Winter is set to officially arrive this year around Dec. 21, but depending on where you reside, winter might show up in very different ways. Winter can come on suddenly in certain locations, blanketing the ground with snow, but in other places, like Lebanon, winter stays pretty tame until unpredictable hazards pop up out of nowhere.

No matter where you welcome the winter season, preparation is essential to keeping your home free of damage and your family safe and warm.

Luckily, there are plenty of precautions you can take before winter arrives to secure the safety of your home and the people inside.

Winter Around the Nation

Frigid, moist, wet and frosty are all terms that are used when winter arrives, and their accuracy will depend on where in the United States you live.

Winter temperatures can reach extremely low levels in some regions of the Midwest and East Coast, and significant snowfall is typically expected for the duration of the season. The West Coast has milder temperatures and, instead of a blizzard, you’ll probably see rainfall.

Although there may be some localized differences in these forecasts, it is important to be ready for the unexpected in order to limit damage to a minimum.

Winter Around Lebanon

Since our community has endured some severe winters over the years, you shouldn’t rule out a major winter snowfall. If Lebanon is not completely buried in snow this winter, expect icy conditions, heavy rain, sheets of ice and an occasional snow.

No matter how hard winter hits our area this year, it’s a smart idea to prepare your Lebanon home for the worst. Even seemingly harmless conditions might lead to possible hazards and endanger your property.

Get Prepared

A great first step to being winter-ready is learning the distinct types of winter storms. You should also have multiple ways to receive weather updates. Make sure one of your sources works without power so you can stay updated even during an outage.

Preparing an emergency kit is another way to get ready for whatever weather may bring. To ensure you stay safe even when you’re on the road, build a kit separate from the one you keep at home and store it in your vehicle.

Winterizing your windows and doors is a crucial chore you need to complete ahead of winter. This can aid in preventing a water emergency and it might save you some money on your electricity.

Fix any roof damage, trim any branches that reach your home, seal up any openings around your property and add insulation to your attic to ensure your home is protected from anything winter weather throws your way.

Winter can be a very special time of year and you’ll be able to relax and enjoy it once you safeguard your property. Make an effort to secure your home, and turn to SERVPRO if you experience a winter emergency. We can be on the scene right after you call to restore your losses and get you back to normal.
