Here's Why You Should Always Close the Interior Doors In Your Home Before a Hurricane
There's no such thing as being over-prepared when you know a natural disaster is headed your way. Especially when a hurricane is quickly approaching, preparedness is key to staying safe.
Whether you evacuate or decide to wait it out at home, there's an important way to protect your home from damage during a hurricane that you may not know about.
After rigorous wind testing, the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety is recommending that homeowners make sure toclose all interior doors, as well as all windows and exterior doors.
This may sound like simple advice, but when a storm like Hurricane Irma brings strong winds, homes are under extreme pressure. When wind enters through any open door or window, it can create even more pressure on the roof. Essentially, the pressure in your home builds like the air in a balloon, which can eventually cause your roof to cave in and allow water into your house, according to IBHS.
Closing all interior doors helps disperse the pressure throughout your home, reducing the effect that all of that force can have on your roof—basically the one thing that separates you from the storm.
To ensure that your roof stays put and that you and your family stay out of harm's way, closeallinterior doors, windows, and exterior doors of your home.
