Limiting the Impact of Storm Damage to your Business – Top Tips from Doyle Mahon Insurances

With storm season approaching, taking a number of simple measures will help minimise damage to your property. Keep an eye out for any maintenance required or potential hazards on your property:

  1. Clean dead leaves and other debris from your gutters to avoid rainwater overflowing onto your roof
  2. Check Roof tiles and slates are secure so you do not get water damage in the loft/roof space
  3. Check your aerial is properly secured
  4. Remove dead/damaged branches from any trees which could damage your property in stormy weather

For our business customers:

  1. Protect windows from flying debris
  2. Walk the grounds; move objects inside that could become missiles in high winds
  3. Anchor any equipment stored outside that could be moved by high winds
  4. Move supplies stored outside to inside storage
  5. Protect vital records against flooding and wind
  6. Secure backup records
  7. Inspect fire protection equipment
  8. Check the supply and serviceability of sandbags

Take heed of weather warnings in force and be prepared for power outages – Some simple tips:

  • Make sure your mobile phone is charged fully
  • Be patient with overstretched ESB workers working in difficult conditions
  • Have candles and torches handy
  • Don’t underestimate the conditions or be bravado about your driving ability – let the storm pass
  • Have the emergency services numbers on your phone
