Going on vacation is one of the most exciting parts of the summer. But if you’re not careful, your house could be more of a wreck when you come back than before you left. That’s why making sure you keep on top of in-home maintenance is always a good idea. If you can’t keep up, then Hydro Clean Certified Restoration has your back.
Turn Off Water Supply
One way to prevent unexpected water damage in your home is to turn off the water supply. While this typically isn’t a problem, you never know what could go wrong while you’re out of the house for an extended period, even if you plan on spending a long weekend at the beach. By doing this, you can help avoid flood damage due to a leak that you didn’t know about beforehand. After all, a leak can damage any part of your home – from bathrooms and kitchens to laundry rooms and even the living room; it all depends on how far the water damage can spread.
You will also want to take the time to unplug all of your expensive and valuable electronics. Everything needs electricity to run smoothly, and they will continue to feed on your home’s electrical system even when they aren’t actively in use – so this can be bad news when you go away for a few days. Even better, you can reduce the chances of an electrical fire breaking out when there is no one around to help stop it before first responders can arrive.
Put Baking Soda in Drains
Although this advice sounds strange, it works. With some vinegar mixed in, you can use it to help unclog the drains in your house. Plus the drains will smell fresher. No one wants to come home to find it stinky all over the place, so be sure to drop some baking soda into the toilet for good measure; a cup of it should suffice.
Clean Up Your Home
Finally, clean up your home. Sometimes, all of the clutter in the living room, dirty dishes piling up in the kitchen, and dirty tile and grout in the bathroom can get the best of you. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, then it’s a sign you need to get some help from professionals who can do it quickly, effectively, and provide service with a smile!
