Check Fire Alarms

Fire alarms are meant to be tested regularly. We also recommend battery changes when testing your fire alarms. This will ensure your fire alarms are functioning correctly if you experience a dangerous fire in your home. Fire alarms should be placed strategically throughout your home. Hiring a professional to add fire alarms to your home is always a great idea. If your fire alarms are not in the proper places, they may not signal a fire.

HVAC and Water Heater Maintenance

We get a lot of calls from homeowners about flooding disasters from water heaters. Water heater flooding can be avoided with proper maintenance. Hiring a professional to check your water heater and provide maintenance can save you thousands of dollars in water damages, structural repairs, and mold removal. HVAC systems should also be maintained, as they have been known to cause water damages and fires. Take the extra time and money to have your appliances checked and maintained. It is one of the best ways to avoid disasters in your home.

Check For Leaks

Leaks can occur from a variety of sources. Leaky pipes, roof damages, or faulty appliances are all common causes of leaks in your home. Regularly checking your home can ensure any leaks are caught early. Early detection will ensure you avoid major water damage, rot, and mold growth on your property.

Trim Limbs

Trimming limbs that are near your house is important. A severe storm with winds could cause a tree limb to fall onto your home. This can cause extensive damages to the structure, as well as water damages. You should your limbs checked by a landscaper. They will be able to remove any hazardous limps and avoid damages to your property.
