Farmer’s Almanac Predictions for Storms in Clifton, NJ

June 5th, 2015 · No Comments

Be ready! While ServiceMaster Metropolitan offers storm damage services in Clifton, NJ—and throughout the metro region—we want our clients to do the best they can to mitigate possible storm damage to homes and businesses. By keeping an eye on the weather and by following a few simple preventive measures, you can minimize costs and stress after storms.

For over 100 years, the Farmer’s Almanac has offered long-range weather predictions, re-reported by the media and watched with interest not only by farmers, but also by truckers, pilots, business owners, and interested citizens. This year, June is forecast to be wet, with a strong possibility of sudden storms that may lead to flash flooding. In fact, the Almanac predicts a high chance of thunderstorms for every week in June! Be sure to keep an eye on local weather to know when there may be a chance for storm damage. You may wish to remain near your home or business during times of rough weather, or have a trusted neighbor or employee aware of what to do, as being present during or immediately after a storm may allow you to lessen costs associated with any needed cleanup.

A usual first sign of storm damage is a leaky basement. While remembering to never wade through standing water in a basement, you may be able to detect the source of the leak early enough to safely:

  • Turn off electricity at the breaker box
  • Shut off water at the source, whether or not the leak is from a damaged pipe
  • Deactivate ventilation systems if they will be contacted by rising water

Being present immediately after storm damage will also allow you to quickly respond with an accurate assessment of damage to your insurance company, and call ServiceMaster Metropolitan to take care of the rest. In less than 24 hours, standing water can cause permanent structural damage, health risk, and mold growth. If your home or business is damaged during the forecasted wet and stormy summer, call ServiceMaster Metropolitan immediately for storm damage services, including fire damage restoration and water damage restoration, in Clifton, NJ and the surrounding area.
