10 tips on how to prevent flood damage
Raise it up
Sometimes, despite all precautions, water still gets in homes. In the event this does happen, you want to have your appliances and electronics out of harm’s way. You can do this by simply keeping them raised off the floor by at least a few inches.
Some washers and dryers come with pedestals that keep them off the floor, but you can also purchase the pedestals separately. If you’re handy, you can build a platform for appliances you want to keep dry in the event of flooding.
