Can you guess what the number one natural disaster in the United States is? If you guessed floods, then you are correct. Floods cost Americans a lot of money every year, and most of the time we are not well-prepared for them. With over $3.5 billion in flood insurance claims filed every year it is clear that this is a serious problem. That is why we should all be proactive and prepare for storms or floods before they hit us. It can be overwhelming thinking about it, and you are probably asking yourself, “where do you start?” The answer is Quick Dam Flood Barriers.
These flood barriers are specially designed to have on hand before a storm hits so you are prepared and protected. They work just like sandbags with one major difference – they have no sand in them. The Quick Dam Flood Barriers are filled with a super absorbent powder that gels water. Once they start absorbing water they grow up to 3.5 inches high in about ten minutes. At that point they start to divert water, protecting anything behind them. By stacking three high you can create a sturdy 7-inch high barrier and they are available in 5ft, 10ft & 17ft for doorway and garage protection. If you need to, you can leave them in place for up to six months knowing that they are doing their job. You will feel better knowing you have them there and you are protected. And because the powder is non-hazardous and non-toxic you do not have to worry about any health risks.
