Heavy Rainfall Predicted in Athens Georgia
The weather outside could be frightful this next week with all of the rainfall predicted. With the rainfall comes the potential for your house to take in water. There are several ways you can prevent this from happening and therefore preventing any damage to your home.
- Install Sump Pumps with backup power.
- Waterproof your basement and any connected entrances. (Cleaning gutters, storm drains, and slope water away from your home)
- Have a backflow valve or plug installed in your sewer connections to prevent sewage water entering your washing machines, bathtubs, and more. These would cause an overflow onto your floor.
- Create a plan for emergency. A list of thing such as disconnecting appliances, turning off gas lines, and even turning off your water.
