Practical Water Damage Prevention Tips for Your Alberta Home

Alberta is no stranger to floods. In the last decade, the province has had many big floods that harmed homes, infrastructure, and farmland. It's important to take precautions and use flood prevention measures to protect your home from water damage. The Krywolt Insurance team has some useful water damage prevention tips for Albertans.

But floods aren’t the only danger causing water damage to your home. Extreme weather, leaks in your doors, or plumbing issues can cause significant damage as well, so it’s crucial you take steps to prevent issues and ensure your home is properly protected. On average, in Alberta, water damage causes $1.5 billion in property damage every year, making it essential for homeowners to be proactive in their efforts to safeguard against potential water-related damage. By implementing regular maintenance routines, such as inspecting and repairing any damaged doors, windows, or plumbing, homeowners maximize their water damage prevention efforts and minimize the risk of expensive repairs.

So what water damage prevention measures can you undertake to protect your home and property? Our Calgary insurance agents share their water damage prevention tips for protecting your home in Alberta.

Why Is Water Damage So Bad?

It’s just a bit of water, right? What possible harm can it do? The thing is, unless you take steps to prevent water damage, a little water can do a lot of damage, especially if left unchecked. Water has a way of getting into places where it shouldn’t be, and it will always find the lowest level in a home. It can cause a series of safety, health and structural issues. Whether it’s a leak in your window sill, came in through a gap in your front door, a leaking plumbing fixture, a broken pipe, or a flooding event, Alberta homeowners must not underestimate the potential for issues that water damage can cause, and take steps to prevent major damage.

If left unchecked, even a small amount of moisture can cause damage that can lead to mold growth, rotting of wooden structures, and electrical hazards. Additionally, prolonged exposure to water can weaken the foundation of a building, compromising its structural integrity. To ensure this doesn’t happen in the first place, we recommend taking steps toward water damage prevention to avoid harm and costly repairs to your home and property.

What Can I Do To Prevent Water Damage?

As disruptive as water can be, there are ways to mitigate its effects and prevent moisture or water damage to your property. Ensuring there's no drainage issue on your property and regular home or plumbing maintenance can go a long way in terms of water damage prevention. While it can be hard to completely prevent water damage, you can take steps to lessen the risks and protect your home by implementing different types of water damage prevention measures.

Here are some water damage prevention tips you can implement to keep your home safe and dry:

Ensure You Have a Working Sump Pump

A sump pump is an essential device used to prevent water damage from basement flooding by removing excess water from the sump pit. In addition to protecting your basement, sump pumps also help to maintain a dry and healthy environment in your home.

A sump pump is a crucial tool in water damage prevention because it helps to remove excess water that may accumulate in your basement or lower levels of a building. By pumping the water out and away from the property, a sump pump can help prevent costly flooding and water damage, making them a crucial addition to any Alberta home in a low-lying area or for those living in areas prone to heavy rainfall or high water table levels.

However, that’s only if your sump pump works. If you have a faulty sump pump, homeowners could be at risk of significant damage to their foundation, belongings, and overall structural integrity of the building. So it’s important to regularly clean and maintain your sump pump, and contact a plumber if you notice any issues or have a faulty sump pump to ensure proper water damage prevention for your home.

Have a Working Backwater Valve

Backwater valves are an essential component in water damage prevention in that they prevent sewage or wastewater from flowing back into your home during instances of backflow. Additionally, it helps prevent water damage from potential flooding during heavy rain events or a sewer backup.

A sewer backflow or backup causes more than just extensive water damage. It can also lead to contamination of your home with harmful bacteria and other pathogens that can be found in wastewater, which pose some serious health risks to you and your family. So, it’s important to ensure you have a working backwater valve by contacting a professional plumber for maintenance to prevent water damage and worse issues from contaminated water.

Keep an Eye on Your Water Bill

As most of your plumbing infrastructure is hidden behind the walls of your home, one crucial water damage prevention tip is to keep an eye on your water bill. While it may seem like an ineffective water damage prevention method at first, your water bill tells you how much you use.

Issues like a pipe burst can make themselves known quite quickly with their dramatic water flow, but plumbing leaks can start out as a few drops of water, and the damage can grow if left unaddressed over an extended period of time.

If you start noticing higher-than-normal water usage or the amount of water you’ve been using has been increasing, but your habits haven’t changed, you may have a water leak, and should contact a plumbing service to fix the issue. Depending on when you catch it, you can prevent costly repairs or prevent water damage entirely.

