Hesperia Homeowners Protect Their Properties During a Flash Flood Event?

6/11/2024 (Permalink)

A person turns off utilities before a flash flood event. We are leaders in flood damage restoration services in San Bernardino County.

Our local Hesperia/Apple Valley and Barstow/Twentynine Palms, Victorville teams have the training, equipment, and experience to restore flood damage. Flash flooding can occur suddenly and with little warning, putting your property at risk of water damage. Here are some last-minute actions you can take to protect your property during a flash flooding event:

  1. Move Valuables to Higher Ground: If you have time before flooding occurs, quickly move valuables, electronics, important documents, and irreplaceable items to higher floors or elevated surfaces to keep them out of harm's way.
  2. Clear Drains and Gutters: Remove debris from drains, gutters, and downspouts to ensure that water can flow freely away from your property. This can help prevent water from pooling around your home or business and causing flooding.
  3. Turn Off Utilities: If flooding is imminent, consider turning off utilities such as electricity, gas, and water to reduce the risk of electrical hazards, gas leaks, and water damage.
  4. Create Sandbag Barriers: If you have access to sandbags, use them to create barriers around doors, windows, and other vulnerable areas to help divert floodwaters away from your property.
