As much as we don’t like to think about it, floods are a very real possibility throughout the country. It doesn’t matter if you don’t live near a lake or other body of water – it’s easy enough for a severe rainstorm or burst pipe to do the job. According to FEMA, flooding is the number one natural disaster in America. Between 2010 and 2014, $42,000 was the average flood claim amount. Floods are serious business, and it’s important to have a plan to prepare for one. Don’t worry; ServiceMaster Fire & Water Clean Up has you covered. Keep reading to learn some helpful tips in the event you need water damage restoration in your New Holland, PA home.
- Family meetings are great way to discuss and address potential issues, including flood. And storm preparation. Talk to your children about floods and help them understand that it’s important to stay safe and follow the rules you set forth. When you do this, you leave less room for confusion and panic.
- Where will you go if your home is flooded? Have a plan. If your home receives severe water damage, you will need to find a place where you can stay for an indefinite amount of time. A friend, neighbor, or relative may be able to offer you a place to stay or your insurance policy may include hotel accommodations.

ServiceMaster Fire and Water Clean Up is experienced in pack-outs, making sure all of your items are packed and stored in the appropriate manner, so they may be returned to you clean, safe and as good as new once you are able to move back into your home.
