Flooding is unfortunately a common occurrence that Floridians brace themselves for yearly. Living in flood zones requires a little more planning should an emergency arise.
Setting up a fully-functioning sump pump is crucial as floods often plague basements first. Be prepared for the worst and let Performance AC help protect your home from future flooding.
How to Protect Your Home From Flooding
Your home is your most significant investment—so why not do your best to protect it? Preparing for flood damage is one of the most beneficial things you can do for your household, especially if you live in areas that notoriously flood.
Learn how to prepare for the worst with our three best flood prevention tips.
Elevate All Electrical Components
If your electrical components are less than 12-inches from the ground, you need to schedule a service with our team to elevate all sockets, switches, and wires. Electrical components should be elevated twelve or more inches from your basement floor to reduce the risk of electrical hazards during a flood.
Waterproof Your Basement
If you do happen to have a basement, the investment of waterproofing it is well worth the cost. When it comes to basement flood prevention, precautions such as setting up a sump pump and backup generator can save you thousands. Basement flood sump pumps drain any excess water in your basement, preventing damage from floods. Contact our team to schedule a flood sump pump service or installation.
Our team also installs generators to protect your home from harmful power surges and outages. Book your free in-home evaluation today.
Move All Furniture & Valuables
The last thing you want to discover is that your family memories and photos were destroyed due to water damage. Floods wreak havoc on furniture and valuables, so it’s important to move your assets to a safe zone free from potential flooding. Placing them on the second floor or in an elevated space for example is a good way to keep your valuables safe in case of a flood.
