The Main Causes of Property Damage and

How to Protect Your Home

Buying a house is one of the biggest investments you will ever make in life. As such, it’s important you know how to protect it from some of the most common causes of damage. Although you never want to imagine anything going wrong with your home, it’s sensible to prepare for the worst-case scenario. Many homeowners overlook the most common causes of damage and are faced with a stressful predicament when it’s too late. If you want to know how to protect your home, you’ve come to the right place. In this guide, we’re going to list some of the main causes of damage and how to prevent them: 1. Wind Regardless of which state you live in, one of the most common causes of property damage is wind. During particularly violent storms, gusts of wind can pull up trees, destroy roofing, and even send objects lying on the ground hurtling towards your property. Never wait until a storm occurs to take action. Regularly check the roof for any loose tiles and replace accordingly, make sure that objects are secured to the floor or stored during hurricane season, and keep trees trimmed. 2. Theft Did you know that a burglary occurs every 20 seconds in the USA? During a raid, burglars may also cause damage to the property while searching for goods. With this in mind, it would be in your best interests to ensure your home is protected against any unwanted intruders who may try to enter your home. Cut back trees and bushes where burglars could hide and install motion sensor lighting so that you’re instantly alerted whenever someone is approaching the property. 3. Rodent damage It’s not usual for rodents to make their way into the attic of your home. Not only can they carry infectious diseases, which put your health and safety at risk, but they can also damage the structure of the building. There are several tell-tale signs that may alert you that rodents are present. These include: Droppings Footprints Signs of chewing and gnawing Scratching sounds If you believe that your home has been infested with rodents, it would be advised to call Attic Projects Company to remove rodents inside attic. 4. Fire Fire is one of the most devastating causes of damage to a home. While you can’t always prevent fires starting, it’s always best to stay on the lookout for issues in the home that may pose a hazard. Keep your eye out for threadbare wiring, never leave the kitchen while cooking, and refrain from overloading electrical systems. To best protect your home from a fire, you can use fire-retardant chemicals in areas that may be most at risk, such as the kitchen or yard. Similarly, clean your gutters regularly and install duel-pane windows. It’s not always possible to protect your home against damage, but the above tips should give you a rough idea of what to look out for and how to prevent issues from occurring as best you can.
