    Flood-Proofing Your Home

    Flooding can happen anytime, anywhere. And damages are generally not included in your homeowners policy. But two devices can flood-proof your home: a backflow valve, and a sump pump.Both control floodwaters by redirecting them.A backflow valve directs overflow to an outside receptable - a sump pump directs overflow to a storm drain or well.Both of these should be installed by a professional, and inspected by a service technician.If you do it yourself, you could cause more damage, or void your warranty.If flooding occurs, contact a professional as soon as possible, and only when safe to do so.If left unattended, floodwaters can be harmful to your home.
