Tips to help with the weather
Here are a few things we recommend you do to stay safe and get things sorted during bad weather season:
Have an emergency plan and survival kit
Hopefully you’ll never have to use it, but this is a good opportunity to prepare for the worst. Make sure your first aid supplies are stocked up, and everyone in the household knows what to do in an emergency and has a getaway kit ready.
Secure all doors and windows
In high winds, you may want to close the blinds or curtains to prevent injury from flying or shattering glass.
Lift your furniture off the floor
To limit any staining and water damage, raise furniture off the floor, particularly in areas of the house that are prone to flooding.
Prepare to stay home and off the roads
Stock up on groceries and minimise any unnecessary travel until the bad weather passes.
Make sure outdoor objects are secure
Tie down large objects like trampolines and BBQs that can get blown about and cause damage. Bring in outdoor furniture, pot plants, umbrellas, and wheelie bins if you can.
Remember - People First
Make sure you, your family, and your pets are safe and secure before doing anything else. Take notes and photographs of any damage that will help with your claim, and the sooner you contact us, the better – but you don’t have to do this while the storm is still raging. We’ll still be here to help after it has passed.
