Look up to save money!

Looking up can save money and prevent very expensive repairs. Before buying a property or when conducting regular semi-annual or annual maintenance inspections around your property, follow the advice of Bakersfield Property Management and do not forget to look up! Even if you are a tenant, you need to conduct regular inspections which includes checking the inside and outside of the property.

Inside, look for signs of cracks or stains on or near ceilings which could indicate water damage caused by a leak. Leaks can damage the property and cause dangerous mold that can spread quickly and cause health problems. Home Insurance Guide explains that homeowner’s policies “do not cover mold or fungus damage, so it’s important to identify it quickly and remove it.”

If your home or investment property has an attic, check there for signs of water damage from roof leaks. Check for signs of rodents or other creatures that may have burrowed their way in. Seal any holes and make sure insulation is still in good condition.

Look up on the outside of your home for signs of needed repairs. Make sure gutters are in proper working order. Clean gutters and make sure water can flow freely through downspouts. Make sure this is no rotted area around the home which could be tell-tale signs of a leak. Invest in a professional to check your roof for missing shingles, damage or leaks and to make any necessary repairs. Handy American stresses the importance of contracting with a well-established, reliable roofing contractor to do roofing repairs or replacement.

Consult the services of a trained professional to inspect areas you cannot get to or are not trained to inspect both inside and outside your home. When you regularly look up, you are saving money and avoiding costly repairs and potential health problems.
