How to Reduce Damage Sustained During Flooding

Environment,Family & Parenting,Home Improvement
You can use Home Flood Barriers to help reduce the quantity of damage you sustain in a flood. They can help to keep water from entering your home, and can give you a layer of defense when a flood happens. Many of these can be put into place as they are needed, and therefore do not have to ruin the beauty of your home.


One of the main areas you want to protect is your doors. These often are the weakest part of the house during a flood. You can choose from many types and styles of barriers to keep the water out. You will need to determine the type you want based on your physical capabilities, the amount of time it would take for you to implement them, and the flood danger itself.

One of the most airtight forms for a door is having a gasket placed on the door. Many times these can be used and allow the door to still open and close. These gaskets can be inflated with a hand or foot pump or a portable air compressor. These are often watertight and show no signs of being in place and can cover the whole door. You may also opt for a watertight door instead. While they will minimize the water from getting in, they are not as effective as the previous one and the gasket will not be as tight fitting, but they will often be less noticeable.

Also offered are external barriers that you can place in front of your door. You can choose to have the frame affixed to your house for quick installation of the boards, or you can get one that does not require the frame. These will not cover the whole door, and often will only come up no more then halfway but are available in many widths for ease of assembly.

If you have a garage attached to your home, you should also consider getting Home Flood Barriers for that location. Many of the same barriers used on doors can be placed in front of the garage door as well. You may also find that you would like to protect your walkways and using a removable barrier can help stop flood waters from rising as high.

Glass Barriers

Windows can also be protected with a glass flood barrier. When they are used, these windows offer a flexible solution that will not shatter under the water pressure, making your home safe from broken glass during the cleanup. These do allow for some water to enter through the frame, so they are not considered watertight.


Aluminum barriers can also be a great defense against flooding. These are plates of metal that have a welded frame which are assembled to cover the entire perimeter of the house. While these give the best, and most, protection to your home, they are also cost prohibitive to most people, and the installation can be extremely difficult.

You can effectively use barriers to decrease the amount of damage your home sustains during a flood. While they cannot prevent all the water from gaining access to your house, Flood Shields can greatly reduce the amount that gets in. Many of these can be installed simply and quickly which can help decrease the cost of repairs later.
