Be Prepared For The Growing Danger Of Flooding

Dallas Flood Insurance

With the expansion of new buildings the land is beginning to experience an inability to absorb water and as a result the chance of flooding is growing, even if you don’t live near a flood zone. Expansion is a good thing but it can possibly impact your safety so it’s important to be prepared.

  1. Even if you don’t live near water you are still at risk of flooding. Flooding can be caused by hurricanes, storms, or even snow melting so make sure to use waterproof materials for building.
  2. Protect your electronics by raising them. Consider raising items like your washer, dryer, water heater, and anything electrically wired.
  3. Changing the way you landscape can keep you safe. Try using native plants or any kind of vegetation that will resist the erosion of soil.
  4. Protect your doors and windows by installing flood shields or barriers.
