It's certainly that time again when the Phoenix skies begin to cover with clouds in the afternoon and before you know it the thunder is deafening and the lightening is blinding....what we Phoenician's call Monsoon Season! During this season traffic becomes a mess as the dark clouds roll in and getting out of your car makes you look like a drowned rat BUT let's not forget what these nasty storms can do to your Phoenix home. As a result we have put together the top three things that can be done to prep your Phoenix rental home for monsoon season.
1. Have your roof thoroughly inspected by a professional roofer who can advise of broken roof tiles and leaks. Have any repairs completed on your roof by end of May before the monsoon season starts.
2. Hire a professional landscaper at the beginning of June to remove all branches from near the property and to remove any trees that could potentially hit the property if struck by lightening. Additionally, stake down any young trees that could be uprooted by the storm.
3. Check drainage around the entire property. Have you ever noticed when it rains there are pools of water in the yard? If so, be sure to get those evaluated as you may need to have your grounds leveled to avoid possible flooding.
In summary, monsoon season can be a very dangerous and expensive time in Phoenix so it is best to prepare your Phoenix rental home prior to the beginning of the storms.
