Protect yourself from flooding

These past few days of rain have put a lot of city-dwellers on edge. Because of the serious flooding caused by both Hurricanes Irene and Sandy, home owners are well aware of what can happen when caught unprepared. Before the next heavy rainfall, we at Hudson Home Improvement recommend installing a check valve on your sewer lateral, the underground pipe that connects your home to the city’s sewer main.
After Hurricane Sandy, a local family living in a condo had raw sewage in their home, creating not only a huge mess but also potential health hazards. With the condo’s approval, we were able to install a check valve to prevent sewage from backing up into the building’s pipes.
