Precautions You Can Take to Prevent Floods in Your Home

Even though you probably have homeowner’s insurance, the priceless value of memories and antique heirlooms is irreplaceable. At all costs, you’ll want to protect your home as much as you can against potential flooding, whether that flood comes from a torrential downpour or a burst pipe.

Consider which water valves to turn off

If you’re leaving for a weekend or for a more extended period, you might want to consider turning off your main water shutoff.

If you don’t want to turn off your water completely when you leave, you can always consider shutting off the following appliances to reduce your home’s risk of flooding:

  • Since toilet fixtures often are the most frequent to break, turn off the supply valves to the toilet
  • Turn off the water to your washing machine or regularly replace the hoses
  • Cut off water to the sinks that will not be used while you’re away
  • Have someone watching your home, taking a quick look at everything once a day while you’re away to make sure everything is functional.

The possessions you have collected in your home are valuable to you, and you don’t want to see them ruined. Taking these precautionary measures will help to keep your mind at ease when you leave town for a quick getaway.
