Protect Your Belongings From Flood Damage During Hurricane Season
SERVPRO Technicians are Ready and Able to Remediate Your Damage Regardless of the Cause
Hurricane season in Florida typically means an onslaught of floods. Flood damage is a leading cause of home repairs in the state, and it also causes millions of dollars worth of property damage every year. Not only can the structures of houses be affected, but the things inside of them as well.
Many homeowners are familiar with the dangers of flood damage in Pensacola, especially during hurricane season. Even though it may not be easy to protect your home's structure and landscaping from flood waters, there are many ways to secure your possessions. While you prepare for coming storms, here are some things you can do to safeguard the contents of your home.
1. Take an inventory of your possessions to make insurance claims easier to process in the event of a water emergency. Having a list that's accurate will eliminate some of the stress if you find yourself affected by flood damage.
2. Place your important documents and records in a water safe locked box or a high area of your home. Doing so means you won't have to deal with securing new birth certificates, insurance policies, and other papers after a storm should water flood your home.
3. Get any clothing racks, books, toy bins, and food containers off the floor. If flood waters come into your house, having items already elevated could be key to preventing them from being destroyed.
4. Have the number of a flood damage repair contractor ready. Many think they'll be able to simply go online or call around to find a service when and if the time comes, but they neglect to think about the power being out or internet service being down during a storm. The quicker you can call the team at SERVPRO after flood damage has occurred, the more likely it is that we can restore and preserve your home's contents.
