#4 Hurricane Hint – Clean Out the Basement

You need to be prepared for flooding on the ground floor of your home.  Now is the time to clean the basement.  Discard the boxes that you’ve been piling up down there.  Move yard chemicals and fertilizers up onto a shelf.  Get rid of old cans of paint and chemicals (You can take them to Seabrook’s Recycling Center).  Get everything up off the floor so that it doesn’t become saturated or worse, requiring a toxic waste clean-up following a flood.

While you’re in the basement, make sure nothing is blocking your flood vents and that they work properly.

Remember, be prepared; stay safe.
