Getting Your Lawrence County Home READY for the Winter
At SERVPRO® our motto is to stay "READY for whatever happens" so when fire, water, or molds strike your property – all we must do is respond. Although we are the disaster recovery leaders, there are things you can do on your end to prevent a disaster from occurring. With winter well on it’s way, we recommend that you do your part to ensure your property is not only READY for whatever happens, but prepared to brace the cold season coming.
5 tips to prepare you home for winter:
- Pipe Protection – water expands as it freezes and this could result in frozen, cracked and even burst pipes. To prevent a pipe disaster at your property be sure to drain water from outdoor faucets. Also, be attentive to the pipes that may be unheated areas of your property and protect them with insulation to prevent an incident.
- Monitor the heat – BEFORE the winter begins, be sure that your heating system is working properly. After the cold air comes in calls for furnace repairs increase dramatically. Check your system for functionality early to avoid a long wait.
- Stock up on cold weather essentials – it’s always better to be prepared for the unexpected. Be prepared for a power outage with an alternative source of heat like a fireplace or wood-burning stove.
Winter is coming and hopefully your plan for preparation is too! Use these tips to get your property and yourself ready and if all else fails, we are here to help if you need us. Our winter storm and water mitigation services will make any damage you incur, “Like it never even happened.”
