PLACERVILLE, Calif., Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As a family business since 1979, Gilmore Heating, Air, Solar understands the importance of home and family, and how crucial it is to be prepared for any emergency. September, National Preparedness Month, serves as a reminder to prepare, now and throughout the year, for a wide range of emergencies.
"We've had more than our share of emergencies," says Darrin Gilmore, general manager of Gilmore Heating, Air, Solar. "Here in the Sacramento area, we see a wide range of emergencies, from severe storms to wildfires. Preparing in advance can make all the difference. Often that means making preventive home improvements, and we stand ready and willing to help with that."
Here are some ways you can help get your home or business ready for emergencies:
- Check out your windows, shutters, gutters, drains and roof. Make sure there's nothing that could come off easily. Loose items could become projectiles in high winds, and should be fixed immediately.
- Inspect the ground around your home or business for low or damp areas. Those areas could be flood hazards. Drainage problems are issues that require professional help. If you have large trees around your home or business, inspect them carefully. Are there any dead or damaged areas? If so, call a licensed tree surgeon to inspect any trees or branches that look like they could damage your home or property and have them removed.
- Mold can develop in damp areas in just 24 hours, and that can be a major health issue. Check interior walls, carpeting, flooring, ceiling, windowsills, corners and basements for signs of water damage or dampness.
- If you find dampness, it means you have water coming from somewhere. A professional will need to examine and repair the damp areas now to prevent further damage from a storm or weather event.
