Taking care of your home requires time and effort that will keep it in great conditions. However, there are many atmospheric conditions and other unexpected emergencies that can damage your house. 

At Zott Construction in Stormville, we already talked to you about how to protect your house from flooding - although there are some places, like your basement,  that due to their location require special attention. For this reason, we will givel you a few tips to keep the water out of your property. 

Gutters & Downspouts

It all starts with this simple, yet often neglected detail. Use a ladder to remove all the debris from your gutters and check that your downspouts are draining the water properly - to avoid overflow, remember that your downspouts shouldn’t be connected to your foundation or sanitary system.

Outside your Home

Another thing you can do to prevent floods is sealing cracks on walls, doors and foundation. Think about installing window wells and remember to cover them during the storm. 

Plumbing

Understand how your drainage system works - you can hire a licensed plumber to help you, remember that regular checks are important to avoid basement floods. Maintenance is also fundamental; avoid pouring fats and grease in the drain and never flush items that can clog your plumbing.  

Flooded?

If you are in an emergency situation, contact the local authorities immediately and reduce the use of household water. Don’t go into your basement unless you are sure it’s safe -  the water may be polluted and you may be exposed to electric shock injuries. Also, think about getting flood insurance. 

These simple ideas can help you to prevent many future problems. If you are in an unlucky situation, remember that at Zott Construction, we are always ready to help you in a responsive and efficient way. 

Our technicians are highly trained to handle this emergency - from extracting the water to dehumidification. For these and many other reasons, think about us next time you are looking for property restoration in Stormville.
