Happy Wednesday Everyone!

As the melting begins, it’s crucial to prepare your home for potential flooding and ensure a healthy indoor environment. Here are tips to help you stay ahead of the curve:

Sump Pump Inspection and Testing:

Test your sump pump to ensure it’s in optimal condition for handling spring thaw and spring showers. Clear any debris from the sump pit and test its operation. A functional sump pump is your first line of defence against water damage.

Proper Lid Sealing:

Check the seal of your sump pump pit lid to prevent debris, odors, and moisture from entering your home. A secure seal keeps your basement dry and protects against potential hazards.

Air-Tight Gasket Around Wires:

Seal gaps around wires or pipes entering your home’s foundation with an airtight gasket. This prevents the infiltration of gases, odors, moisture, and radon, ensuring a healthier indoor environment.

Battery Backup System:

Install a battery backup system for your sump pump to ensure it continues to function during power outages. This additional layer of protection can prevent basement flooding even when the electricity is down.

Smart Water Monitoring:

Invest in smart water monitoring technology like RESO to detect rising water levels in your basement or crawl space. Timely alerts allow you to take preventive action and mitigate potential flooding risks.

Following these spring maintenance tips and scheduling regular home inspections, you can minimize the risk of water damage to your home and maintain a safe and healthy living environment for you and your family.
