floodFloods can occur anywhere it rains, so do not think that your home is an exception. You should be prepared when you hear flood warnings. Here is a list of things you need to do.

Now

-Emergency supply kit: food, water, batteries, flashlights, backup phone, radio, medical supplies (daily medications, bandages, etc).

-Be attentive to flood warnings and announcements.

-Family plan: know how your family is going to get in touch with each other if you are not all together at the time of a flood. Do you have an evacuation plan? What if the roads are not drive-able? Where in your home will your family gather for safety? Keep your emergency kit in this area of your home.

-Construct barriers: Seal walls in basements with waterproofing compounds. If there is a flood warning, board up your home to protect yourselves.

-Install check valves to prevent water from backing up your drains.

Upon Flood Warning

-Keep radio nearby to stay updated on flood progression

-Move to higher ground

-Determine if it is necessary to evacuate or if it is safer to stay home. If there is more than 6 inches of water, do NOT drive. 6 inches is enough to cause loss of control. A foot of water can cause your vehicle to be swept away.

Secure your home: bring in outdoor furniture and move important documents and items upstairs.

Most importantly, make sure you family members are safe. Documents and other material possessions can be replaced, but your loved ones cannot. Be sure you have enough food and water for 72 hours. Also be sure not to forget about your pets! They need food and water, too.

Florida’s Best Public Adjusters ARE the best. Our adjuster came to the house a few times to scope out the damage from a water leak and he spent quite a bit of time measuring the affected areas. The resulting claim amount was amazing. If we had handled the insurance company ourselves we would have come up way short. We highly recommend and trust Florida’s Best. Thanks Julian!

Receive a referral from a friend for this company. I was very pleased with the way they handled my claim and were able to resolve my issues without too much hassle from the insurance company. Their follow through is amazing. The follow up after things are resolved is exceptional.

Stephen got my denial reversed….had all to do with his reputation, and not the “luck of the Irish” on this St. Patrick's day! Him and his team are very professional, responsive and caring during the entire ordeal. If they are not on your team, you have chosen poorly.
