How to Prepare your Property for Hurricanes and Tropical Storms
Micco Land Services shares tips to make sure your home and property sustain the least amount of damage from Florida’s brutal storm season.
Secure or Remove Loose objects
Be sure to strap down items that need to stay outside and bring all other items such as plants, equipment, and chairs that can become projectiles into your house, shed, or garage.
Remove or Trim Trees and Brush
High winds will cause trees and branches to fall. Prepare by making sure damaged trees on your property are removed and trimmed on a regular basis. Your home should be safely away from the stump of any tree, usually, this requires about 40 feet of clearance.
Secure Overhangs, Fencing, and Sheds
Hurricane-force winds will move even large objects to make sure you secure everything you are not moving inside.
Place a sandbag barrier around your home. Especially doors and door wells that are likely to leak when a tropical storm hits.

Put Up Storm Shutters or Plywood
Block all glass windows and doors. The force of high storm winds will break glass even without taking into account projectiles that can blow into your house!
