Home Defense: Protect Yourself from Spring Storms

This winter’s wet and icy weather has raised questions on ways to best protect your home from things like a flooded basement or a power outage.

Did you know that one of the main causes basement water are your own downspouts, gutters and drains? If any of these are clogged or obstructed, water is unable to escape your yard and may end up in your basement. A little precaution in the form of gutter and downspout cleaning and having storm drains cleaned of tree roots can save headaches when the rains come. Gutter Boys is a reputable locally owned and operated company serving the West Shore. Visit thegutterboys.com or phone (440) 454-7040.

Last week’s high winds created power outages for about 80,000 electric customers in the Cleveland area. A home generator is a good way to keep the lights on when the power goes out. What will you do if your furnace can’t start when the power is out in cold weather? Generator Pros has answers from small and quiet portable generators to whole house systems that automatically kick on when the electricity goes off.
