Preventing sewer back-up
Some floods cannot be prevented. Heavy rain or snow melt can overwhelm creeks, rivers or city sewers, sending water into homes and businesses. While these situations dictate that you be prepared to react, you can be proactive and reduce the chances of flooding caused by defective drains or frozen pipes. Consider the following to protect your home or business:
- Schedule regular inspections of basement and garage drains at homes or businesses, and commercial kitchen drains. Repair damage to prevent debris from interfering with drainage.
- Educate family and office staff about what not to put down drains and into toilets.
- Keep septic systems and sump pumps in good repair.
- Have back-up power for your sump pump, especially in the event of a power outage
- Keep heat at appropriate settings when your home or office is not in use during cold weather.
- Open cabinets that hold water pipes to allow warm air to circulate.
- Arrange for occasional visits to your home or office if it will unoccupied for a long period of time.
