Be Prepared When Winter Storms Hit San Diego

Follow These Tips to Prevent Flooding of your home or business in San Diego.
SAN DIEGO - Dec. 3, 2014 - PRLog -- Leaky roofs, drenched rugs, damaged walls, warped flooring and destroyed furniture are just the start of what homeowners in San Diego and Southern California might be dealing with as winter storms begin bringing heavy rain to our parched region. Flooding can take place anywhere and be caused by heavy rains, serious storms, poor drainage, plumbing issues, and other water-related problems. The secret is to be prepared and take fast action when a flood disaster happens.

Gold Coast Flood Restorations offers these tips on how to be prepared prior to, throughout and after a flood:

Before the Flood

Check with an insurance representative about flood insurance for the house.
Keep rooftop gutters clear of debris.
Divert water away from known problem areas around your home.
Prepare a house stock of furniture and prized possessions in the home, consisting of information and images.
Put together a family emergency situation strategy and ensure everyone in the family understands exactly what to do.
If you stay in a high-risk flood location, prepare an emergency kit, consisting of insurance plan numbers and number, a modification of clothing for each relative, vital toiletries, mineral water and non-perishable food items, flashlights, batteries, blankets, emergency treatment kit, non reusable cleaning fabrics, bug spray, and enough money to last you a few days.
If you have a leak in your home, have it fixed immediately. Waiting to do repair services commonly results in flooding that causes structure or mold damage to your house.

During a Flood

Watch the weather for high quantities of rain in a short time duration or tropical storms headed your method.
Listen thoroughly to advisories, follow directions from regional officials, and leave if needed.
If you have a second floor or large attic, move special furniture, household pictures, area rugs, computers, televisions, artwork, and other expensive products to a higher level to keep them dry.
If flooding will reach your house, turn off the electrical power, gas, and water to your home. However, never ever touch electrical sources if you are standing in water.
Never walk or drive through high floodwaters.

After the Flood

Act quickly. Call Gold Coast Flood Restorations at 888-33-9243.
Report damage to your insurance coverage agent or company as quickly as possible to start processing the claim immediately so restoration process can begin.
Take photos of the damaged areas both inside and outside to document the damage and give to your insurance agents.
Never turn on the electrical power to your home up until a professional says it's safe to do so.
Be patient and never ever make use of a house vacuum to eliminate water since electrical shock can result, as well as damage to the equipment.
Let the restoration experts do the cleaning.

The number-one goal in a flooding disaster is for families to remain safe, For details on preparing for and dealing with a flood in your area, Call Gold Coast Flood Restorations at 888-373-9243.  Visit us at :
