Big storms can wreak havoc on your property in more ways than one. Other than all that wind and rain pounding your roof, siding, windows, and landscaping, big storms can also have a serious effect on your plumbing. With significantly more rain comes extra water flowing through your drainage system. An overly stressed plumbing system can mean flooding issues both inside and outside of your home. To prevent serious flooding and other expensive consequences, it is best to prepare your plumbing for serious storms right now.
Do you have a sump pump somewhere in your property? If you do, then now is a great time to check whether your sump pump is working properly and is not clogged with debris. If your sump pump is not turning on or is full of debris, then you may be in serious trouble when the next big storm hits. Contact AAA AUGER Plumbing Services as soon as possible to help get your sump pump back in good working order.
With your sump pump taken care of, it is time to move onto your drains and gutters. Clogging in your drain line or gutters can lead to serious problems in the event of heavy rains. In the case of clogged gutters, lots of rain can lead to foundation problems, basement flooding, mold, and mildew. If your drain line is clogged during a big storm, then you could potentially experience back-ups inside of the home. So, if you want to be safe rather than sorry, then now is the time to clear out both your drain line and your gutters. Do not be afraid to ask for help from our friendly AAA AUGER Plumbers with checking your drain line.
Is a catastrophic storm heading your way and you are thinking about evacuating? If you are thinking about leaving your home during a big storm, then turn off your main water valve. Big storms bring the risk of flooding, and that could mean hazardous flood water making its way into your plumbing. By turning off your main water valve, you will be greatly reducing the chances of having dangerous flood water in your plumbing system.
So, you have taken all of the necessary precautions. Your plumbing system is ready for the big storm. The storm comes and goes. Now what? It is time to perform a post-storm plumbing system assessment. You will likely have quite a lot of debris in your gutters and around your downspout that should be cleared. Look out for anything strange in your drinking water, such as discolored water. It may be a good idea to contact AAA AUGER Plumbing Services to conduct a thorough plumbing inspection. Doing this will ensure that the storm did not damage your plumbing in any way. If there is damage, then you can have your plumbing repaired now instead of waiting for serious problems to occur in the future.
