Winter is finally on its way out the door! With it comes spring with beautiful flowers and warmer weather. With your spring cleaning should come another important task, checking the interior and exterior of your home to ensure no damages have occurred to your property that could result in a disaster.
Checking your home exterior is extremely important after winter, especially after all the snow and ice we have had this year. Minor damages can turn into much larger problems if they are not repaired.
Checking your roof and attic is one of the most important areas you can check. Your roof takes the brunt of the severe weather. Loose or missing shingles can cause water damages. Clogged gutters can cause water to leak into your attic and sides of your walls. Check your attic and roof for any damages or leaks. This could save you from structure damages or mold growth in the future.
Windows can become damaged during the winter. Seals can come loose, and cracks can occur. This can lead to water leaking into your home through your windows.
Your siding can become damaged from hail and other elements. Damaged siding can lead to rodents entering your home, as well as water damages and mold growth. If you have any damages to your siding, repair them as soon as possible.
It is important always to check your fire alarms to ensure they are working correctly. Your fire alarm is your best defense against a fire in your home.
Attics are known for water damages and rodent infestations. It is important to make sure you have no leaks in your roof or holes in your attic.
Water Heaters and HVAC Systems
Water heaters and HVAC systems should have proper maintenance to ensure they do not break. Water heaters can cause flooding to your home if not checked regularly. Your HVAC system can also cause fires in your home.
