ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning and Restoration provides water damage restoration and water cleanup in Exton and West Chester, PA
The first day of spring is less than a month away, and after such a harsh winter in the Exton, Norristown, Westchester, Lansdale, and Newton Square areas, it would be nice if Mother Nature would give us a break. Unfortunately, the warmth of springtime means snow melt, which can result in flooding. At ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning and Restoration, we want to remind you to prepare for possible springtime flooding. If you experience flooding this spring, our qualified technicians provide water damage restoration in your time of need.
No matter how much you prepare, flood waters are powerful and can be unstoppable. That’s why it’s important for you to make sure you have flood insurance for your home. Don’t assume your insurance policy covers floods. Most standard homeowner policies do not cover flood or water damage. Check with your agent and make sure you’re covered.
Have a Plan
Do you have an emergency family communications plan or an emergency kit? An emergency kit has enough supplies, food, and water to last your family for at least 72 hours. You also need a plan for communicating with your family if there’s an emergency. You can download plans from www.ready.gov.
Protect Your Home or Business
Here are some other things you can do to protect your property:
• Ensure that the electric panel, water heater, and furnace are adequately elevated if you are in a high-risk area for floods.
• Install check valves. This will keep water backup from seeping into your drains.
• If you can, build barriers to prevent flood water from entering your property.
• Use waterproofing compounds to seal the walls of your basement.
