The interior of your home should be checked at the beginning of each season. Springtime also means Spring cleaning. Before you clean, inspect your home for any damages. Disaster Cleanup Services has some info to help keep the interior of your home in perfect shape and avoid any disasters!

Attics and Basements

Attics and basements are the least checked places in your home. It is important to check for leaks in your basement and attic, as the leaks can cause major water damages such as structural and mold growth.

Mold or Water Stains

Water or mold stains mean you have a leak somewhere in your home. If mold is growing you not only have water damages, but you have mold damages. If you see water or mold stains, contact a professional to find the problem, repair it, and remove the mold from your property.

Fire Alarms and Extinguishers

Your fire alarms could save your life in the event of a fire. It is important that you change the batteries of your fire alarm and test for proper function. Fire extinguishers should also be checked, as they do expire. It is also important that everyone knows where they are located and how to use them.

Pipes

Leaky pipes can cause water damages and mold growth in your home. Check exposed pipes to ensure they are not leaking. A small leak could cost you a lot in water damage restoration.

Water Heater

Water heaters can malfunction and rust over time. These problems can cause water heaters to flood your home. A water disaster can cause structural damages and even mold growth. Maintaining your water heater and performing regular inspections is a must.


Checking the items above can save you from experiencing a disaster inside your home. If you do have a disaster, it is important to call a professional such as Disaster Cleanup Services as soon as possible. Water and fire disasters should never wait.
