Water backing up in a basement trap A pump broke over the weekend in a basement and caused a backup.

The worst time for water damage to occur is while you are out of the home, as you have no control over the destruction that may occur. Here are some helpful tips to keep your house protected from any water damage while you are enjoying your summer vacations.

Before you leave:

-Inspect your home for leaks or rusts in pipes, water heaters, windows, doors, roofs, and hoses.

-Clean out your gutters of debris to prevent water pooling and damage.

-Shut off water supply, whether at the main valve or at the most frequent offenders (toilets, refrigerators, and washing machines).

-Install and test Sump Pump annually.

While you are away:

-Have someone check on your house to make sure that, if a leak does occur, it will be caught and stopped as quickly as possible.

If you have suffered water damage or any other disaster at your home or business, call SERVPRO of Lowell (978)-454-7577
