Summer has arrived and with it comes bonfires, pool parties, family, and friends. Summer is also a time for disasters to your home. From water damages to fires, the team at Restoration 1 Conroe wants you to be safe and prepared during this hot Summer! Below we will discuss 5 disasters and talk about a way to possibly prevent them from happening!
With storms and water damages comes mold spores. Mold can quickly breed and grow in damp and dark places. Meaning, mold can quickly take over your home without you even knowing. If you are already seeing mold stains, it means you already have mold overgrowth. The best way to prevent mold is to be vigilant if you do suffer water damages or have any leaks. These leaks and water damages can not only cause mold but structural damages.
Texas is known for its severe weather and that especially the case during the Summer months. Texas heat makes the storms even more dangerous. Storms can cause damaging hail and winds. This can cause roof and water damages to your property. While you cannot do much to prevent mother nature, you can be prepared. Stay aware of the weather and make sure your home is secured for severe weather.
Texas Summers can sometimes be extremely dry. When this happens, we see a lot more fires in the area. While some fires are not preventable, many are and can be stopped with the proper fire preparedness. Fires can be caused by outdoor bonfires, grilling, and even fireworks. It is best that you are always aware of your surroundings, listen to burn bans, and keep your fire alarms and extinguishers in working order.
Flash flooding can happen quickly in low lying areas, especially if the storms are severe. While you cannot prevent flooding from storms, you can prevent indoor flooding from leaks and faulty appliances. Your dishwasher, washer, and hot water heater are the most common appliances to cause flooding in your home. It is best to check them regularly. If you suspect a leak in your home, have it repaired as soon as possible. Flooding can cause water damages that will lead to mold and structure problems.
Pests are always a problem, but even more so during the Summer months. Texans know all about the pests that can inhabit your home. These pests can cause damages to the structure of your property, as well as make you and your family sick if stung. It is important to always have a plan in place to ensure your property is protected from all types of pests and rodents.
