  3. Avoid buying cheap sump pumps.
  4. Rod your drains and sewer pipe every year, or so depending on your conditions
  5. Don't flush baby wipes, paper towels or feminine products
  6. Check your windows, door jams, and foundations for signs of water damage regularly.
  7. Regularly inspect gutters, downspouts, and window wells to make sure there is no blockage and proper draining
  8. Check anything with water supply lines for leaks and corrosion
  9. Make sure windows and doors are closed when it is raining especially those leading to the basement.
  10. Run a slow drip through your plumbing supply lines and into the drains during the winter to keep water moving, so as to prevent freezing of the pipes
  11. Keep your cabinet doors on outside walls that have plumbing supply lines in them open during the winter a little bit, because they can freeze even if the room is 70 degrees. Drafts and poor insulation can lead to plumbing supply lines freezing enough to break in an otherwise warm room.nn nnnnCall (866) 575-5814 for immediate professional help with your water, sewage, or mold damage needs in Harvey, Illinois!