Invest Time and Money in Home Maintenance

One key water damage prevention tip is to maintain your home. Often, water damage occurs because water can infiltrate various openings in your home or soak into your home’s foundation. So by maintaining your home, you’re taking steps towards water damage prevention. This includes:

  • Sealing exterior wood structures such as decks or fencing
  • Clean gutters bi-annually to prevent clogs
  • Install gutter guards to prevent clogged gutters
  • Fix leaks or cracks in your eavestrough and downspout
  • Install downspout extensions away from your home
  • Regularly inspect and repair your roof and exterior walls
  • Check crawl spaces, basements, attic spaces, and other hard-to-reach spots for signs of water damage or wood rot
  • Inspect your foundation wall for signs of cracks that could indicate structural damage
  • Ensure proper yard grading or install drainage systems like French drains
  • Ensure weatherstripping on windows and doors is in good condition
  • Fix leaking plumbing fixtures
  • Replace worn or damaged appliance hoses or other components
  • Check appliances for leaks
  • Prevent soil erosion with proper landscaping
  • Invest in backup power supply systems in case of power outages
  • Inspect your hot water heater for signs of leaks
  • Install leak detection systems
  • Keep basement floor drains clear
  • Get basement waterproofing services to secure your basement walls
  • Keep an eye out for discoloured or soft spots in your home

Ultimately, a well-maintained home is necessary to prevent water damage.

Store Things Off the Floor

If you’re in the basement or a lower level of a building, water damage prevention can be as easy as not storing things on the floor level or at least ensuring your floor storage is watertight. This way, in case of flooding, you prevent water damage to your belongings.

Water will flow down, and in the event of flooding, your basement or the lowest levels of your home will be at risk for water damage. Prevention measures such as ensuring you have proper window seals or a working sump pump can go a long way to prevent water damage, but in the event of a burst pipe or significant flooding in your community, taking care to protect your belongings, such as important documents, family heirlooms, and valuable possessions should be a top priority. Consider investing in waterproof storage containers or moving these items to higher ground to prevent water damage.

Additionally, especially in places that can come in contact with water, such as your yard or basement, look into getting water-resistant furniture or decorative items. This way, in case of heavy rainfall or flooding, you won’t have to worry about replacing damaged furniture or losing sentimental decor. It's always better to be proactive when it comes to water damage prevention and protecting your belongings.

Get Flood Insurance

Having insurance can provide water damage prevention as it can cover expenses for repairs and restoration in case of unexpected leaks or floods. This can give peace of mind and financial protection in the event of water damage. Additionally, your insurance agent will be able to advise you on the best ways to prevent water damage, such as installing proper drainage systems or leak detection devices.

They can also provide water damage prevention tips and recommendations for routine maintenance, like regular inspections and cleaning of gutters and downspouts. With their expertise, you can take proactive measures to minimize the risk to your property. Our Krywolt Insurance agents will be more than happy to speak with you about potential insurance coverage options, how you can prevent water damage, and how you can protect yourself and your property in the event of a flood, leak, or plumbing incident.

I cannot express enough how helpful this broker firm is. I specifically deal with Dwight Clink for all of my business needs. I have dealt with many brokers, NO ONE has ever stepped up to the plate with such amazing service. Iam a very busy owner and Dwight helps me immensely with many tasks without question. Thoroughly professional in every manner. One time I was out of out of the city on a Saturday and needed documents prossceessed. I emailed them expecting not to hear back until the following week and to my utter disbelief two members of the team reached out to help me!!! Now that is service.

Where do I start? Had my company vehicle ins with Brokerlink/Intact, but company CGI with Krywolt where I dealt with Sarah Lefebvre. I received our company auto renewal and it went from $1700 a year to $4900 a year!! I contacted my broker and asked why the insane increase and told him we can't afford this!! After a few hours, he called back and said he tried everything, but there is nothing he could do :-( Even though Sarah only handles our Commercial Ins, I emailed her and said "HELP" To make a long stressful story short, Sarah worked her butt off, trying to find out why the huge increase and see if she could get me a better deal. Of course, as soon as my Brokerlink rep found out I had gone someplace else, all of a sudden he found me a better deal !!?? BUT Sarah found an even better deal! I have never received such incredible personable customer service from an insurance broker in all my years of needing insurance. She has assisted me in other situations before all this as well which is why I reached out to her on this. I don't know about anyone else, but I feel having a broker who you can trust and communicate with is crucial! Thank you Sarah for everything you did for me! and thank you Krywolt for hiring her :-) Give this girl a raise :-)

Love dealing with Krywolt and Amit Pandhi. They were great from the outset and after a year of dealing with Amit, I cannot say enough about how responsive he is and how wonderful he is to deal with. We switched from AMA over a year ago as their car insurance rates skyrocketed but as a broker, Amit was able to get me great rates for 2 homes and 3 vehicles. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Krywolt and Amit. Dealt with Morgan when I first inquired and she is also terrific.

