How to Prevent Flooding This Fall

Cool fall weather is perfect for getting your home improvement projects out of the way before the holidays hit.  Here are a couple of tips to help you prevent floods this fall and keep your home comfortable through the end of the year.

Flood Prevention Tips:
  • Check Your Sump Pump - Do you have a sump pump in your basement?  Sump pumps help prevent flooding and keep your home and your belongings safe.  If you are planning any holiday getaways, make sure that you check your sump pump to make sure that it's working before you leave the house.
  • Clean Out Your Gutters - With the leaves falling more and more each day, you want to make sure that your gutters are clear.  Your gutters are responsible for letting water run away from your home.  When the gutters are filled with leaves, the water can become stagnant and on colder fall and winter nights, it can freeze and expand and damage your gutters.
