When bad weather is forecast, then the potential for flooding comes along with it, usually. If a flood warning is forecast, then local businesses take steps to protect themselves against the damage that floodwater brings. Traditionally, this has always been done by the amassing and positioning of sandbags. There is a better solution though – flood protection using inflatable cofferdams.
Learn All About Flood Protection Using Inflatable Cofferdams From Dam-It-Dams
Flooding is much more dangerous than people seem to be aware of. Some people seem to think that flooding is nothing more than a temporary inconvenience. In truth, flood water is horrible stuff, probably filled with contaminants, chemicals, dirt and debris. It can take a business years and millions of dollars to recover from a flood, and many simply do not recover at all.
You can help prevent your business from being added to the list of businesses that were forced to close after flood damage by investing in flood protection using inflatable cofferdams from Dam-It-Dams. When a flood warning is issued, then the barrier can be put quickly into position and then inflated by having water pumped into it. When it is fully inflated, the cofferdam forms an impenetrable barrier that is sturdy enough to keep any flood waters at bay.
The Advantages Of Using Inflatable Cofferdams For Flood Protection Over Other Methods
- Easy To Install – The installation of an inflatable cofferdam is relatively straightforward. Just place it where it needs to be and inflate! Much simpler and quicker than hauling a large number of sandbags into place.
- Portable And Reusable – If you are in an area where flood warnings are common, then you can easily store your inflatable cofferdam ready for when it is next needed. Once sandbags have been contaminated with flood water they cannot be used again, and indeed have to be disposed of in a manner that follows legal guidelines.
- Very Versatile – Because they are flexible, cofferdams can be ‘molded’ to fit any shape or situation, and a number of cofferdams can be fitted together to create a barrier of any length imaginable.
- Environmentally Friendly – Sandbags become toxic once exposed to flood waters and need to be disposed of by an environmental agency. An inflatable cofferdam can be used time and time again.
