Winter is almost here, and it will be time for the Holidays and skiing, but is your home prepared for the winter storms? Winter storms are no stranger to any of us, but sometimes, we loosen up on our preparations and cut corners. Cutting corners can lead to winter weather damages to your property. Below, Disaster Cleanup services will discuss a few ways to better prepare your home for the winter storms ahead!
Checking your roof should be at the top of your list. Any missing shingles or damages should be repaired before the winter weather sets in. It is also a good idea to check your gutters. Clogged gutters are the leading cause of ice dams. Ice dams can cause severe water damages to your home.
Your attic and basement should be checked over for any damages. If there are any holes, repair them as soon as possible. This is not only a way for water to get into your home but rodents. Rodents can quickly destroy your home.
If you have exposed pipes, it is time to insulate them. Insulating your pipes could save you from frozen or burst pipes this Winter. Winter storms can cause temps to dip lower than average, causing more freezing.
Being aware of the weather is one of the best things you can do. If you know a winter storm is coming, you can better prepare your home. If you know temperatures are going to be colder than usual, make sure your heat is on.
The above simple steps could save you from winter storm disasters! If you do have any winter storm damages give us a call. We handle all types of disasters and damages!
