There Are Numerous Ways You Can Safeguard Your Valuables from Flood Damage

North Dallas typically experiences flooding during its spring storm season. During this period, when winter is transitioning into spring, severe thunderstorms deluge the area with torrential rains and plague it with high winds and even hail. Often, this troublesome weather leads to flooding that can destroy your valuables and wreck your home.

Fortunately, North Dallas flood damage experts from SERVPRO can usually clean up and restore most flood-related damage. Our emergency water damage services technicians have successfully completed numerous water cleanup jobs, biohazard remediation efforts like sewage cleanup, and water damage repairs. Unfortunately, some of the most challenging things to remediate are household valuables such as important documents, expensive paintings, and irreplaceable family heirlooms.

Here are some best ways you can protect your valuables from flood damage:

  • Put essential documents and other valuables in waterproof safes to protect them in the event of flash flooding
  • Scan and upload necessary documents and photos to online cloud storage, so they are safe from local natural disasters
  • Disconnect electronic equipment, like computers, copiers, TVs, and gaming systems, from power supplies, put them in resealable plastic bags and airtight containers, and move them away from potentially flooded areas
  • Relocate any important possessions stored in the basement or first floor to higher levels of your home to protect them from rising floodwaters
  • Vigilantly monitor weather reports and be prepared to move furniture and your most valuable items to a safe storage place away from your home
