To prevent flooding in the future, you can:
- Consult a plumber for repairs and waterproofing.
- Inspect your sewer lines for tree roots and blockages.
- Snake your piping annually.
- Check basement walls for any cracks or other damages.
- Seal basement window wells, vents, and exterior openings.
- Keep water away from your foundation by grading the landscape away from your home.
- Extend downspouts five (5) feet from your home’s foundation.
