Heavy rain caused flooding in street, water swirling around storm drain Don't let flooding weigh down your home. Call SERVPRO of Lakeland to get the restoration process started!

Water damage is a regular concern in the Lakeland community, especially when a hurricane or storm rolls through. While Florida living has its advantages, it also exposes us to the formidable forces of Mother Nature.

Whether it's a thunderstorm unleashing torrents of rain or a fierce hurricane battering the coast, flooded basements and homes are common outcomes.

Preparedness is key to safeguarding your family during such events.

Ensuring Family Safety

Fortunately, hurricanes and coastal storms typically provide advance warning. Prepare promptly upon receiving news of an impending storm. Secure outdoor furniture, grills, and propane tanks, and park your car in a garage or carport nightly. It’s always a good idea to tidy up your yard to minimize potential hazards.

Inside, you should gather essential documents and delicate belongings and relocate them to a safe area. Don't forget to check your sump pump's functionality and seal storm shutters tightly before the storm hits land.

After the Storm

Until floodwaters recede, prioritize your safety by staying inside. If you’ve evacuated, wait for authorities' clearance before returning home, and exercising caution when you do enter the building. Strong storms can cause extensive damage to structures and surroundings.

Navigate your home cautiously, mindful of potential hazards like damaged flooring and protruding nails. Following an initial assessment, call us promptly to get started on flood restoration.
