What Is Water Mitigation?
Water mitigation is structural and non-structural measures undertaken to limit the adverse impact of natural hazards, environmental degradation and technological hazards. In other words, help in reducing the cause of problem to prevent further damage.
How to Avoid Water Damage
Sometimes a flooding emergency is impossible to avoid. But there are many precautions that can be taken to decrease the presence of water and the damage water causes on your property. Below we have provided some basic ways to prepare for and prevent water damage.
- Do you have a basement? Keep your sump pump in good condition so that flood water gets pumped out during storms.
- Do your drains clog? Make sure you know the condition of your pipes. Broken sewer lines can lead to flooding.
- Is your roof in good condition? Regularly inspecting your roof is an important way to ensure that leaks do not form during storms.
- Does your property have good drainage and grading? Foundation damage and flooding issues are common in homes that do not have correct soil grading.
- Do you know the health of your appliances? Be sure to regularly replace hoses on your washing machine. We also recommend getting water moisture detectors to keep near your appliances so that you are alerted if moisture levels begin to rise.
- Do you know where your water main shut off is? Quickly shutting of your water pipes if they break can prevent serious damage from occurring.
- Are your hoses disconnected during the winter? Ice inside hoses can create pressure build up and ice block formations that can burst your pipes.
- What is the condition of your gutters? Regular cleaning can prevent ice dam formation. If your gutters overflow and create puddles, this can lead to foundation damage as well as water entry into the home.
