3 Tips on how to keep your home safe from fire & water damage!

The weather is finally starting to look a bit nicer here in Toronto and with summer just around the corner many of us will be taking advantage of the great weather by going on vacation. Here are a few tips on what you can do to help keep your home safe from fire and water damage while on vacation.

Turn Off all the water supply lines:

If you are going to be away from home for an extended period of time, we highly recommend turning off the main water supply. You don’t want to come home to an overflowing toilet or a burst pipe after a relaxing vacation. There are tons of different water related problems that can occur in your home that need to be dealt with as soon as possible in order to avoid serious damage. Many of these problems can be avoided by simply turning off the main water supply in your home.

Unplug all unused electronics:

Unplugging unused electronics in your home while your gone is always a good idea to prevent any fires from starting. Unplugging unused electronics also has the added benefit of helping you save on your energy bill. Having electronics plugged in when you aren't home still uses some energy.

Check your roof, gutters also doors & windows:

Before leaving your home take a short walk around your house and make sure that your gutters are free from any debris, sticks or leaves that may be blocking the inlet of the downspout and stopping water. Blocked gutters are a common cause for water flooding and can be avoided by quickly checking your gutters.

These 3 simple tips can save you a lot of money and a lot of headache. Often insurance companies won’t cover you if you have a burst pipe or any other form of water damage while on vacation and away from home since you don't realize until it's too late. We highly encourage you to have a friend or neighbor check on your home every once in a while if you are on vacation, so if a problem does occur you can take care of it immediately.

We hope that with these tips you will be able to avoid a disaster while you are on vacation and have some more peace of mind. If you do experience some water damage or fire damage in your Toronto home feel free to give GTA Restoration a call, our team can be on site and ready to assist you 24/7 no matter what day of the year.
