Prepare For Winter Now
Harsh winters are never any fun. The water damage that can come with them makes it even more difficult to cope with. Snow and ice are constantly whirling around the streets causing water damage levels to increase greatly during this time period. With winter right around the corner, you need to start taking steps to prevent water damage and mold from becoming a problem in your home. Regular inspections are not a bad thing!
Check the roof first. Not only because it’s a pain, but because if damage starts up there, it’s all going to go downhill and create problems for the rest of the home. Damaged or missing shingles must be replaced as soon as possible. Staining on the roof is also a good indication of water damage. You can also look from inside the attic, if you notice any light shining through, it should be patched up immediately. You want to be very careful if you do notice water damage. Water damage plus all of the rain, snow, sleet, and hail can cause serious stress on the structure of your home. This could cause the roof to actually collapse!
Another popular spot for water damage lies with the gutters. Make sure to check out all of the gutters for clogging or barriers blocking the flow. Clogging can cause back up pretty quickly. This creates a problem because the water will no longer be going down the drain and away from your home, it will just overflow ONTO your home.
Any form of water damage, no matter how big or small, should be dealt with right away. If you try to complete the project by yourself and miss something, you are in for even more problems. Not to mention time and money down the drain. To save you the hassle, call a restoration company!
