Planning In Advance For Future Home Emergencies

The following was contributed by guest author  Kevin Bennett

Are You a Gambler?

Colorado is a beautiful state. Sand dunes to the south are balanced by mountains stretching the length of the territory. To the east are vast plains, and as you travel the I-25 corridor, there are no shortage of activities to entertain you. It’s no wonder this state has grown dramatically in the last ten years, and is continuing to expand.

Many people are moving to this colorful, temperate region and starting families. But for any family moving to a new home, it is important to reach “cruising altitude” before finding your routine. What does this mean? You’ve got to hope for the best and expect the worst.

Plumbing Considerations

Hope that when the year’s hottest days come, your AC works. Expect it to malfunction from time to time and have a technician on file should you need to call for assistance. Hope the year’s coolest blizzard won’t freeze the pipes and cause them to break, but expect this will happen at some point.

According to, “Plumbing has become an essential part of every household and business. Not only can it shut down your business, but it can also disrupt your daily routine at home.” That is, should something go awry with the plumbing solutions in a house or business.

However, if your pipes do freeze due to age or something similar, you could be in for a real upset. Oftentimes what happens when pipes break during a deep freeze is that the water shoots out in a stream until it becomes frozen. This can cause severe water damage which is very expensive. You will need experienced professionals.

Pest Problems

Another interior situation worth planning for involves pests. They’re going to come at some point. It could be a moth year, perhaps spiders breed out of control in your cellar—maybe you’ve got woodpecker problems. But all these are more manageable, in some ways, than bed bugs.

As points out, “The biggest problem with bed bugs is that they spread quickly and easily. A single bed bug could attach itself to the clothing of a person who is visiting a home or place of business with a bed bug infestation and be taken home.”

Nobody wants to be the family who brings a bed bug infestation to the local school. And nobody wants to sleep with these little pests leaping, jumping and causing havoc in the night. Extermination could very well become necessary, and having an agency on-hand who is known to do a good, affordable, professional job makes common sense.

Landscaping And Exterior Maintenance

The final part of home ownership you want to pay close attention to involves the outside of your home. You’re going to want to do roofing work eventually, it may be time to re-paint the walls, you might want to put in a new deck, and gardening is always something worth pursuing.

There are many aspects of home ownership that new homeowners forget to consider. Finding the proper landscaping agency comes to mind; this can be important for general aesthetic, as well as for assistance in an emergency. What if a storm knocks a tree over in your yard; or worse yet, pushes a bough through a bedroom window?

Colorado gets some surprising winter and summer storms. If you don’t have a plan in place, you could be playing catch-up and may see diminished property value. So plan for home emergencies in advance by determining what your needs may be, and finding adequate agencies according to those needs.
