Tips to protect your home and property from water damage

house flood

Tips to protect your home and property from water damage:

  • Install a backwater valve which will automatically close if sewage backs up from the main sewer.
  • Inspect all plumbing for signs of cracks or leaks, and replace older plumbing.
  • Inspect appliances, especially washing machines and dishwasher hoses, and replace them with steel braided hoses.
  • Install water monitors that alert you if a leak occurs and will shut off the main water supply.
  • Find and seal any cracks in foundation walls and basement floor.
  • Install a sump pump with battery backup, check it regularly to ensure it is in working order.
  • Direct downspouts at least 6 feet away from your home's foundation.
  • Ensure your roof doesn't have loose or curled shingles.
  • If you have a septic system, have it pumped and serviced regularly.
