How Can You Prevent Home Flooding This Spring?

April showers bring May flowers!  Is your home protected against melting snow and spring rains?  Here are a few tips to help you protect your home against flooding this spring.

Flood Prevention Tips:

  • Know Your Insurance Policies - If you know that your home is prone to flooding or you live in a high risk area, it's good to know your insurance policy and what is covered when it comes to flood protection.
  • Locate Shut Off Valves - Know where the main power electrical panel is in your home.  If you believe water is accumulating in your home, turn off the power.  Just make sure that you are not standing in water while you do so.
  • Install a Sump Pump - Protect your home with a sump pump.  Sump pumps will help remove water that has accumulated in your sump basin.  This will help prevent flooding in the basement of your home.
