Seven Products You Can Buy to Prevent Water Damage

Posted by at 10:15 AM in

Your home is your fortress and while your four walls and roof can usually keep everything out, water sometimes has a sneaky way of making its way in. Our team of professionals can always help you restore your home after water damage, but we also have a list of products that you can use to prevent damage from ever happening.

Check out these seven products that can help you prevent water damage in your home:

Water alarms: These are small devices that can be placed near appliances, water heaters, or in areas where water is likely to leak. If water is detected, the alarm will sound, alerting you to the problem so you can take action before it causes damage.

Water shut-off systems: These are automated systems that can turn off the water supply to your home if a leak is detected. They can be installed at the main water supply line or at individual appliances such as washing machines or dishwashers. These are especially important if your family spends extended time away from your home.

Sump pumps: If you have a basement or crawl space that is prone to flooding, a sump pump can help remove water and prevent damage. They can be installed with battery backup systems to ensure they continue to work even during power outages.

Water-resistant coatings: These coatings can be applied to walls, floors, and other surfaces to help repel water and prevent damage from moisture. These coatings are perfect for garages and sheds!

Gutters and downspouts: Properly installed gutters and downspouts can help direct water away from your home's foundation and prevent water damage. Make sure your gutters and downspouts are in good condition after winters or big storms.

Sealants: Sealants can be used around windows, doors, and other areas where water can seep in to prevent leaks and water damage.

Drainage systems: If your home is on a sloped or hilly property, a drainage system can help prevent water from accumulating around your home and causing damage.

It's important to remember that while these products can be effective in preventing water damage, regular maintenance and inspections are also necessary to ensure they are working properly. Call our team of professionals today if you suspect you have water damage in your home!
