Did you know that lightning strikes are the number one leading cause of damage to electrical wiring and electronic equipment in your home or business? Check out our list of tips to protect your home from lightning damage.

Lightning Prevention Safety Tips:

To protect your home or business from lightning-related damage, the following are recommended:

  • Install a lightning¬†protection system (LPS)
  • Install surge protection devices



Actions to take AFTER the strike:

Once the storm has passed and your family and neighbors are safe, please follow these guidelines:

  • Beware of fire. Lightning strikes have the ability to cause fires that might not be immediately visible. Lightning is attracted to your wiring and plumbing, so it is common for a fire to be inside the walls of your home. If your property has been struck by lightning, it is suggested to contact your local fire department to assess for a potential fire.
  • Inspect breakers to ensure they are functioning properly.
  • Contact your insurance provider and begin the claim process.
  • Keep a detailed record of all electronic equipment damaged by the lightning.
