#BePrepared - Flood Season

Springtime is the start of flood season in Alberta. Education around flood preparedness and a little home maintenance can go a long way. Here are a few preventative action items to #BePrepared and ensure your property stays dry: 
• Use weather protection sealant around basement windows and the bases of ground-level doors. 
• Ensure downspout drainage moves water away from the property. 
• Install a sump pump and zero reverse flow valves in basement floor drains. Make sure your sump pump is replaced regularly according to the manufacturer’s guidelines.
