As a homeowner, there are an abundance of home maintenance tasks that must be completed in order to receive peace of mind in your home’s well being. Before the rainy season arrives, we want you to be confident that your home will not become victim to water damage. There are a variety of ways in which you can maximize water flow to keep it out of your home, including:
- If you have been noticing drainage problems, double check to make sure that your water drains away from the foundation of your home.
- Cluttered gutters are one of the main causes of water back-up issues. It is impossible for your gutters to keep water away from the inside of your home when they are filled with debris and leaves. Make sure to clear them of all debris before the rain arrives.
- If your downspouts are not directed away from the foundation of your home, you run the risk of water seeping into your home and weakening the foundation. If need be, install extenders that will divert the water away from your home.
- Do you ever notice water accumulation in your basement? This may call for the need to install a sump pump with a backup battery. This clever device will divert water from your basement back outdoors. If you already have a sump pump, make sure to have it inspected before the New York rains get there!
