With flood warnings at a high this year, take steps to protect your belongings from water damage.
Most households use the basement for storage. While this is a great idea, don't forget that basement flooding is always a risk....whether from an interior pipe leak or the spring run-off.
Steps to protecting your valuables:
~Keep valuables on pallets at least 6 inches off the floor.
Tip: most home improvement stores sell containers that are also fire-proof.
In other areas of home:
~Keep valuables away from water heater.
