Each year homeowners face flooding, whether it’s from a heavy rain storm or bursting of pipes. It’s very important to be prepared and to protect your property if you live in or work near a flood zone in California. Although you can’t stop a flood from happening, you can lessen the impact that water damage has on your woodland Hills property. Here are a few steps you can do to help keep water from invading or destroying your home and property.

Be Prepared!

The absolute best thing you can do if you think you live in a flood zone is to have a plan of action well in advance. Here is a list of things to think about:

  • Keep all of your important documents in a watertight container.
  • Have a separate lockbox for jewelry & all other valuables, or consider a safety deposit box.
  • Contact your marketing representative at SERVPRO of Woodland Hills and set up an Emergency Ready Plan (ERP) for protecting your home & getting a quick service response after a flood.

 Use Sandbags & Flood Barriers

Let’s face it, some homes are more susceptible to water damage due to grading and drainage issues. Lower flood water, however, can be contained by laying out sandbags & setting up flood barriers around your doors and foundation. Even if some water manages to get in, sandbags & flood barriers can reduce the water damage & can save you thousands of dollars in repairs.
