Residential Protection: Limit Water, Mold, and Fire Damage
Being a homeowner is great, but it also comes with plenty of responsibilities. Though you have to make sure your bills are paid, the temperature is right, and the house is stocked with groceries, it's equally important that you focus on keeping your home protected.
Thankfully, emergency services can help both prevent household damages from ever occurring and addressing damage after it occurred in a timely and efficient manner.
Here are three main aspects of emergency services that can help homeowners avoid costly structural damage:
- Fire Damage Restoration -- Being able to quickly detect a fire will help keep you, your family, and your home safe and protected. Regardless of suppression system activation or location of the fire itself, if detection is able to provide a warning up to 10 to 15 minutes before the end of the incipient stage of the fire, your local fire department will be able to arrive on time and limit the possible damage. Protecting your home from fire damage is extremely important, but so is fire restoration. Working with professionals after any size fire is extremely important and can help minimize damage and put the entire situation behind you.
- Water Damage Restoration -- According to industry estimates, 14,000 people in the U.S. experience a water damage emergency either at home or at work every day. Whether the water damage is from constant leaks or flash floods, working with restoration professionals will be able to dry your home and get rid of all the water damage.
- Mold Remediation -- Mold is a common, yet serious household issue that many homeowners need to be aware of at all times. Since it only takes about 48 hours for mold to set in, it's important to act quickly when it comes to ridding your home of mold growth. The longer items inside your home remain wet, the more likely they will succumb to permanent damage or be completely destroyed -- so act quickly.
Make sure you're doing everything you can to not only protect your home from damage, but to repair your home effectively after damages, as well.
