Question: How to prepare for storm related power outages ?

 With the increasingly heavy precipitation of snow and rain storms from climate change, power outages may become more common. Here is a list of suggestions to help you weather out a storm related  power outage by  ``camping`out `  in your home:  These suggestions are meant to be though about and implemented  BEFORE the storm hits:

  1. Fill your vehicle’s gas tank – gas pumps are electronic, and cannot work without power
  2. Have at least $200.00 in cash – ATM, Debit and Credit Cards will not work without power.
  3. If you live out of town and are on a well – always have several sealed containers with potable water ready as the pump will not work without power, so no water for cooking cleaning, washing or toilets.
  4. Food – stock up on veggies, fruit, energy bars, nuts, tinned food and sandwich stuff  as the stove and microwave will not work without power. If you have a barbeque, that is your only cooking source and only a barbeque outside away from windows and doors.
  5. Nightlights – rechargeable LED night lights. 1 in every room really helps. They only go on when the power is out, and shut off when power is restored. Awesome.
  6. A good LED flashlight and fresh batteries.
  7. Do Not Use Candles – ask your local fireman what they think of candles. Enough said.
  8. Pack of cards, board games, books – family time.

Be safe, make smart decisions, and make the most of the situation...who knows.. you might like camping.

Question: As a homeowner, what can I do to minimize flood damage ?

With the increasing severity of rainstorms, so are the number of household floods. Your home is your castle, so it makes sense that homeowners be proactive in protecting their homes. Here are several items worth considering to help minimize risk and damage:

  1. Review your insurance policy with your insurance company. Are you covered for all possibilities? How much is your insurance deductible? Should you change or upgrade your policy ?
  2. Regular maintenance. Clean your gutters often and ensure any ground/rain water runs away from your home. Check any interior exposed waterlines for damage, condensation or leaks. Check the floor around the hot water tank for any moisture or leaks. If you see any, call your local plumber and have any leaks checked.
  3. Organize your basement. Does it have a floor drain ? Is the drain obstructed ? ( If you do not have a floor drain, you may contact a local Builder to see if it is possible to put one in). Are you storing items in cardboard boxes on the floor or in plastic containers with sealed lids up on a shelf ? Assume your basement has 2-3 feet of water in it. Is there anything you would change or do differently right now?
  4. How old is your hot water tank ? When does the warranty expire ? Does the hot water tank sit in a drainage pan ? It is the homeowner’s responsibility to replace the tank before the warranty expires, otherwise you may not be covered by insurance if the tank leaks and causes water damage.
  5. Going away and leaving the home unoccupied ? Did you turn down the temperature on the hot water tank and turn off the main water line ? (In the event your hot water tank leaks or a water line breaks while you are away, the water damage may be limited to the amount of water in the tank and water lines). Have someone (a family member, friend, neighbour) check all areas of the house daily while you are away. A little work and research now on the homeowners part can go a long way in reducing and minimizing damage and expense in a flood to your home and will give you more peace of mind.
