Protecting Your Home from Water Damage

Posted by Sams Carpet Service | April 13, 2018 | Sams News

While April Showers will bring May Flowers, they can also bring big trouble for homeowners in Missouri.

Flooding can be a tragic experience for anyone but with a few simple steps and our phone number close at hand, you will be ready for the worst Mother Nature can throw at us.

  1. As the rains pick up and the weather warms, get outside and walk around your home.
    • Check gutters, drains and downspouts for debris.
    • Look for low areas around your foundation which may collect water. Try to fill these areas and slope away from the house.
  2. Check your sump pump and consider adding an inexpensive moisture alarm.
  3. Keep valuables and easily damaged items in your basement in plastic tubs as opposed to cardboard boxes.
