Preparing Your Business For Flooding

The fickle nature of Canadian weather only exacerbates the unpredictability of floods. And with so many areas susceptible to flooding, one unexpected severe storm can trigger widespread, damaging floods. Neglecting to prepare your property for possible flooding can sink your business. Stay afloat with solid preparation and a thorough flood plan.

Preparing For Floods

It is impossible to completely flood-proof your property, but flood preparation can lower your business' risk of damage and reduce business interruptions.

Begin your preparation by consulting your area's flood risk map.

Once you have assessed your risk, it is time to prepare your business. Buy and install products in advance that fortify your property against water. Consider the following precautions when building or remodeling:

  • Purchase flood boards for your doors that you can install when flooding is imminent.
  • Seal floors to prevent water seeping up through the ground.
  • Fit non-return valves to drains and both inlet and outlet water pipes.
  • Install high shelving where you can store items when flooding is inevitable.
  • Raise electrical sockets, fuse boxes and wiring at least 1.5 metres above the floor.
  • Keep a pump in the basement or lowest level to remove flood water.

In combination with your business' physical flood prevention measures, compile a list of useful telephone numbers, including your local authority and your insurer.