I went to Krywolt because of the high Google reviews. I was right to do so! Dan made the process easy on me, found great coverage and at an amazing rate. Dan is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. I am happy to know that my company is well protected and that's thanks to Dan!

Krywolt saved my business and has renewed my faith in the insurance industry. Dan is more kind and knowledgeable than anyone I've dealt with in the decade I've had my business and took the time to give me multiple options for things like ways to sign the paperwork online or in person and payment plans if needed. He also patiently and gladly walked me through anything I didn't fully understand. I can't say enough good things about how wonderful Krywolt has been to deal with. I tried 4 other companies trying to get my business insured after Covid shut us down for 1.5 years, I thought we were done for good as no one was able to help. (My biz doesn't fit in an easy box to insure.. or so other companies told me) Then as a last ditch effort I spent a whole day researching reviews for almost every broker in town and found Krywolt! Dan answered the phone when I called just to see if my online form went through - Instead of talking down to me and telling me to wait for a response he chatted with me for 20 minutes on the spot and within a few hours he had me insured with a company who specializes in my hospitality industry. No other broker I've talked to even knew about them... and they certainly didn't have any answers or keep me in the loop about how it was going after a week or more of waiting. I've been gaslighted, strait up lied to and talked down to by other brokers in the past few weeks, needless to say I was deflated before I found Krywolt. I didn't know a company in this industry could be so welcoming, Krywolt is a breath of fresh air and has inspired me to be better in my own business. Don't hesitate to fill out the form online or give them a shout. You will receive 5 star service and if you've ever dealt with other companies I bet you any money you will wish you had found them earlier.

I recently purchased a 2006 Peterbilt hi-way tractor & was in the process of getting it insured, wow did I get an eye opener. I spent 2 days phoning my insurance company and all others that I could find, 60% wouldn't touch me, the other 40% wanted the most ridiculous amount that it barely warranted putting it on the road to work, with a 40% to 70% deductible if anything happened!! After the Humboldt nightmare no one wants to talk to you. Trucker friend of a trucker told me to get ahold of Krywolt Insurance in Calgary they can help. Phoned & got ahold of Dan Hannaford, got talking & unreal Dan talked to Darren that owns Krywolt Insurance & it turns out that his grandfather and dad owned Krywolt Insurance in the Crowsnest Pass in Coleman. I remember old Al Krywolt when I went to insure my first car a 1964 Ford Galaxy. Al knew we were starving young boys working in the underground coal mine in those day, first time insuring a vehicle, old Al would always cut us a deal to get us on the road, just used to tell us just don't crash eh. However dealing with Dan Hannaford at Krywolt Insurance in Calgary within a day & some paperwork emailed and my Peterbilt hi-way tractor was insured the same day & here's the best part of the whole deal, their rates were 60% to 70% lower than any of the closest competition, did that ever make my day. Dan & his people at Krywolt Insurance were the kindest, most knowledgeable, & helpful people I've dealt with, no such thing as NO, just give me an hour & I'll be back to you. Imagine hooking up with the same people my parents & I dealt with nearly 40 years ago. Thank you very much to Dan & the people at Krywolt Insurance in Calgary for being a super big help for me. Highly Highly 100% recommended Thanks Everyone!!!!,👍😃

Ashley Wright has been my broker for a very long time now and she always goes above and beyond, always super helpful and timely with any questions or concerns. I couldnt imagine working with any other company or broker since working with her!

Have never had a complaint about the customer service Ashley Wright provides. Always easy to get a hold of and always very good at explaining things and finding the best policy for my needs. I recommend her to anyone I know and even to those I don't.

Dan and Morgan are 2 of the most competent and pleasant people I've worked with. They are quick to respond, thorough and lovely to deal with. I am fully confident with our insurance in their hands.

