Flooded Basements Possible Next Week
Hello friends, we all have been hearing and seeing the devestating news about the widespread flooding in Houston, and if you have ever been in a water damage situation, you can feel their pain. Next week in Columbus and the surrounding areas, we are looking like several days of rain--not like Houston, but it may be enough to give sump pumps and drains a hard time to do their jobs. Do you have a finished basement? If so, you may want to take some precautions to keep from having your items ruined. First, watch the weather and if you are in an area where they are talking about "training rain" or high winds (power outages), then you should take notice and be proactive about moving your items off the floor or better yet--totally out of the basement. If that is not feasible, then do as much as possible. If no water enters your basement, then great, but if it does, then you will have saved some of your items.
