This summer has been extremely hot. We have also seen little rain. Dry weather can cause issues with your home. Disaster Cleanup Services is here to help you during this extreme heat wave. We know the dangers of a dry summer and our team has some information to help you get through it, disaster free.

  • Mold and Mildew

Mold and mildew enjoy dark and damp areas. Hot weather, is also the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. It is important to keep your home less humid. The more humid your home is, the more likely it is that you have mold. Once you see mold or mildew, it is out of control. Mold breeds in areas you would not normally check. Your basement or crawl spaces are perfect for mold growth. If you see mold, call a professional disaster cleanup service immediately. It is important to stop the mold, before it takes over your home and makes your ill.

  • Foundation Issues

With dry weather comes foundation problems. If your foundation dries out, it could crack. This is why you see cracks in concrete. It is because of the drier weather. To avoid any type of foundation problems, it is important to ensure the foundation around your house is not to dry. Many people water their foundation. You can easily setup a sprinkler to water around your house after the sun goes down. This protects your home or foundation and structural damages. If you do have any type of disaster, you can call a disaster cleanup company to handle the dirty job for you!

  • Fires

Drier weather means more fires. A simple spark can cause a major fire if the weather is dry. It is very important that you are aware of your surroundings when cooking inside and out. It is also important to be mindful of outdoor activities that could spark a fire. If you do experience a fire, you can call a certified cleanup company, such as Disaster Cleanup Services. They will be able to handle fire cleanups and fire restoration.
