Preparation is Key!
While it isn’t quite the hurricane season yet, it is still a great time to consider how well protected your home is. With floods being one of the most common natural disasters in the country, it is always a good idea to be prepared in the case that your home could be flooded. Here is a list of questions to ask yourself very quickly:
- Do you know your flood risk?
- Does your family have a contingency plan in place in the event that your home is flooded?
- Do you have flood insurance?
The main thing to know, is that floods do not just happen as a result of a hurricane, or because you live near a body of water. While certain factors can make you more likely to be at risk, it is good to know that floods can happen anywhere, at any time. They can be caused by a whole list of factors, and often occur suddenly, causing immense amounts of damage. This is why planning ahead in the event of a flood is the best idea, so that you know who to call and you can get a jumpstart of the long process of remediation. No one wants to consider the possibility of having their home involved in a flood event, but it is always better to be prepared for anything instead of caught off-guard.
