Check Fire Alarms and Fire Extinguishers
Fire alarms and fire extinguishers should be checked with the change of each season. These two items can save your life in the event of a home fire. Check the batteries in your fire alarm and test it to ensure it is functioning correctly. Your fire extinguishers should not be expired and should be located in different areas of your home for easy access. It is also important to teach everyone how to use a fire extinguisher.
Check the Exterior of Your Property
Winter weather conditions can wreak havoc on the exterior of your home. Your roof protects you from all the elements and takes a beating. Check to ensure all roofing shingles are not missing and in place. Checking your siding and gutters are also important. Damage to either of these areas can also cause extensive water damages to your property.
Check Your Attic
If you have roof damages, you will likely notice if you check your attic thoroughly. If you see any leaks or wet spots inside your attic, you need to hire a professional to inspect your roof. Roof leaks can cause structural damages and mold growth. Both of which can severely damage your property.
Remove Hanging Limbs Near Your Home
Tree limbs that are over your home can be hazardous. In the event a severe storm passes through, these limbs can fall and cause damages to your property. Storm damages are common in Texas and can cause damaging water damages to the interior of your home. Limbs can also fall on your car or hurt someone that is outside during a storm. Have all dead or dangerous limbs removed as soon as possible!
