Importance of Having Emergency Strategy to Respond to Flooding

Flood Services Canada , the Greater Toronto Area’s leading 24-hour emergency flood, fire and smoke damage restoration response service team, is addressing how important it is for homeowners to be prepared for unstable weather and to have an emergency strategy for responding to their home being flooded.

 “Being prepared means a homeowner verifying with their insurance company which types of water damage they’re covered for, how much they’re covered for, and having the number to an emergency flood cleanup service on hand,” says Chad Vanvari, president and owner of Flood Services Canada. “People never think it can happen to them until it does, so preparation is always essential.”

 Vanvari explains that Canadian homeowners really need to pay particular attention to the recent history of unstable weather. He cites the flooding in Alberta just a couple of months ago that caused so much water damage and forced people to evacuate their homes. More recently, the flash flooding that occurred in the last few days in parts of Scarborough and much of Burlington has resulted in numerous flooded basements.

 ”The first thing homeowners need to have in place is an insurance plan that would cover at least some of the water damage,” Vanvari notes. “Some insurance policies will cover the cost of staying in a hotel, but for those that don’t, homeowners need to plan for staying with friends or family if their homes were hit with flooding and water damage.”

 He adds that having the contact number for a local emergency flood services company will save valuable time in the cleanup process. Flood Services Canada provides flood cleanup services across the GTA and has a proven record in the flood and water damage industry.

 “At Flood Services Canada, we have extensive experience and the technology and equipment to respond to any flood cleanup,” Vanvari concludes. “We can thoroughly clean water damage due to floods and have expertise in catastrophic storm response.”
