Household Tips

Colder weather is coming, and with it can come major home disasters. Being prepared for the Winter weather is the first step to a disaster free Winter. Disaster Cleanup Services has some tips to ensure your home stays warm and disaster-free this Winter! Below are a few tips to keep your home safe!

Have your Furnace Checked

Before the start of Winter, you should have your furnace checked for any damages. Proper maintenance by a certified professional can ensure your furnace stays working all Winter long. If your furnace breaks, your home becomes susceptible to frozen pipes and other damages.

Check Your Fire Alarms

Fire alarm batteries should be replaced, and your units should be checked. Winter brings about a lot of home fires. Being prepared can save you and your family in the event of a fire. Make sure your fire alarms are working properly and that your fire extinguishers are in good working order!

Make Sure Your Home is Well Insulated

Making sure all windows, doors, and exposed pipes are well insulated will not just save you money on your electric bill. It will also ensure you do not end up with frozen pipes and major water damages.

Keep an Eye on the Winter Weather

Keeping an eye on the weather can save you a lot in home damages. Weather is oftentimes unpredictable, but knowing what is happening can ensure your home stays free from frozen pipes, ice dams, and other damages.

If you do experience water damages from frozen pipes, call a professional disaster cleanup company as soon as possible. Water damages can escalate quickly. If you experience a fire, you should wait for the area to be released by the fire marshal and then call a certified fire restoration company. Time is always of the essence when it comes to home disasters!
