However, it is also known as a place where hurricanes visit due to its geographical location. Those who are heading back to the north will leave their home in Southwest Florida, you might need to have a checklist on what to do  to be prepared with the hurricane season while you are away.

Here is a checklist that will come in handy to prepare yourself if a should hurricane hits:

  1.  Insurance – Take consideration of your home and property insurance. Always prepare and keep your documents safe and readily available.  Take Photos of your home prior to leaving for up North. Items left behind, as they were of each room.
  2. Housekeeper – Be it a friend, neighbor, or family member,  ask someone to be your lookout for the house while you are away.
  1. Indoor problems –  You can also ask the person that you have requested to watch over your house to check for any indoor problems that might occur. He/she can check for leaks or mold growth.
  1. Contact Information – Prepare a contact list of the people who have keys to your home. This includes the property manager, family members, neighbor, friends, or hired service personnel. In this way, it’s easier to contact them when problems arise or maybe you can review who no longer need an access to your home, too.
  1. Humidity – Always keep track of the level of humidity inside your home. Check for the thermostat, sprinkler system, and light timers. Always keep track of these to avoid any problems in the future.
