Property Tips for Heavy Rain
- Inspect your Roof - any cracks or breaks in your roof can leave your home vulnerable to water damage to the floors, ceilings, and walls. Additionally, if a moisture problem goes unaddressed mold is likely to grow. TIP: have your roof inspected regularly, fixing issues as they arise can help prevent a large cost down the line.
- Clean the gutters - any built up debris or leaves in your gutters may leave an opening for water damage concerns to your home. When your gutters are backed up the water that is normally stored inside of them, has nowhere to go. TIP: clean your gutters at least twice a year
- Check with your insurance - a comprehensive insurance policy that includes flooding insurance will come in handy in the event that your property is damaged as a result of a water issue
