Prepare for the Rain

8/8/2020 (Permalink)

Can you guess which natural disaster is the most common in the U.S.? If you guessed rainstorms, you would be correct! Heavy precipitation can result in a high amount of free-flowing water, causing disastrous events such as flash flooding, mudslides, and overflowing dams.  

There are several action items you can consider that can protect your home from heavy rain flow:

  • Regularly inspect your home for any leaks (even the smallest ones can quickly become an issue)
  • Install roof protection, such as a rubber roof underlayment or a waterproof barrier to guard against water intrusion
  • Double-check with your insurance agent that your plan covers your home for floods
  • Rinse & brush out your rain gutters and/or drainage systems

Driving in hazardous conditions also places you in immediate risk, so here are a few tips for driving in the rain:

  • Leave plenty of room between you & the car in front of you
  • Drive at a decreased speed (this will help cutback the risk of hydroplaning)
  • Avoiding using cruise control (usage increases the risk of losing control of your vehicle)

Be assured that we understand life happens. If any of these events occur to you or a loved one, SERVPRO of Glendora/San Dimas is here to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Give a call today at (626) 852 - 9922 for an estimate or to learn more about our fire damage, water damage, storm damage, mold remediation, & COVID-19 disinfectant restoration services.
