Don’t put off grading your yard if you notice signs of bad drainage. Repairing your landscaping and the foundation of your house will prove to be much more expensive than fixing the immediate drainage problem, and once it’s fixed, you could make your house worth more. Grading will help you sleep better at night when that next thunderstorm rolls in, because you’ll know the water will be successfully diverted away from your house.
It’s human nature to become accustomed to watches and warnings if you live in an area that experiences such warnings every year. Resist the tendency to take these too lightly. Every storm is different, and a complex number of factors can either increase or decrease any storm’s intensity quickly. Review the experiences of others to see how your carrier handled similar claims in the past, and above all, stay safe.
The control panel is used to arm and disarm the system. If the system is armed and one of the circuits on the window or door sensors is interrupted, an alarm sounds. If it is a professionally monitored system, that alarm also notifies the alarm company that there has been a breach. The alarm company then follows a set of procedures, including contacting the homeowner or emergency contact to make sure it is not a false alarm, and then the authorities (fire or police) are called.
