8/31/2021 (Permalink)

While it’s less common to experience flood damage in your home or business in Lompoc, there is still a risk that it could happen on your property. If you ever experience flood damage, there are action steps you can take to protect your property before a restoration professional like SERVPRO of Lompoc responds.

Secure the Property:

  • Contact local emergency officials, if the flood is a large weather event.
  • Secure main entrances to the building.
  • Alert your security company and alarm company of the situation.

Stabilize the Property:

  • Open basement or low-level windows to equalize water pressure on the building’s foundation and walls.
  • Begin water damage mitigation steps only if local emergency officials deem the structure safe to enter. 
  • Notify your insurance agent or Risk Manager to determine insurance policy guidelines and steps to take.
