Winter Storm Preparedness Tips for Florence Residents?

A dad shows his son how to install weather stripping around a window. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Lane County.

Our South Eugene and Florence team offers this helpful information from the Oregon Automobile Association for winterizing your home in Florence:

Check your heating system.

Inspect and insulate pipes.

Carefully inspect pipes for cracks and leaks, and have them repaired as soon as possible. Insulate exposed pipes and seal cracks to prevent them from bursting.

Know the location of the main water shutoff valve.

If your pipes freeze, the quicker you shut off the water, the better your chance of preventing them from bursting and causing major damage.

Check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Regularly check your detectors to make sure they are in working condition.

Clean out gutters.

Remove leaves, sticks, and other debris from gutters so rain and melting snow can flow freely.

Trim trees and remove dead branches.

Ice, snow, wind, and rain can cause weak trees and tree limbs to fall and damage your car, home, or even people walking on your property.

Seal exterior cracks and holes.

Caulk openings and install weather stripping around windows and doors to prevent cold air and moisture from entering.

Stock up on emergency items.

Be sure you have flashlights and a portable radio with extra batteries, necessary medications, at least three days of water and canned food for family and pets, a can opener, first-aid supplies, heating fuel, and a lighter or a generous supply of matches on hand.
