2. Clean and prevent clogged gutters. Keep your gutters free from debris to ensure adequate drainage from your roof. Allow the gutters to extend at least three feet from foundation to keep water from seeping in. Frequently check and clean gutters.
3. Inspect or repair your foundation. If you notice crack on the interior and/or exterior side of your home, be sure to repair them to keep water from making its way into your home.
