3) Repair any leaks: Fixing any leaks in your roof, windows, or plumbing can help prevent water damage.

4) Use waterproofing materials: Waterproofing your basement walls and floor can help prevent water from entering your home.

5) Store valuable items in a safe place: In the event of a flood, it is important to move valuable items to a safe place to prevent them from being damaged.
