Richard E. Nobles Offers Tips on Protecting Your Home from Water Damage
Preparing your home to be ready for a natural disaster or flooding can be a daunting task. Richard E. Nobles offers tips on protecting your home from water damage.
With over a decade of experience in the commercial and residential insurance industry, Richard E. Nobles, and ProTouch Restoration know how to handle a disaster. As the Director of Commercial Development at ProTouch, Richard E. Nobles understands how important it is to protect your home and business from loss or damage during flooding.
Water intrusion can happen from rain or internally based on various factors in the way your home was constructed or your plumbing system. Water intrusion can ultimately cause large amounts of damage and when left alone and not properly taken care of, can lead to the loss of loved ones, personal and commercial property and valuables.
“You can’t prepare for everything,” explained Richard E. Nobles. “The clients we work with that see the most success when it comes to disasters, are those that do however prepare as much as possible in advance.”
Some tips Richard E. Nobles recommends is ensuring that your property is graded the right way, so that water can move away from your basement walls, and when possible always repair sidewalks, decks and driveways, or other areas that may have shifted over the years, because this can allow for more water to pool closer to your home, causing potential flooding problems in the future.

Richard E. Nobles also points out that by maintaining your eavestroughs and gutters, you can ensure that they won’t be blocked, allowing for water to properly pass through and not clog. In the same vein, it’s also crucial that you keep storm drains clear and replace roof damage as soon as possible.
There is also plenty of work to do inside the house, explained Richard E. Nobles. Ask your plumber about installing a backwater valve, which can stop water and sewage from coming back into the house during heavy rainfall, and can save customers and clients thousands of dollars in damages if flooding ever occurs.
Richard E. Nobles also recommends that customers install water leak sensors and alarms that will alert you if there are possible leaks, which can be a huge help if you are ever traveling and are away from your home.
Preparing for disasters can be a challenge, which is why Richard E. Nobles and ProTouch Restoration are here to walk you through the process every step of the way.
