Why Opt for Temporary Flood Barriers for Homes?

  • Ease of Installation
    The company brings the cofferdam(s) to where you need to repel rising water. The tubes will suck on-site water to inflate the dam slowly and evenly. Once the dam is full, it will rest firmly against the ground and then repel any water penetration. The main advantage is that the cofferdams leave little or no footprint, which eliminates the concerns of altering the aesthetic appearance of your property.
  • Ease of Removal
    Temporary flood barriers are easy to remove when the area is no longer at risk. Our cofferdams, in particular, are deflated after the flood recedes. Once the barrier is removed, it leaves little to no footprint on the surroundings. Its portability and light-weight design means storing it is easy and if you move, you’re not abandoning your investment, because you can bring it with you.
  • Adaptable to Landscape
    Our cofferdams are available in a variety of designs. So, they can conform to a wide variety of property designs. If you have a wide area that you need to protect, Dam-it Dams flood barriers for homes are expandable to any length. The company will easily link them to cover an area. In terms of other dimensions, the dams are available in 1’ to 12’ in height, 2’ to 23’ in widths.
  • Do-It-Yourself
    There’s no need to hire outside contractors or additional assistance in order to set up or remove this product, due to its light-weight and portable nature. Though some assistance may be required, depending on the size of the dam needed, there’s no special training needed.
  • Durability
    Moreover, these barriers are made of industrial strength geo-textile materials that can endure treacherous climatic conditions and are puncture-resistant, and able to withstand tremendous levels of water pressure.

When Water Begins to Rise

  • When water starts to rise, even if you do have residential flood barriers, you should:
    Shut down your main circuit breaker to prevent any electrical mishaps.
  • Raise generator, fuel tanks, and other large immovable electrical-run units above ground level.
  • Unplug smaller electrical appliances to prevent electrocution.
  • Consider installing an exterior back-flow valve for sewage (such as a gate valve, which is stronger than the standard check or flap valve).
  • Move your rugs, furniture, and keepsakes to upper levels of the house. If that’s not possible, then make sure they are elevated off of the ground.
  • Apply water-proofing products on the interior to prevent water seeping through the walls of your home.
