Stay Safe During A Flood

With all the flooding, hurricanes, thunderstorms and other natural disasters happening all over the world these days, it is impossible not to worry about ourselves, our family and our homes. While we cannot avoid these natural disasters, we can prepare for it to ensure that our homes are kept safe.

SAFEGUARD ALL ELECTRICAL AND CLIMATE SYSTEMS
Be aware of your area's expected flood levels and be sure to raise your sockets, wiring, switches and circuit breakers at least one foot above the flood level. This is to avoid further injuries to yourself and the people around you.

DONT FORGET TO RAISE YOUR OUTDOOR EQUIPMENT TOO
Electrical power units and generators should never be kept on the ground. Be sure to anchor your fuel tanks, Air Conditioning units and power generators. Anything that can conduct electricity should be kept away from the floor.

ENSURE THAT YOUR WATER VALVES ARE WORKING PROPERLY
If your sewer system gets flooded, it can cause the sewage to back flow into your home. Nobody wants that, right? To make sure that flooding wont cause a back flow in your home, install a water flow valve. Gate valves come highly recommended!

RETROLIFT YOUR HOME
This is a drastic and very costly measure that requires your home to be raised on columns so that the lower level is above the expected flood levels in your area. Dry proofing and wet proofing your home is an option too, albeit a little expensive.

BEFORE AND DURING A FLOOD
Regularly clean your gutters, down sprouts and drains. As soon as the waters start to rise, move your furniture, electronics and other precious belongings to higher ground. Shut off the electricity and move your electrical appliances to a safer place.
