Few locations in the world are completely safe from the dangers and damage of naturally occurring floods. At Tri Span Environmental, we stand ready to pull unwanted water from your home and keep damage to a minimum.
Understanding the Direct Flood Threat
Not every area of Los Angeles or San Bernardino County are subject to the dangers and damage of flooding on a frequent basis, but unexpected flooding can happen anywhere. Weather chaos has brought about storms that seem to last for days and can suddenly drop inches of rain in a short amount of time. Flash flooding can enter your home and cause a great deal of damage within a few short minutes.
Prepare Your Home During Periods of Flood Threat
Staying weather-aware during seasonal periods likely to bring moisture is the best way to stay on top of the local threat level. Drainage ditch problems in areas like Riverside and Orange Counties can lead to localized street and home flooding. Stay prepared to get sandbags and other helpful instruments to assist in minimizing damage.
Protect Valuable Items and Paperwork
Place all paperwork that is valuable and hard to replace in plastic bags and in a high location to avoid possible floodwaters. Items like jewelry, family pictures, paintings, and other things of value should also be placed up higher if flooding begins.
Have a Family Relocation Plan
Develop a workable plan to get your family together in times of emergency and prepare a relocation destination if this becomes necessary. Always evacuate if it is apparent that it could become a dangerous situation.
Hire Professional Water Removal and Flood Abatement Services Quickly
The key to reducing water damage from flooding is to bring in a professional remediation service to begin water removal as soon as possible. Floodwater abatement can help salvage your personal items, home, and reduce the damage that can happen by allowing water to sit.
