Start Flood Proofing
If you find that your property is in a flood-prone area, consider these techniques to make your building as waterproof as possible.
Purchase Flood Insurance
Flood Insurance for a property in a high-risk flood zone is a must. Find insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program and purchase it through private insurance companies.
Go Green With Flood Prevention Landscaping
Protecting the inside of your business can also come from what you choose to plant outside. Native plants and vegetation can help prevent the soil from eroding and keep water drainage to a minimum. It will also allow the water to drain efficiently, keeping water from entering your foundation. You can also check the slope of your land to make sure that it is directing water away from your building.
Downspouts And Gutters
One of the most simple and easy ways to make sure that your commercial property or business is protected from seasonal Montana flooding is to check your downspouts and gutters regularly to make sure they are pointing away from your buildings. Make sure that they are clean of any debris that may cause them to overflow.
