Tips for Minimizing Flood Damage to Your Boynton Beach Property
Preparing Your Home Before a Flood Can Help Minimize the Damage
Flood is a natural disaster that can have a catastrophic impact on your Boynton Beach home. The flood waters can compromise not only the structural integrity of your home but also create quite a dangerous environment. If you are not proactive and take steps to minimize the damage, floodwater can leave you in shambles.
The first thing to do after flood damage to your Boynton Beach property is to call in the professionals. Restoring the damage caused by the flood water is a job for experienced, trained and well-equipped professionals. SERVPRO has a team of technicians that you can rely on during your time of need. Although we help restore damage to your property, there are a few things that you can do to make things a bit easy for us as well.
Flooding due to a natural cause is often predictable. It might be raining heavily, or there might be a flood warning in your area. If you are in such a situation, preparing your home can save a lot of time and money. SERVPRO professionals can also get the job done better if your home is prepared in the right way.
Move most of the light-weight electronic equipment such as TVs, CD payers, and computers to higher grounds. If you have a multi-storied house, move all these material upstairs. Also, if you can, remove all the area rugs and curtains and similar items and store them upstairs. If you can not remove the curtains, hang them on the curtain rod so that they can be protected from the flood water. More heavy electrical equipment such as fridges can be moved on bricks or blocks.
Another essential thing to do is to make sure that all your electric devices are unplugged. If possible, shut off the electricity supply to your home as well to avoid electric shock.
Once the SERVPRO professionals reach you, they take care of the rest. We make sure that your home is restored to its former glory in no time.
