How Can You Protect Your Home From A Water Damage

You control every aspect of your home, from your decor to the temperature of your ac. Disaster and destructive damage is the last thing you would want to happen to your home. Water damage is especially destructive and can ruin a home within minutes. Although you can't control when or if you will have water damage, there are a few things you can do to minimize your risk. 

  1. Water Heaters: Water heaters will not last forever. Over time, corrosion will damage the tank and cause leaks. However, you can prevent this by installing a tray or drip pan under your water heater. 
  2. Groundwater infiltration: We recommend installing a sump pump to alleviate groundwater from flooding your home. Install an emergency generator so the pump will always be ready to operate at all times. 
  3. Sewer Back-Up: To prevent your sewer from backing up, make sure the main wastewater pipe is fitted with a backflow valve. This valve will need to be inspected regularly by a plumber.
