A year ago a rigorous storm brought a great deal of rain water to home. The flood damage from the storm was horrible, and i also needed to call a specialist to remove it and look after mold that did start to grow. I predict that heavy rain will return again this coming year, for ready because of it. I've taken precautions in order to avoid flood damage from happening to my house again.
I've created my personal sand bags by completing sacks with sand. The sand bags will become the first line of defense from your excess rain by blocking it on the ground so that it doesn't always have a chance to enter my property. When the sand bags fail, then I'll have to rely on my backup plan. I've bought a large wet vacuum to suck up the water if it reaches inside home.
The previous I'm able to have the water out of my house, the less probability of damage you will see. Time is really a major aspect in minimizing damage, which is the location where the wet vacuum comes in to play by creating an edge. Because the water is sucked within the vacuum, mold doesn't always have to be able to grow
