moisture often in Southern California, it not uncommon to see sudden and unexpected changes in weather patterns. The SERVPRO of Cerritos/Hawaiian Gardens staff would like to keep local communities informed on best practices in SoCal Storm Safety.
- Regular Exterior Home Maintenance
In the event of heavy storm patterns, it is essential that the exterior drainage systems of residences are in working order. Check to make sure that all gutters and downspouts are clear of major blockages.
- Supply Stock
In the unlikely circumstance that you are prevented from leaving your home, we recommend the following to have on hand:
- Fully Charged Flashlight
- Emergency Kit with any necessary medication
- Food & Water provisions to last for several days
- Vehicle Maintenance
During a heavy storm, moving locations or retrieving supplies might be required. It is essential that vehicles used are in proper working order. Check that tire pressure is at the dealer recommended psi, all lights and wipers are fully functional, and extra fuel is in on hand if needed.
Though we may not see much severe weather in Southern California, the SERVPRO of Cerritos/Hawaiian Gardens staff looks to always keep the local communities informed and up to date. Should your Cerritos home or place of business be impacted, we are available 24/7 to help you!
