The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and you and your family are a hop, skip, and jump away from relaxing on beach. As a homeowner, it can be a nerve racking to leave your home unattended for a week, or even a few days. Take these steps before you leave to ensure you can have peace of mind while you are away.

  1. Shut off the main water valve to your home, even if you only plan to be gone for a few days. This eliminates the risk of flooding due to broken pipes.
  2. Check your sump pump to ensure it is working properly in case of flooding due to heavy rain. Consider purchasing a battery-powered back up to protect your home if you lose power.
  3. Inspect the hoses leading to major appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers, checking for kinks or damage.
  4. Ask a neighbor or trusted friend to check in on your home on a regular basis. They can water your plants, grab your mail, and make sure no major disasters have occurred in your absence.

Even the most cautious and responsible homeowner can sometimes suffer the consequences of water damage. If you find yourself in this situation, do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of West Erie County! We are happy to help and will have your home looking “Like it never even happened.”
