Preventing Water Damage During The Florida Seasons


Those who reside in South Florida know the power of the rain storms that come in off the water – especially during hurricane season. If your home suffers damages from water due to the excessive rain fall, it can be devastating – especially if proper precautions are not taken. So, if you are a resident of the sunshine state and want to save yourself the cost of damage repairs, there are some precautions you can take to prevent any flooding from entering your home. 


Check Your Roof

One of the easiest ways for water to enter your home isn’t through the front door or garage, but rather the roof. If you have any shingles loose on your rooftop, then you could be giving water a direct line into the wall cavity where it can sit and eventually create the perfect environment for mold growth. Now, if the shingles are secure, make sure they still look as they should – if they’re fading in color, it may be time to replace them.

Invest In Sandbags

Now, any Floridian is aware that Florida homes are built without a basement – while this is good because during hurricane season, our basements don’t turn into indoor pools, but all that water just sits on the main floor of the home. So, go out and purchase some sandbags and check the weather regularly because down here, it’s unpredictable and a rain storm can happen at any moment. Once you buy your sandbags, you want to lay them in front of your door and garage in the event of a storm or hurricane; this will help keep the water outside your home.

Upgrade Your Piping System

A lot of times, water damage is a result of not having a proper piping system installed. One of the ways to improve the drainage around your home is to install backflow vales or standpipes which improve your sewage line.

If Your Home Suffers Water Damage…

Invest in water removal specialists who can properly check your home for mold growth or damages to carpeting or other flooring. Water removal specialists are the ones who can efficiently clean your home and rid it of any mold spores that may have developed over the time the water has been festering in your home. Water damage can cause serious health risks, therefore it’s important that you take the preventative measures, and if you can’t defeat the Florida weather, call a company that can remove the water and restore your home.
