Winter Flood Risks! [Infographic]

Usually when we think of flooding, we think of continuous days of Spring and Summer rain. Did you know that flooding can be just as common in the Winter, but with snow? Sure it isn’t an issue when the snow is coming down and creating a beautiful Winter Wonderland. But when it stops coming down and starts melting - it can easily become an issue!

Prevention is certainly key and in most cases, if it’s done before snow starts becoming a part of the forecast in your area, it shouldn't take much to ensure your home is prepared!

Here are some ways to avoid Winter flooding around your home:
