Disaster Prevention

You may not think that dry weather can actually affect your property, but it can cause some damages to your property. When Summer is extremely hot, and there is little rain, it can be devastating to your property. Below we will discuss a few things that you should watch during a dry Summer.

Foundation Issues

Foundation problems can be a direct result of dry, hot weather. If your foundation dries out, it can cause structural damages, like cracks and splits. When you see concrete that has cracks, it is usually because the weather was extremely dry and warm. A lot of people water their foundations. While this might sound odd, it can actually save your foundation from cracking and splitting. It is best to do this after the Sun goes down.

Fires

Warm and dry weather is known to cause fires. If it is a dry time of the year, fires can spark from a small spark. Be aware of your surroundings if the weather is drier than normal. If you make a fire, ensure you put it out and never leave it unattended. It is also important to check with your fire station to make sure there are no burn bans in place. If you start a fire during a burn ban, you could end up with a fire and a ticket. If you do have a fire that affects your property, call a disaster cleanup company to handle all your fire restoration needs.

Mold and Mildew

Mildew and mold love dark and damp areas, but that doesn’t mean they cannot grow during a drought. If your home is humid, then mold will still breed and grow. It is important to keep your humidity level low. If you see mold and mildew stains, it means you already have an overgrowth. Once you see stains, you will need to contact a disaster cleanup company to completely remove the mold and find the reason for the mold growth.

Above are just some tips to help you through the dry weather. If you experience any disaster, never hesitate to call Disaster Cleanup Services, they will be able to clean up the mess and repair the damages.
