Preventing Stormwater from Entering your Home
During periods of rainfall, a storm leak can cause a variety of issues for a homeowner, starting with water and mold damage. Should the problem persist, you should hire a professional to inspect the structure for signs of storm damage. Below, we list several steps homeowners can take to prevent an initial storm leak.
- Inspect your roof for poor conditions. Damages should be repaired before the next storm.
- Seal all windows and doors to prevent moisture and water damage.
- Remove debris from your gutters. This will prevent stormwater from becoming blocked in the gutters, allowing water to flow to away from the foundation of your home.
- Inspect your drains and sump pump. Clear drains of debris and make sure that your system is working properly.
