The Best Alternatives to Sand Bags

The image of a group of people passing sand bags furiously as the rain pounds down is probably as old as television itself. It has become the standard response when high waters threaten a home or business. Is there anything that does as good or even a better job than the sand bag for turning back water? Is there a product out there that is more effective, or at least easier to use? The following products show promise in man's long effort to turn back the tides and reduce flood damage.

Water bags. These items are filled with water instead of sand. They have the advantage of being filled up right where they go, so it isn't necessary to carry them great distances. Some of the products in this category are just a bit bigger than a sand bag, while others are much larger. These products tend be reusable and faster than sand bags, making them useful for avoiding flood damage in Lafayette, LA.

A Fence Barrier. This item can protect a large area and can be set up around the perimeter of a building. It is made of high-tech materials, including stainless steel and marine-grade batlic laminate. It takes a crew of workers to install it, can be deployed fast and is reusable. It does come with a large price tag.

A Fabric Bag. This item can be purchased at a hardware store and is inexpensive. You just spray it with water and the fabric absorbs the water and grows into a small barrier and serves as flood dams. It can be left out at all times and will swell when wet and shrink when dry.

Floods are common and impact businesses nearly every day. Finding the right solution, whether a sand bag, or another product can protect a company. A storm remediation franchise can also help your company combat the effects of a flood.
