DO’S & DON’TS FOR FLOODS BY FLOOD SQUAD 1-800-749-7093
  
FLOOD DAMAGE
 
Floods happen - beside rivers, on the coast, in deserts, along city streets and behind protective levees. But you can take protective steps before the flood to  protect your home and family from disaster. Some things can and should be done immediately. Others require a licensed professional. However, each change you make will increase your home’s resistance to flood damage.
 
DO:
  
When there is risk of flood:
  
Clear drains, gutters and downspouts of debris and make sure your yard’s grading (slope) directs water away from the building.
  
Anchor fuel tanks. An unanchored tank can be torn free by flood waters, and the broken supply line can cause contamination, or if outdoors, can be swept downstream and damage other homes.
  
Buy and install sump pumps with backup power where needed. Regularly check to make sure they are working.
  
Cut off electrical service at the main breaker if the electrical system and outlets will be under water.
 
If you have time to hire a licenced plumber:
  
Raise electric components  (switches, sockets, circuit breakers and wiring) at least 12‰ above the projected flood elevation.
  
Place all appliances, including furnace, water heater and dryer on masonry blocks or concrete at least 12‰ above the projected flood elevation .
 
If you have time to hire a licensed plumber:
  
If flood waters enter the sewer system, sewage can back up and enter your home. To prevent this, install interior or exterior backflow valve. Check with your building department for permit requirements.
