Orange background with text and SERVPRO logo Here are a few ways to 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.

SERVPRO of Newton Wellesley is available 24/7 including holidays and weekends to assist you and help you with water damage. “Like it never even happened.”
