Household Tips

Attics and basements are two of the most commonly ignored areas of your home. These two areas are not regularly checked and may go months before someone needs to go into the basement or attic. These two areas are mostly known for water damages. Water damages that occur in the basement and attic usually are severe because the water sits before anyone realizes there is a problem.

Attics

Attics commonly have water damages. This is usually because of damages to the roof or gutter. Water will leak into the attic before leaking and causing water stains on your ceiling. Once you spot water stains on your ceiling, you could have extensive damages to your attic, as well as mold growth. Checking your attic regularly should be at the top of your list. A quick check could ensure you do not have water damages.

Basements

Basements are prone to flooding since it is the bottom of your property. If any water damages occur, it is likely to end in the basement. Basements are dark and damp and not usually inviting. This leads to people not entering their basements. This can be a massive problem if you have flooding. A flooded basement will not only have significant structural and water damages but likely mold growth. Installing a sump pump in your basement is one way to help stop flooding from occurring.

Attics and basements should be on your list of areas you check regularly. Once a week, you should make it a habit to check both areas and make sure you have no holes or damages. Any water damages can become major the longer they sit. Disaster Cleanup Services provides top of the line water damage cleanup and mold removal services if you do end up with water damages or mold growth.
