Preventing Water Damage Caused By Flooding 

In St. Matthews, we are suspectable to heavy rains during hurricane season. These heavy rains will often be causing flooding, which can lead to damages occurring on your property. Living in St. Matthews, it’s important to know how to prepare your home for a flood and prevent water damages.

If your home is suspectable to floods, we suggest installing foundation vents to allow the water the flow through the home then safely exit the property. We also suggest installing sump pumps in areas that are susceptible to standing water. The pump will extract the water from the area and pump the excess water out and away from the home.

Adjust the gutter downspouts to point away from the home. If the spouts are not pointing directly away from the home the rainwater will drain directly into the foundation of the home. For extra precautions, we suggest adding an extension to the downspout to ensure the water is draining as far away from the home as possible.

Repair all cracks in the foundation with a sealant to ensure that water cannot enter the property. We also suggest sealing off any openings around windows of exterior door frames. By performing regular maintenance and repairs, you will significantly reduce the risk of water damage caused by flooding.

If your home is susceptible to excess water around the foundation, your yard may be graded to drain towards the home. If this is the case, we suggest re-grading the yard the drain away from the property. By completing this, you will significantly reduce the risk of future water damages caused by flooding.

First class service! My only regret was not calling them 4 or 5 hours earlier. Brian, Chris, and team were quick to assess the situation and work with me on a custom remediation plan. They explained everything, including pros and cons of the various options, clearly and completely. I hope I never need this type of service again. But, if I do, I know who to call.

First Response did a superior job of remediating water damage to my home. They were the second company that I called but the only one that I will call in the future. They take their jobs seriously and completely understand the meaning and value of delivering outstanding service. Not only did they correct the problems created by the first remediation company, but they went above and beyond to ensure that their work was done properly and expertly. Robert and Josh and the entire team earn my highest recommendations for service and expertise.

May 31, 2012 my husband and I were notified that we were being forced to move out of our home, at no fault of our own. Needless to say, this news caused a lot of stress for us! My employer, Robert Pulliam - President of First Response, understood the emotions I was going through and offered the company's services to assist in the process of moving. He also allowed me the time off needed to prepare for the move. My husband and I worked diligently over the next month to have everything packed up and ready to be moved out. On the afternoon of June 29th, Robert and a couple of our co-workers came to our home and moved everything out. It was such a tremendous blessing to have the extra man-power!! First Response has extraordinary leadership and support staff, and I am certainly proud to be part of such an amazing group of people!
