Flood Tips

2/21/2019 (Permalink)

Did you know that floods are the most common natural disasters in the U.S. Heavy rainstorm can cause significant
flooding, contributing to flash floods, mud-flows,
or over-topping levees and dams. Here in California heavy rains can happen, putting properties like your home or business at risk. 

Tips to help your home or business avoid floods 

  • Purchase flood insurance. (Call your insurance agent make sure your covered for FLOODS)
  • Install rain gutters and other drainage systems. (Clean out rain gutters frequently)
  • Fix any leaks IMMEDIATELY.
  • Extra roof protection (spend a few hundred dollars more to install a rubber roof underlayment, a waterproof barrier that goes under the shingles and protects the roof from water intrusion.)

Tips for drivers during the rain season

  • Avoid cruise control (This feature works great in dry conditions, but when used in wet conditions, the chance of losing control of the vehicle can increase)
  • Slow down and leave room in front of you (Slowing down during wet weather driving can be critical to reducing a car’s chance of hydroplaning, when the tires rise up on a film of water.)

Remember if you do experience a flood in your home or business SERVPRO of Crescenta Valley / East Glendale is one call away and we make your water damage "Like it never even happened."
