Floods are the most common hazards in the United States.  Whether you live and work on a coastline, along with city streets, in a basin, near a river, or even in the desert, there is a potential for suffering flood damage. 

What FEMA suggests you can do now:

  • Have qualified professionals to evaluate the furnace, water heater and electric panel if susceptible
  • Install “check valves” in sewer traps a prevent flood water from backing up into the drains of your home
  • Seal walls in basements with waterproofing compounds to avoid seepage.

What FEMA suggests when a flood is imminent:

  • Move essential or unreplaceable items to an upper floor, when possible
  • Turn off utilities at the main switches if instructed to do so
  • Disconnect electrical appliances. Do not touch electrical equipment if you are wet or standing in water

If a flood does strike your business or home, give SERVPRO of Sugar Land a call.  Even minor floods have the potential to cause major damage to a structure, and the cleanup is often an overwhelming and daunting task.  SERVPRO of Sugar Land has the tools and equipment to help you during a traumatic time.
