If you are reluctant to move house but do not want to also get flooded. If this is the choice, what can be done is to get around and minimize the water that enters your home. How to? Here are tips from the experts:
Raise the living room
As a flood customer, the residents of the house would already know how much water is entering the house. Which rooms are often visited by floods? If the water is still low, below 50 centimeters, an effective step that can be taken is to increase the surface of the house to be taller. Raise the surface of the house above 50 cm. If funds are limited, you only need to raise the rooms that are affected by the flood.
Raise the surface of the terrace
Before raising the living room surface, the terrace surface also needs to be raised a few centimeters. From the terrace of the house to the living room is elevated by adding a few steps. The number of steps depends on the height of flooding that is often experienced by each occupant of the house. If it is less than 50 cm, three or four steps are sufficient.
Pay attention to the kitchen and stairs
Both of these exit access can prevent water from entering the house. Now the flood is below the surface boundary. So what is raised is only the room which allows water to enter from outside.
How about the other room? Other rooms do not need to be contested. Because, the surface of the living room and kitchen that has been raised can prevent the entry of water into other rooms, such as the living room (family room) and bedroom.
