  • Make sure that your yard slopes away from your home.
  • Install a curtain drain around your home to keep water out of the basement.
  • Choose native plants that are highly absorbent for a rain garden around the perimeter of your property.
  • Consult with a local landscaping professional for ideas custom-fit for your yard and home.

What Does SERVPRO's Storm Damage Cleanup Process Entail?

Storm-related flood damages require additional care between the extraction of water and structural drying. Much like ground floods, storm flooding can bring in microbes that can spread through the air during drying without proper care. 

SERVPRO technicians can address these sanitary concerns with EPA-registered biocides, personal protection equipment, and proper containment measures, which can include temporarily blocking nearby vents to prevent microbes or mold from traveling through your HVAC system. Large spaces affected by water may require direct spraying with broad-spectrum sanitizing solutions.
