Preparing for Flood Damage in Cutler Bay Homes
Some Preventative Measures Can Reduce the Severity of Flood Damage to Cutler Bay Properties
With the threat of imminent flooding, it is vital to take whatever steps exist to protect a home, its occupants, and its contents. While our experienced SERVPRO team can help with cleanup and recovery efforts, some early actions can help simplify that restoration process.
Protecting the House from Imminent Flooding
Early actions can help to reduce the immense impact of flooding and flood damage to Cutler Bay homes. Homeowners should be encouraged to take steps that protect their most treasured belongings and keepsakes, some of which can include:
- Move valuables to the highest levels of your home to keep them dry
- Install sandbags at the thresholds to the exterior of your home to slow water penetration
- Move first-floor items upstairs, when possible, to avoid direct contact with floodwater coming into the house.
