Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration


4/25/2018 (Permalink)

Flooding can happen anywhere. Are you prepared?

According the National Weather Service (NOAA), “Approximately 75% of all Presidential disaster declarations are associated with flooding.” NOAA lists the most common flood hazards in the United Sates as:

  • Flash Flooding
  • River Flooding
  • Strom Surge and Coastal Inundation from Tropical and Non-Tropical Systems
  • Burns Scars/Debris Flows (Caused by wildfires)
  • Ice/Debris jams
  • Snowmelt
  • Dry Wash (Caused by heavy rainfall in dry areas)
  • Dam Breaks/Levee Failure

Just because you haven’t experienced a flood doesn’t mean you won’t in the future. In fact, 20% of all claims paid by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) were for policies in low-risk communities. ON average, floods cost $3.5 billion in annual losses in the U.S., and commercial flood claims average more than $75,000 (NFIP).
