Written By: The Sprinkles of Style Team
The Sprinkles of Style team is back with a brand new interior / home post and this time, it's all about the problems your home can face during the Spring season and how to deal with them - enjoy! 🙂
Yep - can you believe it's March now? That means that it's now officially Spring time and even though it might not feel like it just yet - it's the season of daffodils and Easter eggs - horray!
Of course, like every season - Spring brings a long a whole range of household problems and it's something that we should all be aware of and something that we need to know how to look out for so in this post, the Sprinkles of Style team have shared a variety of things which can occur during the spring months and how to take care of it all.
For everything that you should know about the most common problems which a household can face during the Spring season (and knowing how to deal with the issues) make sure you keep reading the article.
Pests can be a serious problem
In the winter months, most pests hibernate, which means that they don't tend to cause too many problems for us.
However, as the weather begins to warm up in the spring, pests wake up and begin to cause problems.
From beetles to rodents and pesky insects - as it gets warmer, the pests come 'alive' again. (Eww)
The issue with this of course is that they begin to look for places to move to, to build their new nests for the season and this is why it can be a serious issue during the Spring (and summer months) so you need to make sure you're always keeping a check around your home.
The best thing you can do is to make sure that you always keep a look out for any signs so that if you do spot anything different or expect an infestation - you can call in the experts who will help you deal with the issue as quickly and as effectively as possible.
If it's something which you do expect, things can also be prevented so it's worth getting in touch with people and asking for quotes and advice too.
Clogged gutters and drains can cause problems
Clogged gutters can cause water to overflow onto your roof and walls which causes cracks to appear and also causes a lot of damage to your home.
While clogged drains can then lead to overflowing and burst pipes due to the pressure - Bothe are really serious problems which should be treated with and dealt with as quickly as possible.
Clogged drains are a little easier to fix - it's just a case of climbing up a ladder and removing the dirt and debris yourself - make sure you've got someone with you to hold the ladder but again, you can call for an expert to help with the situation.
On the other hand, when it comes to clogged drains, you will need the help of blocked drain experts as they will ensure that the problem has been dealt with effectively, safely and quickly.
Ideally, as soon as you notice any issues in your home, you need to call in the experts who will be able to help you deal with the problem as quickly as possible and to hopefully make sure it won't happen again or cause more damage.
Flooding can be an issue
If your home is at risk of flooding, it's essential that you make sure your home is protected as much as possible so you don't end up with a home that's damaged beyond repair.
It's happened before and it's something which we see on the news so it's always better to be prepared than sorry at a later stage.
If a flood does hit, the most important thing you can do is make sure you're safe - store any essential belongings somewhere safe (if you can) but overall, your safety is the most important thing.
You can deal with household repairs later.
When it comes to recovering your home from flood damage, while you can deal with the clean up yourself - more often than not, it’s better to call in the experts as they will be able to help you and make sure that everything is done safely.
After all, your home is something that you cherish but at the same time - you really don't want to be risking your safety.
If you aren't sure about different things and what to look out for after a flood - call around and ask people for advice.
Property cracking can have serious consequences
The cold winter causes havoc everywhere and it can also cause cracks to appear in your property - you might not notice this until later on in the year however experts will be able to spot this and help you get your home ready for constant change in weather temperatures - protecting against cracking too.
When it comes to the lovely Spring months, make sure you check your home as it's extremely important - don't forget checking outside your home, around the paving for any cracks too.
Think of a household crack like a pothole you see in the roads - they occur in the same way and cause major issues - some can be really serious which is why it’s so important to be aware of them - if you’re unsure what to look for, take the time to do some research on google or yet again - call an expert who'll be able to offer advice and guidance too.
(Google knows everything 🙂 )
So as soon as you notice any cracks to your home’s exterior, it’s essential that you act fast and have them dealt with before things get worse.
