Practice Safety When It Comes To Flooding On Your Scottsdale Property
Monsoon season is just a few months away and according to the National Weather Service in Phoenix, we are due for a very favorable monsoon season with either near or above-average rainfall chances. With the monsoon season typically beginning in June, SERVPRO of Scottsdale would like to prepare you for what to do when it comes to flood safety, should you ever find yourself in a flooding situation.
Do Not Enter A Moving Flood
If you are on the roadways and you see a flooded road ahead, stop and turn around. It only takes about a foot of water for it to sweep your car away. If you are out and about, never walk or wade into moving waters as it can easily sweep you off your feet. You also never know what chemicals or biohazards could be lurking beneath. You also want to stay out of water during lightning storms as electrical currents traveling in the water can be very dangerous and you run the risk of being shocked.
Obey Emergency Response Crews
Follow the instructions of emergency crews such as first responders and local authorities as they exist to help you and keep you safe. This means following the commands on roadways such as avoiding flooded roadways.
Respond To Water Damage Right Away
If your property is affected by flooding caused by heavy rains, take action right away. Once your property is deemed safe to enter and the risk of electrical shock has been removed, call SERVPRO of Scottsdale. The longer you leave it untreated, the higher the potential you have of mold growth and more extensive damage occurring.
