Scary Signs You Need to Give Your Home Some TLC
October 9, 2018 | Barb Huntley
Odor– A lingering smell in your home can come from a variety of things. From mold, dust, plumbing to ventilation problems, that stinky odor can be a lot more harmful than you think. Get to the bottom of what is causing the bad smell. Have your plumbing and ventilation systems checked. Be on the lookout for signs of mold and excessive dust build up. Did you know your carpet and walls actually can absorb odors? That means years of odor may be lingering underneath these surfaces. Have your walls washed and carpeted cleaned.
 
Fire Hazards– Wiring issues, loose outlets, and cluttered kitchens can all spark a flame. Inspect your home for all these items to make sure you don’t have a fire hazard right under your nose. After those items are secure, check your smoke detectors to make sure they have proper working batteries. We also suggest investing in a fire extinguisher and a fire blanket – it’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your safety.
 
Mold– Mold can be extremely dangerous if left untreated in your house because they can become toxic. The best ways to prevent mold are to keep confined spaces clean and dry to prevent the build of bacteria and dampness. If you are unsure about any area of your house that may have mold hire a professional come in to inspect the area.
 
Allergies– If your allergies seem worse than ever, even when peak allergy season has passed, the culprit could be right under your roof. Homes are a breeding ground for dust. Dust build up makes allergies much worse. If you are suffering from allergies all year round you need to invest in dehumidifiers and a professional carpet cleaning. In fact, we suggest hiring a professional to come in and clean your home once a month. Your health is worth the investment. Professional cleaners will clean spots you never even think of and throughly get rid of dust.
