Protecting Your Property from Natural Floods

If your home or business is in an area prone to flooding, or at risk of flooding in case of a hurricane or natural disaster, you should take all steps available to protect your property. This includes sandbags and other DIY protective barriers, as well as relocating valuable items to places unlikely to be affected.

Risks of Natural Floods

If you do experience a major flooding incident — and these are becoming more and more common — how you react can make all the difference. One of the biggest mistakes people make is going back into a flooded property while the electricity is still connected, risking electrocution. Floodwaters also pose a number of biohazard threats because of the bacteria, filth, and chemicals that get released into the rising waters. Flooding often leads to the displacement of animals, reptiles, and insects, some of which may be hazards to people or pets.
