SERVPRO of Newton Wellesley Helps Prepare for a Flood
There are several ways to prepare for a flood, though it might not seem likely that you can fully prevent it. Here are a few ways to prepare for a flood:
- Visit FEMA's Flood Map Service Center to know the types of flood risk in your area. Also, make sure to sign up for your community’s warning system.
- Purchase or renew a flood insurance policy. It can take up to 30 days for a policy to go into effect so allow plenty of time.
- Make a plan for your household that includes what to do, where to go, and what you will need to protect yourselves from flooding. Make sure to be aware of evacuation routes.
- Keep important documents in a waterproof container. Protect your property by moving valuables to higher levels. Also, consider a sump pump with a battery.
