If you want to be safe, take a look at this article. 

Things to do to protect your basement from flooding

  • Take care of your landscape and yard.

We always forget that our yard might contribute to water and flooding issues. The shape of the flower bed and the yard being slope, can pool up the water around the house and this water will find its way in and cause trouble. You either have to find the right level for the land or yard to not be dangerous or you have to install drains. 

  • Gutters and downspouts need to be cleaned once in a while.

If you want the water from rain and storms to not pool up around your home foundation, an essential thing you should do is clean and maintain the gutters and downspouts. Make sure they are properly positioned so the water flows freely. 

  • Inspect and repair cracks on the foundation.

To prevent water damage and flooding, visually inspect from time to time the basement, and foundation, for any cracks or openings and fill them. These cracks can act as an open door for any water around the house to enter inside and make a mess. 

  • Inspect sewers and the septic system.

Skipping the inspection of sewers and septic systems on a daily basis is a perfect way to invite catastrophes inside your home. As the maintenance lacks, clogs, sewer backups, and overflows tend to happen. 

If you own a house, take care of it so the house takes care of you.  Facing water damage brings other things like structural damage and mold growth, which is a pain by itself. It’s true, it is not an easy journey so make sure you keep an eye on the small thing too, so you can avoid bigger problems.
