Winter is approaching
SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville would like to remind everyone that the upcoming winter season will be a very wet one indeed! With the rain we had last year, we expect to get about just as much this year! That being said, our franchise would like you all to take precautions necessary to have a safe and joyful winter!
1. Double-paned windows - remove the screens and install storm windows to ensure that the heat stays in and the cold stays out. If that doesn't work for your budget, try picking up an inexpensive plastic-film sheet kit from your local hardware store. This should help keep your home nice and warm!
2. Remember to protect your pipes from freezing this winter! The most susceptible pipes in your home will be located in attics, crawl spaces, basements, and near outer walls. You can try adding more insulation to them to keep them from freezing.
3. Make sure tree and bush branches are away from your home. With the rain and possible snow coming our way, the branches can be so weighed down that they'll break and fall onto your roof.
