ServiceMaster of Portland is happy to say that spring is on its way. The winter rain, wind, and flooding that can cause water damage and mold is nearly over. However, spring also brings rain and wind to the Portland metro area.
Keep your home or business looking great with some spring cleaning tips. Keeping up with your exterior maintenance will help keep repair costs low.
Visually check the exterior of your home for obvious wear and tear from water, wind, and storm damage that could have taken place this winter. Check to make sure that your gutters are draining properly. If damaged, replace or repair gutters and down spouts to make sure the flow of water is away from your foundation.
Eves, windows, and siding should be visually inspected and repairs should be made when the weather allows. A good coating of paint and caulk helps to protect against water damage.
Check around your foundation for cracks and any place where water intrusion could occur. Poor foundation draining can cause crawlspace or basement flooding.
As always, be sure to use proper safety precautions when performing inspections and repairs. If you need assistance with any water, mold or storm damage, call the professionals at ServiceMaster of Portland at 503-234-0707.
