What Categories Are In Demand During The Wet Fall Season?

During the rainy season, homeowners face trouble with waterlogging, dampness, clogging and other such issues. Based on the problems they face, here are some service requests you can expect during this time:

  • Mold and Mildew Removal: Damp weather can cause mold or mildew to appear, especially in places that don’t get much sun. If left untreated, it can cause more damage to the home as well as the residents so homeowners are quick to address issues like this when the rain pours.
  • Floor Renovation: Old flooring can also damage in excessive rains and expose homeowners to risky situations. To stay on top of things, it’s best to market floor repair services so homeowners can get in touch with you easily.
  • Roofing and Ceiling: One of the most common problems during the rainy season is leakage and damage to roofs and ceilings. A leaky ceiling or a roof with a hole in it is an emergency repair that homeowners will not ignore. If your company offers roofing and ceiling services, it’s a good idea to be more responsive to these services as homeowners will be looking to hire quickly. You can also upgrade your profile details to include chimney repairs and inspections if you offer these services.
  • Waterproofing Decks: As our decks are exposed to all the elements of nature, homeowners may find their decks withering with time. Rains can also make the decks slippery, making them highly unsafe. So before the rains set in, homeowners are likely to look for pros who offer waterproofing services for decks.
  • Gutter Cleaning: Rains during Fall – these three words always bring up images of clogged gutters and eavestroughs with dry leaves and other debris. Even with full checklists for the jobs, some people often miss this one and pros offering gutter cleaning can expect calls for such jobs.
  • Basement Waterproofing: Homeowners are often unaware of the safety and regular maintenance requirements of basements. That’s why in heavy rains, we often see basement flooding issues. It’s a good idea to be prepared for basement waterproofing and flooding jobs during the rainy season.
  • Electrical Problems: Rains and thunderstorms can cause unexpected electrical problems and blackouts, which can bring life to a stop. As these issues are risky to tamper with by novices, homeowners are likely to reach out to licensed pros for such services.
  • Tree Removal Services: Often during heavy rains and thunderstorms, large trees block driveways or fall on roofs. In these situations, homeowners have to hire licensed pros with the proper equipment like cranes to remove these fallen trees and branches. If you do have the equipment and the license to operate, this is another service you can offer to homeowners in their time of need.
