Maintenance of gutters and downspouts: Make sure they are clean and in good condition to allow rainwater to flow properly away from the house.

Drainage system: Install an adequate drainage system to carry rainwater away from the house, such as French drains or lift pumps.

Foundation Waterproofing: Make sure your home’s foundation is waterproof by filling cracks and applying a waterproof coating if necessary.

Water level monitoring: Install a water level monitoring system in your basement to be notified if the water level rises.

Landscaping: Avoid building slopes toward your home that could allow rainwater to accumulate near the foundation.

Sump Pumps: Install a sump pump in your basement to pump out water in the event of a flood.

Home insurance: Make sure you have adequate home insurance that covers flood damage. By following these tips, you can significantly reduce the risk of flooding at home.
