Preventing Hellish Home Disasters This Summer


The time is looming closer and closer; it’s the moment the kids break up from school and all hell breaks loose in the house. Why is it that when the whole brood is at home, something has to go wrong? From toilet leaks to unwanted pests, you want to make sure that you are prepared for the summer rush. Whether you’re trying to create an eco-friendly bedroom or improve your security measures around the house, there are many ways that you can prevent hellish home disasters.

Once you have ticked all of these items off your to-do list, you will have peace of mind that your house is ready for anything.

Hire a Plumber

As soon as you have a full household everything seems to break; that’s just the way it seems to go.

When you have a home full of kids who need bathroom breaks every five minutes, you might want to get your plumbing checked over by Plumb Works. Plumbers aren’t just there to deal with unexpected emergencies, they can also help you to maintain your home and keep everything ticking along smoothly.

In your case, it is better to be safe than sorry so book an inspection and you will feel confident that everything is in working order for the long haul.

Treat Pests Now

Bed bugs, mice and flees can be pretty comfortable in our household without us even realizing!

If you have never had an inspection from pest control, now might be the perfect time to give them a call. It is much easier to prevent future problems than fix ones that have already grown out of hand.

Check Your Home for Damp

Mould and damp is a very common issue amongst busy households. The air in your home can become easily contaminated without you even noticing.

When your air isn’t pure you are putting your family at risk for respiratory issues and other long term health problems. It is always safer to get a thorough check from an expert than risk the appearance of damp when you least expect it.

A professional will be able to assess the number of bacteria in the air and will recommend a thorough treatment plan that will make the environment safer for your family.

Fire Alarm and Security Check

Carrying out regular checks on your fire alarm is extremely important. Although you might think you have changed the batteries recently, it is always best to double check once a month.

You should also test your security system at home to make sure everything is in place before your kids are home all day for the summer.

You can never be too prepared when it comes to checking over your home for faults and issues.

As long as you can stay on top of the maintenance, you will have peace of mind that no unexpected incidents happen when the kids are around. After you have tackled this list of household jobs, you will feel confident that your home is a happy and safe place for them to be this summer.
