Tips to Help You Prevent Leaks

Floods, burst pipes and water leaks can be frustrating. Fortunately, there are ways to protect your home by preventing leaks and water damage before they begin. Here are a few tips to help you prevent water leaks in your home.

Tips to Prevent Leaks:

  • Clean Your Gutters – Clogged gutters are a huge source of water leakage in many homes – especially during rainy seasons and colder months! Excess debris can block the passage in the gutters, forcing the water to drain through your roof and into your home.
  • Check Your Water Pressure – High water pressure puts more strain on your pipes. Overtime, this can cause your pipes to wear down and start leaking. Turn down your water pressure to prevent pipes from overworking.
  • Check Your Basement – Basements are common places for storage, as well as appliances like washers and dryers. They are also susceptible to leaks. Check your basement periodically to keep leaks from flooding your basement.