I have worked with Dan for over a decade with my business in Calgary and in Edmonton. Dan is a true professional and really Builder's after my best interests. I can count on him to provide documents very quickly for our bidding and tendering. He can also be counted on to provide general advice. Dan and his team at Krywolt are an invaluable partner to us at Lionsgate Builders. I would highly recommend them for your business or personal needs. Very trustworthy. Thanks Dan!

Krywolt Insurance Brokers is the absolute best in the insurance business! I highly recommend them for Business and Personal insurance requirements. Darren Krywolt, Dan Hannaford, and Sherry Thompson work extremely hard to determine the appropriate level of insurance required for the best price. Eagle Engineering Corp has carried comprehensive insurance for Commercial, Vehicle, and Professional Liability with Krywolt since they began. I personally have my home and vehicle insurance policies with Krywolt (arranged through Ashley Wright) so I have a high level of peace-of-mind knowing I'm well looked after.

Highly recommend Krywolt insurance!, I've worked with Kamal Grewal as my broker and I always get quick, complete and friendly responses , she went above and beyond to find me the lowest rates with all the coverage I needed for my new vehicle. This was my first time having insurance under my own name and she made the process very easy for me. She is very quick to reply and was happy to answer any questions . I highly recommend Kamal to anyone looking for an insurance broker she is great!

I worked with Ashley and Dan on a variety of insurance products. They were fantastic to work with: super knowledgeable, patient, excellent at explaining coverage options and finding the best balance of price versus coverage. They have access to a wide variety of products and markets so this is a one-stop shop. You will not be disappointed with these pros.

Excellent customer service. Last time I've talked with Kamal and today I talked with Ashley. Ashley went above and beyond to help me to find best quotes possible for my car and home insurance. I was impressed with Ashley's patience and knowledge as I had a million questions. Highly recommend this company for all your needs.

In 2019 i switched my business insurance over to Morgan Anderson at Krywolt and this year in 2020 i have switched both of my vehicle insurance policies over to Morgan again. She is an absolute pleasure to deal with - friendly, very quick to respond, professional. It is great to have one person to deal with instead of having to have multiple people for our various insurance needs.

I've had the pleasure of dealing with Kamel over the last 2 days and her professionalism and kind spirit made my experience a very positive one. i will strongly recommend to her to my close friends and family!

I had a fantastic experience using Krywalt. Kamal was very informative on what I needed to provide on my end, and the process that needed to happen to insure I received the best price for insurance. She was professional and very fast. I would definitely recommend anyone looking for hassle free and great price insurance to go through her and this company.

My wife and I were new to Canada from the UK. Therefore we had more difficult situations to setup our car insurance and our camper van insurance and trying to include our driving history. I can only honestly say that all the time Kamal went the extra mile, and was impressively responsive and professional, to help us with our car and house insurance needs. It is not in anyway exaggerating to say that Kamal has saved us thousands of dollars, particularly for our camper van, compared to other Canmore/Calgray broker quotes we were getting. I would not hesitate in recommending Kamal to anyone I know (and indeed I have already done so). We are very grateful to have Kamal as our insurance broker, it's rare to find someone so helpful in my experience (and I am 53 years old!), best wishes Professor Jim Freer

After having dealt with two different insurance brokers, Krywolt was my number one pick as they are very responsive and professional. I have worked directly with many of their staff, however I would highly suggest Dan Hannaford if you are looking for someone who knows his stuff and will do his best to get you the client what you require. They are a no joke insurance broker who will tell you upfront the real costs associated with your project. I highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of insurance.

As a new business owner I didn't fully understand the requirements for commercial insurance, however after calling Krywolt and speaking with Dan he was able to guide me through the process. His knowledge and experience was second to none and he made the process so easy. I called around to other firms and no one else was able to provide me with the recommendations I recieved from Dan. This is the place to call if your looking for insurance.

We worked with Dan on setting up commercial vehicle insurance and it was a fantastic experience. Dan was very knowledgeable and made suggestions that improved our coverage and provided better protection for our company all while finding us the best price. Dan was very responsive to our inquiries and always got back to us quickly. Are experience with Dan was very positive and we highly recommend Krywolt insurance.

I can’t say enough good things about this company and their representatives - especially a big shout out to Melaine!!! Their efficiency is over and beyond and they made all my insurance requirements big or small the easiest thing to do not to mention they saved me money by combining my coverages. Thank you all at Krywolt!
