With the new year ahead, it is the perfect time to check your home for any damages that could lead to home disasters. Many home disasters can be avoided with proper home maintenance. Below, Restoration 1 Conroe will go over some areas you should check to keep you and your family safe this year!
Check Your Roof
Your roof should be regularly checked for any missing shingles or damages to the structure. Any damages should be repaired as soon as possible to ensure water damages do not occur. Blocked or clogged gutters can cause structural damages that may lead to water inside your home. Checking your roof should be completed often to ensure the structure of your home is not damaged.
Test Fire Alarms and Extinguishers
Fire alarms should be tested, and the batteries changed. If you do not have fire alarms in your home, now is the perfect time to install them. Fire alarms could save your life and your home in the event a fire does occur. You should also verify that your fire extinguishers are not expired or empty. A fire extinguisher could stop a small fire from turning into a major one.
Check for Any Damages to The Exterior of Your Home
Damages to your siding, brick, or windows could result in water damages to your home. Water damages can cause rot and mold growth. Both of these problems can be costly to repair. Checking the exterior of your home regularly should be at the top of your list. A simple walk around could save you from water damage restoration and mold remediation services.
Check Your Ceilings for Any Stains
If you notice any stains on your ceiling or walls, you need to call a restoration company. Stains mean you have water damages and, most likely, mold growth. Mold can spread throughout your home, running the structure, and making you sick in the process.
