Flood damage prevention
According to the National Flood Insurance program flooding is the most common natural disaster in the United States causing $2.7 billion in losses between 2001 and 2010. Flooding is not covered by most homeowner’s insurance policies so it may be necessary to buy a separate flood policy for your home.
Here are a couple of tips to keep water from entering your home during a heavy rain event:
- Fix foundation leaks that may allow water to enter your home.
- Make sure your roof is secure and protected.
- Clear gutters and drains
If water ever floods your home, getting someone on site as soon as possible is key to keeping the amount of damage to a minimum. SERVPRO of North Prince William county is ready to respond at any time and also provides a free assessment and estimate.
