Summer is an eventful time of the year. Parties, family gatherings, sports, and other activities can make your life hectic. When your life becomes hectic, it is easy to forget about the simple things you should be doing around your property. It is important that you safety check your property regularly to ensure there are no damages and that you are prepared in the occasion a disaster was to occur.
Check Your Roof
It is imperative that you check your roof regularly. Texas has a lot of severe weather, and with the storms can come strong winds and hail. Roofs are meant to stand up to the elements but missing, or broken shingles are common after severe weather. It is also crucial to check for any structural damages, as limbs could hit your roof and cause damages. While you are checking your roof, check the trees around your home to ensure they do not need to be trimmed.
Check Your Fire Alarms
Fires are devastating and can destroy homes within minutes. Always check your fire alarms. Replace the batteries and test your fire alarms to ensure they are working. You should also have a fire safety plan in place so that everyone knows what to do if there is a fire. Summer fires are common.
Check Your Attic
Doing a quick sweep of your attic is most likely not on your to-do list, but it should be. By checking your attic, you can see if there are any leaks in your roof. You can also check your hot water heater if it is located in the attic. Hot water heaters can cause significant flooding if they break.
Check Your Foundation
Checking your foundation is essential. Slab leaks are not uncommon and not very noticeable. A slab leak can cause major water damages to your home. Check your foundations for cracks, hot spots, or wet soil near the foundation. These are all indications of a slab leak.
