Is Your Home Ready for Vacation?
How do you know your home is going to be protected while you're away on vacation? Taking the precautionary steps to avoid a water or fire damage is the key to avoiding an accident while you're away.
Here are some of the steps to take:
- Shut off gas and water at the meter, supply tank or appliances
- Turn off the water valves to washing machines, sinks, and the dishwasher
- Check your smoke detectors to ensure they are working properly
- Adjust your thermostat to 75-80 degrees, which should help control usage.
Unfortunately, our team at SERVPRO of Chesterfield has had customers who have returned home after their week-long vacation to find their house is flooded. We want to encourage everyone to take these steps to cover your bases and avoid a disaster!
