How To Prepare for Flood Damage
Flooding can be devastating to your home, but there are steps you can take to prevent and recover from this disaster. By planning for a storm, you will reduce the amount of damage to your home.
Clean the Gutters
Clean gutters will direct water to proper drainage areas and away from your home. If gutters are clogged, water can overflow and saturate the ground around the foundation and damage the property.
Maintain the Storm Drains
Storm drains are needed to direct water away from your property. If you see a problem with your storm drains, contact your local authorities so they can fix the issue.
Have a Response Plan
Be prepared for flooding. Listen for weather updates, create an emergency kit, and move to higher ground.
