Regularly check if your sump pump has enough capacity to handle water during an emergency in winter. Many people have sump pump installed but do not even know if it is working or not. Check backwater valve alarm and backflow prevention valve.

Clogged drain lines are often the primary cause for basement flooding. Make sure that you clean your house’s internal drain lines with boiling water to remove grease and other waste material clogging the line or take assistance from drain cleaning service providers to clean it. Generally basements have some kind of waterproofing and you can consult a plumber to know if your basement has waterproofing or not. It will not cost you much.
