How To Minimize Flood Damage to Your Home. 

Sometimes no matter how much we prepare for a flood, flooding will happen. However, we've put together a few tips to help you minimize the damage should your home flood. 

  1. Invest in flood insurance. If your home is flooded, be sure to take plenty of photos and videos for your insurance adjuster. 
  2. Be sure your gutters and drains are clear to allow water to run freely through them. 
  3. If you have a sump pump, make sure it is turned on and in good running condition. 
  4. Use sandbags to block any gaps that could lead to flooding. 
  5. If your home does flood, open up windows and doors to allow the air to move throughout the house and dry things out. 
  6. Shut off the electricity before a flood, to avoid any electrical damage.
