Water damage to your home is the subsequent event to your home or property due to rain or a thunderstorm. Water damage can occur anywhere at any time, even in the places we would least expect it. Most often, water soaks into our walls and ceilings. There is a plethora of reasons we should not leave these areas untreated and here are some of the risks that would occur by doing so:

  • Irreversible Stains and Water Markings on Ceilings and Walls
  • Mold/Mildew
  • Odor
  • Corrosion of Pipes
  • Holes in Cement Floors
  • Brittle Drywall
  • Compromised Electrical Work

All these things depreciate the value of the home and cause way more trouble than it would have if the water damage were treated immediately.

space heater here are important things to observe and learn so you can take the proper precautions in preventing a fire in your home.

If you are looking to prevent a house fire and become more knowledgeable on the topic, you are in the right place. Housefires are most common in the winter time due to frequent cooking around the holidays. There are important things to observe and learn so you can take the proper precautions in preventing a fire in your home. Below are 5 ways to prevent a house fire in your home according to the American Red Cross:

  • All heaters need space. Keep children, pets and things that can burn (paper, matches, bedding, furniture, clothing, carpets, and rugs) at least three feet away from heating equipment.
  • If you must use a space heater, place it on a level, hard and nonflammable surface (such as ceramic tile floor), not on rugs, carpets or near bedding or drapes. Plug power cords directly into outlets - never into an extension cord.
  • Never leave a fire in the fireplace unattended, and use a glass or metal fire screen to keep fire and embers in the fireplace.
  • Never use a cooking range or oven to heat your home.
  • Turn off portable space heaters every time you leave the room or go to sleep.
