Main Line Water Mitigation
Water flowing toward your house is never a good thing, and often you don’t realize how serious the problem might be until it is too late. The professionals at Naturescapes are very familiar with such issues and can typically tell just by looking at your property that water mitigation is necessary to avoid flooding. There are several ways to perform water mitigation that not only direct water away from your home but add something beautiful to your landscape.
If you suspect a potential problem, you should schedule a consultation. We’ll be able to stop water damage before it happens as well as transform your property into a gorgeous, natural space.
What is Water Mitigation?
Water mitigation is eliminating, preventing, or reducing the water damage in your home that might occur during a flood or storm. For us, this means using natural elements to absorb or redirect the water before it gets into your basement or slicks your outdoor pathways. We use elements such as dry stream beds and stone retaining walls to navigate water in a way that is both safe and visually appealing.
As mentioned before, we often do not realize we have water problems until it is too late. If your home has flooded and you’re unsure what to do next, follow these steps:
- Turn off all electricity to avoid shocking
- Stop the leak and identify the source
- Open windows and doors and turn on air conditioning to improve air flow
- Place tin foil under furniture legs to prevent staining
- Never stand in flood water
After you have the situation under control, you should contact your insurance agency and schedule a consultation with Naturescapes to avoid any future accidents. We’ll make sure your landscape is functional and complements your home instead of damaging it.
