Preparing for the Possibility of Flood Damages in Phoenix
While Phoenix on average gets significantly less water throughout the year than other parts of the country, this does not in any way imply that the capital city does not have the appropriate weather conditions to allow for flash flooding. In fact, over the course of the last several years, there have been numerous instances of this type of disaster happening to areas all across the city, but lower lying plains were hit the worst.
The problem with flash flood damage to your Phoenix home is that there is a very little warning to prepare for the incident adequately. In many cases, this has caused residents to do more to prevent this kind of home-life crisis by improving water diversion implements that exist all around the exterior of the house. When Hurricanes Irma and Harvey were sweeping across the southern part of the country, many in the city feared that whatever lingering torrential rains still due to head their way could cause these dire conditions for them or their neighbors.
Truthfully, preparing for such a disaster is often easier said than done. Our SERVPRO professionals can help you to inspect the areas of your house that are more prone to experiencing water damage and help you to determine what might need to be repaired or replaced for the water to stay outside of your home (even in the event of forceful flash flooding).
Many people did not even realize that our SERVPRO team is available for smaller tasks like this, offering up our advice and expertise to keep your entire home safe and avert a potential crisis. Much like our emergency response team (that can be called at any hour of the day or night to help you in your most urgent times of need), you can also call us 24/7. We can have a professional on-site to begin assessing where the primary problem areas are and which components to thwart water penetration are not up to snuff.
Whether you would like your home checked for potential threats or you are currently dealing with flood damage already, you can always give SERVPRO of Litchfield / West Phoenix a call. We are available anytime at (623) 594-6033.
