Let it snow!

YES! Let it snow! Winter is now here. When the low temperatures,snow and ice breeze in it is important to
monitor your plumbing systems for freezing and keep unnecessary weight from your roof and gutters.

Here are a few tips to consider courtesy of Residential Renovations:

  • Remove Large Icicles from the gutters.
  • Monitor Snow Build-Up on the roof. Excessive snow pack can cause roof damage.
  • Keep Sidewalks and Driveways clear of snow and ice. Using salt or sand in these key areas can prevent water from freezing in small cracks and causing bigger cracks.
  • Clean Garbage Disposal Blades by grinding up some small ice cubes and/or lemon skins.
  • Clean Ovens and Ranges.
  • Check the Circuits  in your electrical system by turning them off and then back on.
  • Check for Drips and Other Leaks from Plumbing Fixtures by inspecting areas around and below all faucets and fixtures.
