As of lately we have had quite a bit of rain, so I figured we would cover ways to help protect your home from rain damage. Below are some things you should consider to make sure you keep your house protected at all times. 


Review Home Insurance

Some areas may have seen an increase in potential damages due to flooding. It may be a good idea to consider if flood insurance is right for you. Not only that, but your insurance agent is you friend and work with them on ways to keep your coverage up to date. Sometimes external buildings are not covered in basic coverage, if you have a detached garage that is something I would make sure is covered in your insurance plan. 


Waterproof Your Basement

Your basement may be the first thing you notice when it comes to water damage. That is usually because they are the most vulnerable. You may start noticing leaks at basement windows or even cracks in the walls. That is why it is important to waterproof your basement to prevent these things from happening. 


Mold and Mildew Treatments

Mold and mildew like to grow in moist and wet environments. We all know that mold is very harmful to us and is not something we should be around for periods of time. If mold and mildew is found, it is a good idea to have professionals review the areas affected and decide which treatment route to go. 


Concrete Walls and Floor Repair

Concrete cracks are another common find when it comes to water damage. Eventually over time, homes concrete structures will begin to wear. Most of the time we see that in cracks. Making sure you keep up with wall crack repairs is key to preventing water coming into your home.
