How to protect your home in the winter
Thursday, January 31st, 2019 by Sabrina Hunter
Don't forget to protect the inside of your house before the next winter storm:
Leaks inside the home -Make sure your gutters are clear from debris and objects. Clogged gutters can cause a back up of ice preventing the flow of melting snow. This can cause leaks inside the home as the ice starts to melt. Insulate the pipes - Keep your pipes warm in certain areas of the house lacking heat such as the basement, attic and in the back of cabinets. Install a carbon-monoxide detector - Poor ventilated heating devices such as furnaces, wood burning stoves, charcoal or propane- burning appliances and generators can cause carbon monoxide poisoning. It is advised to place a carbon monoxide detector on all floors of your home. Emergency kits - It is recommended to keep one kit in your car and another one in your house. Stock flashlights, extra batteries, portable battery charger for phones and jump-starting the vehicle.
