Prepare For Flood Season!

6/5/2024 (Permalink)

As June begins, it's crucial to recognize that we're entering peak flash flood season. While flooding can happen any time of year, flash floods—rapidly developing within hours of heavy rain—are more common now.

At SERVPRO®, we know the severe impact flash floods can have on homes and businesses. We're here to provide essential information and precautions to help you protect your property.

Key points to remember:

  • Flash flood season peaks in June and July, with over one-third of total reports occurring during this time.
  • Flooding is the second deadliest weather event in the U.S.
  • Summer floods, including flash floods, are increasing globally, often taking people by surprise.


To protect your home or business from the damaging effects of flash floods, it's crucial to take proactive measures. Here are a few precautions you can implement:

  • Stay Informed: Keep track of weather alerts and warnings in your area. Stay connected with local news channels and follow updates from the National Weather Service.
  • Develop an Emergency Plan: Create a comprehensive plan for your family or business, including evacuation routes, emergency contacts, and essential supplies.
  • Secure Valuables: Move important documents, heirlooms, and valuables to higher ground or elevated areas to minimize potential water damage.
  • Install Flood Barriers: Consider investing in modern flood control solutions such as flood gates. These devices are easy to install and provide effective protection against floodwaters.
