Floods can cause serious damage and stress to you and your home – if you’re not ready. If you know floods and heavy rain are coming to your area, it’s best to prepare for the worst to make sure when the time comes, you aren’t left with a disaster area around your home.

Personal Inventory

This is a crucial step. A list of all your personal belongings are sometimes required by insurance companies when trying to make a claim and at the very least help keep track of what potentially could get damaged or lost. Take photos of each item and store the inventory safe – if written physically, keep it in a safe and if digitally, make sure there are plenty of backups.

Home Preparation

If you are lucky enough to have a good enough head start on preparing before the bad storm hits, get your home ready. Take down expensive decorations like art and perhaps remove furniture and in the worst cases where you know the flood will be bad, remove the carpet.

Even if you don’t have enough time for those big changes, you can unplug electronics that aren’t needed for weather updates and try to get things off the floor – such as putting washer and dryers on bricks to raise them above the floor. Turn off all water, electricity and gas before you leave the house before the flood.

Emergency Supplies

This is good for all emergencies, not just floods. Always keep a two-to-three day supply of food and clean drinking water, a first aid kit that includes any prescribed medication, flashlight, radio, cell phone, blankets and hygiene products.

We’ll help you prepare for the worst. For more information about Houston flood insurance, give Turrentine Insurance Agency a call at (281) 476-0557 today.
