Protecting Your Home from Rain Water

SERVPRO of Ozaukee County uses a staff of experienced water damage technicians to work on projects in your community. That means we have unique insights into how you can protect your home from suffering water damage.

Basic home maintenance can make a difference, and many of these projects might be on your list already.

Take stock of your yard. Understanding your yard and how it drains in relation to your home can help you protect your home. If you notice that your yard is draining toward your home, then you might want to get in touch with a landscaping expert to look for ways to protect your yard.

Think about native plants as a landscaping option. Many people choose plants and flowers because they like the aesthetics they create. But choosing landscaping items for protection can ensure your home is ready for heavy rain. Native plants, trees and shrubs can be vital in protecting your home from water damage.

Look into sealing your roof. Experts estimate that almost 95% of damage is caused by water finding its way through gaps in your shingles, which can be prevented with this step. It’s definitely worth considering.

If you need help dealing with damage caused by water, fire or any other issue, SERVPRO of Ozaukee County is here to help you restore your home. We have crews who are available 247 in the event of an emergency. Contact SERVPRO of Ozaukee County, 262-242-8888, at any time to learn more about us and how we can help you restore your home to its original state.
