Prepare Your Concord Area Home Against Flood Damage
SERVPRO Gives Tips and Flood Damage Cleanup to Concord Homeowners
Floods can develop slowly, making a homeowner feel helpless as they watch. Water begins spreading over land when rivers and waterways overfill, gaining access to homes caught within the flood plain.
There are several types of flooding that might affect your Concord area home. Flood damage affects your home and its surrounding environment, occurring anytime of the year. Severe storms can even bring flash floods to the area that give you little to no warning and cause massive damage.
Floodwater itself can be extremely hazardous, taking as little as 15cms of fast-flowing water to knock a full-grown human off their feet. A flood can disrupt both public and personal transportation, by cutting off roads, railways, and even cut communication lines by destroying telephone poles and other equipment.
Floods carry large amounts of water and anything it can carry over large areas, displacing soil nutrients and eroding agricultural lands. Severe floods do far more than ruins homes or destroy personal property, the environment and wildlife in the area are also at risk. What can you do?
You should always take the time to understand more about where you live. If your home lies within a floodplain, never take chances and get your family to safety at the first signs of a flood. Watch your local news station for notifications, and prepare your home for the event. Do you have a distinct flood insurance policy?
