Flood Prevention Tips for Homeowners
In addition to heavy rains or other outside occurrences, leaks and other plumbing problems can also lead to floods in the home. Although you cannot predict a flood, you can take steps to prevent one. Talk to your Plano plumbing service about your flood risk and how you can protect your home from water damage.
Schedule a Plumbing Inspection
When was the last time you had your home’s plumbing inspected from top to bottom? Over time, wear and tear can put your plumbing at risk for leaks and other issues that may cause a flood. Having a professional plumber fully assess your home for flood risks can provide you with the information you need to make repairs and prevent a flood from occurring.
Install a Sump Pump and Alarm
A sump pump is a valuable flood prevention device that activates automatically in the presence of excess water. Sump pump systems are installed in the lowest point in your home—typically the basement—and pump water away from your home in the event of a flood. Installing a sump pump alarm will notify you when the water level in your home is above acceptable limits.
