Disaster Prevention

Summer is right around the corner. It is a time for enjoying the weather and your family, but you should always ensure your home is prepared so that you don’t experience any disasters. Disaster Cleanup Services is here to help you with our checklist to make sure your home is ready and that you can have a worry free summer!

1.Fire Alarm Checks

Fire alarms are very important and should be checked regularly. We recommend checking them before and after the start of each season. This way, you are prepared and have that peace of mind, knowing they are in working order.

2. Basement/Attic Checks

Basements and attics are places that you normally don’t go. It is important that you regularly check your attic and basement for any leaks or open areas. Leaks can turn into a flood if not handled right away. You also want to ensure that you do not have any holes that could lead into your home. This is a way for rats and other animals to get in and that can cause a whole new set of problems for your home.

3. Exposed Pipe Checks

Outdoor and indoor exposed pipes should be checked regularly to ensure that they are not broken or cracking. Summer is a time for vacations and a cracking pipe could cause your whole home to flood. It is important to check all your pipes so that you can have a worry free summer.

4. Water Heater Checks

Making sure your water heater is working is very important. Rusted areas or leaking spots can cause rot and could eventually lead to a flooded basement or home. Checking this before each season is very important and will allow you to get a head start if you do have a leak. If not, you know that you do not have to worry about it.

5. Sewer Line Checks

If you have an area where you can see your sewer lines, it is important to make sure they look to be in working order. If they aren’t, you could be in for a sewer that could back up into your home or property. Sewage is hazardous to your health and should only be handled by a professional such as Disaster Cleanup Services.
