Don't let April Showers bring you down

Rain SERVPRO of Howell/Wall is here to help

April is just around the corner and so are April showers, which in turn will bring us the most beautiful May flowers.  But, when April rains are relentless downpours, we could be faced with water damage that will cause costly repairs, like a flooded basement. Flooding is more prevalent in the spring because of the heavy rains that cannot be adequately absorbed by the still thawing yard.

Friends, you can take some simple precautions to secure your property and keep your possessions safe.

Here are some simple precautions to keep your home and possessions safe from flooding and water damage this spring:

  1. Purchase flood insurance:
    1. Most standard homeowners' and business insurance policies unfortunately do no cover flood damage. In the event of a flood, you would be responsible for covering the full cost of repairs and replacing items damaged.
  2. Waterproof the basement:
    1. Use a waterproofing compound to seal the walls of your basement.
  3. Build barriers:
    1. Use sandbags to create flood walls to prevent or reduce flow of water into your home.
  4. Install check valves:
    1. These valves close to prevent the backward flow of liquid and prevent water from backing up into the drains in your home.
  5. Elevate:
    1. Keep your furnace, water heater, electrical panels above predicted water levels to protect yourself from costly home replacements.
  6. Clean:
    1. Clean gutters, drains and downspouts for proper water flow.
