The Holiday season is upon us and with it comes a time with family and friends. The holidays can be an exceedingly busy and stressful time of the year. It is also one of the more common times for home disasters to occur. With busy schedules, it is easy to overlook simple things that could help you to avoid a home disaster. Disaster Cleanup Services has a few tips to help you survive the holidays, disaster-free.

Fires

Fires occur more during the holidays for a variety of reasons, but they can often be avoided. Checking your fire alarms and extinguishers should be at the top of your list, but what else can you do to prevent fires? Keep an eye on the oven while cooking. It is so easy to get caught up with family and friends that you forget the food in your oven. You should also check that all your holiday lighting is in good condition and that you are using the proper extension cords for indoor and outdoor decorations. These small tips can save you from experiencing a fire this holiday season.

Water Damages

Water damages occur from frozen pipes, leaky roofs, and even faulty appliances. While you cannot be prepared for a faulty appliance, you can keep an eye on your roof and pipes. If your roof has too much snow on it or an ice dam begins to form, have it removed. This can save you a lot of money on water damages and mold in the future. If the weather is going to be colder than usual, turn the heat on and run some water to ensure your pipes do not freeze. If you notice a frozen pipe, call a plumber as soon as possible. They can usually repair it before it bursts.

Ice Dams

Ice dams are a common occurrence during the winter. Ice dams form as water freezes and unfreeze on your roof. The ice eventually becomes a large barrier and traps the water. When the water has nowhere to go, it usually causes roof leaks and leaks around your gutters. This can cause a lot of damages to the structure of your home, as well as water damages and mold.

By keeping an eye on the above items, you should have a disaster-free holiday season. If you do experience any type of disaster, it is crucial to call the professionals for disaster cleanup services, as they will be able to ensure your home is fully restored from fires and water damages.
