Protect your Property from the Hazard
If your property is susceptible to flooding, there are many flood damage reduction measures you can employ: 
  • Watertight seals can be applied to brick and block walls to protect against low-level flooding. 
  • Utilities such as heating and air-conditioning systems, water heaters and other major appliances can be elevated to higher floors in the structure or on raised platforms.
  • Temporary measures such as moving furniture and other valuables to higher floors or sandbagging exterior openings will also help. 
  • Elevating or relocating the entire structure may be a feasible option.
