Essential Tips For Protecting Your Home During Wildfire SeasonCalifornia Drought & Wildfire Season

Wildfire season is amongst us, emphasizing the importance of protecting your home from one of California’s most troubling disasters. While you may think that you have no control over these situations, taking the proper proactive measures can lessen the damages of wildfires. Below are a few essential tips for protecting your home during wildfire season:

  • In order to protect your home to the fullest, you must have at least 100 feet of defensible space where there are no combustibles. Each state and city have unique requirements for exactly how much defensible space you are legally required to have.
  • With California continuing to suffer from one of the most troubling droughts, there is no better time than wildfire season to replace your dry landscape with drought tolerant plants. There are so many options that will still maintain the beauty of your home and yard that do not act as a hazard in terms of both fire and water.
  • What hardwoods are you using in your home’s designs? It is important to opt for less flammable hardwoods, such as cherry, poplar, and maple.
  • Have you ever considered installing residential sprinklers on your home? Not only will this provide you with some assistance in the event of a fire, but it will also land you a homeowner’s insurance discount. We recommend utilizing the money you save with that discount to increase the limits on your policy.

Contact Remland Insurance in the City of Orange for all of your California homeowners insurance needs. If you are worried about your home’s proximity to dry mountain ranges and hillsides, it may be advantageous to increase the limits of your homeowner’s insurance policy during wildfire season.
