It is the time of year where Mother Nature can be at her worst. Frozen pipes, downed wires, trees falling, all of these can be dangerous to your home.
With this being one of our coldest winters in many years, Interim Homes wants to make sure you are armed with tips to keep your home safe. We found a few tips from The Weather Channel that we found useful. For instance, it is important that during heavy snow to be aware of blowing snow accumulating on your roof, in your window wells, and in outside stairwells. Not only could the weight cause a roof collapse, but once the snow melts, it is possible to experience flooding. It is also important to be aware of active water pipes inside and outside of your home. The Weather Channel suggests ensuring that pipes are surrounded by proper insulation and are not exposed to cold air. It is important to keep in mind the pipes that are not readily accessible, like ones in attics or crawlspaces, or even pipes near cable or telephone wires that enter the house through holes drilled in from the outside.
