Watertown, SD (PRWEB) March 18, 2014

FloodSax Americas, LLC today announced that the FloodSax sandless sandbag has been awarded the 2014 IHA Innovation Award in the cleaning category.  Floodsax® is a self-activating sandless sandbag flood defense system for homeowners, business owners and governmental agencies in the United States. Floodsax uses a proprietary biodegradable polymer that absorbs water to form a sandless sandbag. The award is a recognition that FloodSax is more than just a sandless sandbag for flood protection, but a key part of every homeowner’s cleaning supplies. Used to absorb water and other liquids, FloodSax can protect valuable property and allow cleanup in ways that were never before possible or practical. Delivered as a flat one-pound sack, they absorb up to 45 pounds of fresh water in five minutes, forming a dense gel that blocks and redirects water, while forming to each other or adjacent structures for a tighter fit than traditional sandbags. Because they are stored dry, they are cleaner, lighter, more effective and easier to use in the places and times when sandbags are most needed.
