Longwood, FL, August 12, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Kim Williams Allstate Insurance Agency located at 237 N. Hunt Club Boulevard in Longwood, Florida announces their newest addition to their website, their 2014 online homeowners hurricane protection guide. This new feature offers tips for homeowners to better prepare for this year’s hurricane season. The online guide offers further information on how to protect a home or condominium in the event a homeowner is in the on-coming path of a hurricane.
“Claims on a homeowners insurance policy is so common in Florida especially in the Summer with our afternoon strong storms that brings impressive lighting and the ability to produce golf ball size hail. A hurricane is a different animal all in itself. Driving rain for days on end can push a roof to start leaking, topple trees onto roofs and cause flooding. There are steps that homeowners can take to protect their home should they be in the path of a hurricane. Our online guide offers up some easy ways homeowners can protect their house as well as to help them account for their valuables,” explains Kim Williams, owner/agent of Kimco Insurance, Inc.
Homeowners will find tips such as trimming trees, removing debris from the yard that could become “air-born” in high winds, cleaning gutters and removing debris that could block them, draining pools, stocking up with sandbags, keeping additional gas on hand and securing a generator in the event homeowners lose power. There are many more tips online at http://www.Kimcoinsurance.com.
Williams adds, “We always recommend homeowners take inventory of their household belongings especially those of value. Jewelry, financial paperwork, bank information, mortgage paperwork, family pictures and pretty much anything of value or information that holds financial and identity should all be secured in a waterproof container. In the event a homeowner must evacuate they want to be able to quickly grab this information and take it with them. It’s a great idea as well for homeowners to capture a video of the interior of their home or condo as well as take photos or videos of any additional outbuildings or garages. We highly recommend documenting what a property looks like before a storm in the event an owner needs to make a claim. Flooding can be a major problem for residents in low lying areas. We stress that if homeowners do need to evacuate they get as much as they can off the floors, including rolling up throw carpeting, runners, small tables and anything that could get submerged should water leak in their home due to flooding.”
