Home Flood Prevention in Ontario

Nadine Evans

Most homeowners do not realize how important it is to install home flood prevention devices in their Ontario homes until it’s too late. High-tech flood protection devices like the Eddy IQ and Eddy H2O Sensor from Eddy Home are capable of so much more than merely detecting pipe leaks or small basement floods in your home. In fact, these state-of-the-art smart water-measuring devices can help you learn about your water consumption habits and monitor how water is being used and wasted in your home.

Why Is Basement Flood Prevention Necessary for Homes?
The answer to this question is simple yet twofold. It’s important to actively take steps to protect your basement against potential flooding because your basement provides the structural foundation for your home. It also happens to be the most vulnerable part of your home because it’s underground and, in some cases, it houses most of your main water consuming appliances such as your washing machine and water heater. The problem is that most people don’t spend enough time in their basements to be able to detect if something’s wrong on their own. By the time they figure it out, there’s no telling the extent of the damage. A weakened or compromised foundation can quickly lead to other potentially dangerous and extremely expensive damages. As the homeowner, it’s your responsibility to protect your family, your property, and your investment by guaranteeing you have a reliable home flood prevention plan in place.
