Tips to Avoid Water Damage and Flooding from Winter Storms in the Reno, Truckee and Tahoe Areas
So far our winter in the Reno, Truckee, and Tahoe area has been fairly mild. If you haven't already you still have time to plan for stormwater runoff. We all know the worst happens when we get a cold storm, lots of snow and then a warmer storm comes with lots of rain. The result, a lot of snowmelt and water runoff.
Stormwater runoff is one of the top causes of flooded crawl spaces, flooded basements, and flooded houses. You want to look around and ask yourself when it snows and or rains, or worse yet, snows than then rains, where is the water going to go?
Make sure all of your gutters are cleaned out and the water is going to flow away from your house. If you have sump pumps in a basement, make sure they are all in good working order and are ready to pump out the water.
We hope you never suffer a flooded crawl space or basement or home, but if you do call SERVPRO of Reno NW/Truckee/Tahoe Vista. We have been servicing the Reno, Truckee, and Tahoe areas for over 10 years and will take care of you and get you back to normal, ASAP!
