How to Prevent Rain from Ruining Your Home

How to Prevent Rain from Ruining Your Home
 
Recently, New York City has experienced day after day of rain in these early summer weeks. Although we are all wishing for the sun to finally come out, you should know some tips to keep the rain outside and prevent it from coming inside your home:
 
  • Have a professional clean your rain gutters once a year. This is one of the most important things you could do to keep the rain out of your house because a clogged rain gutter will redirect the rain toward the outside walls of your home, which can lead to leaks on the inside.
  • Cover any air vents that could allow water to seep into your home and cause a flood.
  • Make sure your windows are properly maintained. Go Pro Restoration & Maintenance prioritize proper window installation and maintenance to prevent leakages.
  • Schedule a roof inspection every five years. Any crack in your roof can result in a minor or major leak that can ruin your home during heavy rainfall. If you have a professional inspect your roof every five years, you will prevent spending more money when a major repair must be done in an emergency.
  • If you have a basement, have a professional plumber add a sump pump to your home. Go Pro also has a plumbing company that specializes installing sump pump in homes across New York City. A sump pump will automatically drain excess water during a flood so that it does not sit there and ruin the floors and walls in your home. A sump pump should also be inspected every few years to make sure it is working properly.
