Flood control can be a tricky dance when it comes to reducing or preventing detrimental flood waters in order to avoid property damage. For those with property located in flood plains or with nearby waterways known for breaching their banks, there are several benefits to one particular solution for flood prevention over the others.
Heavy rainfall or failed dams further upstream cause major headaches for property owners who wind up in the path of floodwaters. Flooded basements or ground floors lead to costly repairs that can result in debt at best and bankruptcy or foreclosure at worst.
To avoid these catastrophes, Dam-It-Dams provides a means of protecting your land and other real property from flooding without the need for major construction or changing the landscape.
Inflatable Cofferdams – The Better Option for Flood Protection
Many property owners may look to an old standby for keeping water from entering places it would cause damage. Sandbags have long been a classic solution for guarding against flood waters. Online retailers and home improvement stores alike provide access to ready made sandbags and this may seem like a good option at first.
The main problem with sandbags is that they are extremely labor intensive to both fill and install. The manpower and training required for the proper use of sandbags often makes them prohibitive as an effective method for flood control.
On the other hand, inflatable cofferdams from Dam-It-Dams make for easy and instant protection. Residential and commercial properties looking for a more immediate solution are wise to consider how the expandable and portable design of inflatable cofferdams make them the better choice.
The Better Option for the Environment
Not only are inflatable cofferdams available right away for fast delivery and installation in emergencies, but they also offer an environmentally friendly solution. Being portable and temporary, inflatable cofferdams leave minimal traces of their use on any property.
Draining and rolling the industrial strength geo-textile puncture resistant cofferdam makes for less material to deal with in general compared to other options. Their convenient design means they are also reusable—either on the same property or another site entirely.
There is no need to import soil for an earth dam that changes a property’s topography for flood protection. For an easy and affordable means of controlling water on your property, call Dam-It-Dams at 810-695-1695 or request a quote online today!
