Mitigating Potential Flood Damage in Morgan Hill        

Contrary to what many might think, mitigating potential flood-related damage in Morgan Hill is sometimes possible.  Simply by taking a few actions before storms arrive, local residents can often limit the overall impact of floodwaters on their homes.  These measures predominantly work by helping to prevent stormwater from penetrating foundations/walls/roofs and affecting interiors.

As a highly skilled and experienced Morgan Hill flood damage restoration firm, SERVPRO knows some ways you might be able to reduce your losses during a flood event.  Over their years of providing emergency water damage services like waterborne biohazard remediation, basement flooding cleanup, and water damage repairs, our remediation professionals have discovered ways that you can protect your home.  Some of the preventative steps they suggest are:

  • Keeping gutters and drainage networks functional and clear of debris, having roofs periodically inspected and repaired as needed, and manicuring trees so that branches can’t damage structural elements and allow water to enter your home
  • Routinely checking your foundation for cracks and other issues, promptly repairing these problems, and sealing surfaces so that it is more difficult for floodwaters to enter
  • Properly maintaining windows and doors, ensuring that all seals are in good condition and that there are no cracks or other integrity undermining damage
  • Strategically placing sandbags around the perimeter of your property to impede the progress of approaching waters, thereby giving you more time to remove valuables and better secure your property, and potentially preventing your residence from flooding
  • Staying abreast of all the latest weather reports
  • Turning off all utilities and securing your property before evacuating

However, if flood damage is inescapable and you require assistance, your friends at SERVPRO of Morgan Hill/Gilroy are always here to help.  Call us at (408) 500-0657 whenever you’re in need.
