April is National Home Inspection Month
April showers bring May flowers….or flooded crawl spaces and basements! Seasonal water damage isn’t as obvious as you may think. It doesn’t take a severe flood to do water damage to your home just increased saturation. April is the perfect time for a spring maintenance inspection. Spring’s rainy season can cause excessive household moisture exposure. One of the hazards of excessive moisture in a home is the growth of mold.
Follow these tips to keep the water out of your home.
- Clear gutters and downspouts of debris ensuring that water will be pulled from the roof and your home.
- Look for damaged shingles, a warped window pane or cracked foundation mortar – spots where moisture could seep into your home.
- Drainage and slopes away from the home’s foundation.
These tips are intended to be a first line of defense against the development of mold in your home. Following these steps – and reducing the amount of indoor moisture and humidity in your home – will help safeguard against the threat of mold.
Identify potential maintenance issues now before they become major repairs, but more importantly, family health issues. Call Premier Home Inspection today to test your home for Spring Moisture. 615-481-7293 or www.premierinmspectiontn.com
