Disaster Assistance Always Available from SERVPRO of Worcester
Preparation is Key to Surviving Flooding and Subsequent Flood Damage
When you live in an area historically plagued by flooding, discovering ways to protect your home and family becomes vital. We can help you prepare your home against flooding, beginning with the information you find below.
Start by understanding that flooding can occur anywhere, even your Cherry Valley home is susceptible to flood damage. Creating a preparedness plan to get your family to safety and taking the proper precautions to prevent damages to your home is smart.
Helping by giving advice and preparing homeowners for battle against flood damage causing devastation in their homes is what SERVPRO does. We begin protecting your home by providing you with a ready plan app available online or on your mobile device.
This app allows you to share information about your home's location, entry options and any specifics concerning current circumstances, including requesting services to your home during an emergency. It can also help you keep track of all of your items affected by a disaster.
Flood waters can advance quickly, which is why it is so important to plan ahead for these types of events. If your basement or crawl spaces are prone to excessive water, there are services available to help you eliminate these issues before they become a problem.
You can have new drains and sump pumps installed to help with water removal during an emergency. Have professional technicians, like those offered at SERVPRO, perform proper grading in your yard to help keep water away from your building.
We can also offer crawl space encapsulation services to help improve your home's indoor environment and prevent damages to the structure of your building. However, these things need to be thought of before emergency strikes and are just as important as a well-planned evacuation.
Contacting your local SERVPRO office can help give you ideas of how to plan ahead and provide you with the services you deserve to save one of the biggest investments of your life, your home. Just remember that remaining safe during an emergency is of primary importance.
Therefore, practice an escape plan with the members of your family, prepare a survival kit ahead of time that includes clothing, food, and safety items that would be enough to cover a few days at least.
