Hurricane season is upon us and if you are not prepared, you may quickly find yourself in one of those long lines at the local home improvement store. Before you panic, you can quickly and easily start to pack up some of the items that will pose a hazard, if a storm does hit. Below, we will go over some of the items you need to put in your self-storage unit this hurricane season.
- Flower and Plant Pots
Flower and plant pots can become a hazard, especially if the winds around your home pick up. It is important that you bring your plants inside and that you store any empty pots in your storage unit. You can bring your plants and pots back outside once hurricane season has passed.
- Swing Sets
While your swing set may be anchored into the ground, strong hurricane winds can become a problem. Of course, your children likely want to use the swing set during the summer, so you can leave it in your yard until there is impending doom from a hurricane.
Once a hurricane approaches or you are in the danger zone, you should disassemble the swing set and place it in your storage unit for safe keeping.
