Flood Damage FAQs

How Can Flood Damage Be Reduced?

Preparation is much easier than repair when it comes to reducing flood damage. Ensuring you take both short-term and long-term steps beforehand to reduce the risk of flood damage could provide vital protection if a flood were ever to happen. Short-term preparations are the things you can do when the potential for flooding is imminent, while long-term preparations are the more permanent changes you can make before any bad weather is in sight.

In the short-term, taking steps such as moving belongings from the main level to upstairs rooms, raising furniture off the floor, and using sandbags to block flood water entry points can be effective in minimizing damage. Long-term flood reduction measures can include improving land grading or slope, changing landscaping, installing water barriers and new drainage systems.
