Old rusty pipe bursted and water leaking Pipe bursts are common with low temperatures and can lead to water damage.

When Old Man Winter rises from his slumber and wreaks havoc on your business in Bountiful, UT, there may be little to no warning. That’s why preparation is the key to protecting your business from inclement weather, such as a snow storm.

3 Ways To Prepare For Bad Weather



1. Know the Area’s Winter Storm History

Nobody can predict the severity of a winter season, but it doesn’t hurt to know what the past winters have brought to your area. If you have just opened a business in an unfamiliar city, look online for storms and temperatures from previous winters.

2. Prepare Your Business for Winter Weather

Getting ready for a snow storm should begin before the mercury in the thermometer begins to dip. When the weather is still warm, you should start doing an assessment of your business in preparation for the winter. Do a close examination of the windows and doors to see if any air is getting inside the building. Caulking and weather stripping are great tools for insulating your business. Inspect your pipes and do what is necessary to prevent a pipe burst.

3. Create a Storm Plan for Your Employees

Encourage your employees to sign up for your area’s storm warning system and to pay attention to local forecasts when there is a chance of a winter storm. If possible, allow your employees the option of working from home. Have an alert system in place to let your employees know if the office will close due to inclement weather.

Unless you live in a tropical area, there’s a good chance Old Man Winter will punish your city with a snow storm at some point during the season. Good winter preparation is the best line of defense against a fierce wintery storm. Sometimes a storm could be so severe that some damage is unavoidable. If your business is affected, be sure to have a good contact for a company that handles storm damage restoration.
