Protecting your home against flood and water damage is something every homeowner must know about. Here are some tips that will help you prevent floods and leaks:

  • Find out how much rain your area receives on a monthly basis so you can make appropriate preparations
  • Prevent sewer lines from backing up by installing back flow valves or stat pipes
  • Install flood shields or built-in barriers for basement windows and doors
  • Keep electrical appliances in higher places – it will make them easier to salvage these if flooding occurs
  • Install and maintain a sump-pump system
