How to Help Avoid a Flood of Your Warren, OH Residence
As a Warren, Ohio homeowner, your residence is an especially important investment, and you want to keep it clean and safe. Unfortunately, summer in Trumbull County has something to say about this with a fair share of serve storms.
There must be a way to keep your home safe and be able to prepare for flooding, right? The answer is yes! According to FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) suggests these steps to understand how your residence may respond to a flooding event in the Warren, Cortland, Howland area.
- Determine Base Flood Elevation of your home- The BFE is how high the water is expected to rise during flooding in high-risk areas.
- Seal Crack and Gaps - Check caulking around windows and doors to make sure there is nothing cracked, broken, or missing. Fill any holes or gaps around pipes and wires that enter your building.
- Clean Gutters and assess drainages issues- Often a key factor for flooding.
- Get Flood insurance- Most homeowners insurance policies don’t cover food damage. Protect your investment by purchasing flood insurance for your home and contents, even if you do not live in a high-risk flood zone.
