Flood Restoration Checklist: Carpet Drying Auckland

The Mitigation Phase

Before a flood, there are actions that you can take to diminish damage:

  1. Have a professional assess your property for high-risk areas. Identifying these low lying areas gives you an indication of where sandbags will be helpful. This is to prevent flooding on your property.
  2. Make sure fuel tanks located above ground are well anchored. This will prevent them from floating away in the event of a flood.
  3. Consider dry or wet floodproofing your property.
  4. Dry floodproofing prevent floodwaters from entering a building.
  5. Wet floodproofing allow waters to enter the building but minimizes the damage to the interior.
  6. Install flood warning systems to notify the building’s occupants of potential danger.
  7. Consider purchasing a generator for outdoor use only. Keep generators away from air intakes into the building and do not use them in any attached building, such as garages.
  8. Install check valves in sewer traps or catch basins to prevent the unwanted backflow of sewer water up through the trap, while permitting the downflow of water through the trap and into the sewer.
  9. Develop a plan of action in the event of a flood and make sure all of the property’s occupants are informed of the procedures.

  • Stock up on clean water and other necessities.
