Stopping Storm Damage Before It Starts

2/3/2021 (Permalink)

Rain showers can lead to flooding conditions in Southeast El Paso. Follow our tips to help reduce any possible flooding to your home or business.

Watch for Pooling Water 

As it rains look for places around your property where water pools, and channel it away from buildings. Make sure gutters and downspouts are clear of debris and they are directing water as intended.

Maintain Sump Pump 

If you have a sump pump, check to be sure it is operational before water starts rising. Consider a back-up generator to ensure your pump works when you need it most. 

Raise Storage Goods 

Try to keep as few items as possible off the floor. Even small floods can cause large amounts of damage to your items. 

Shut Your Power

As rising water approaches the level of electrical outlets, you risk having a live current flow through all the water. Cut the power if you can safely do so without standing in water. Otherwise, evacuate and contact an electrician.

Consider Flood Insurance 

Homeowner's insurance will not cover floods; so it is recommended to purchase it separately. Flood insurance will provide you the means to respond to a catastrophic flooding event. 

Preparation is Key

Prepare in advance with a SERVPRO® Emergency Ready Profile® (ERP). Our convenient mobile app stores all your utility and emergency response information in one place, so you can access this information from your smartphone or computer.

When a flood happens, you need to act fast to dry out any wet items, particularly structural materials like walls and flooring. Call SERVPRO® of Southeast El Paso to extract water and make it “Like it never even happened.”
