Snow is only the beginning. Here are a few tips to keep your property safe after the flakes stop falling.:
Make sure your thermostat is set to at least 60 degrees, even if no one is home.
After the snowfall, use a roof rake to clear at least two feet behind your gutters to prevent ice dams.
PREVENT PIPE FREEZE
When the high temps for the day are below freezing, be sure to keep your faucets dripping slowly to prevent your pipes from freezing.
MELT GUTTER ICE
Fill old nylons with calcium chloride (NOT sodium chloride!) and lay them across your gutters. They will melt the ice and safely drain water off your roof.
WATCH FOR DOWN TREES & POWER LINES
Strong wind and heavy snow often result in dangerous down trees and power lines. Never attempt to clear debris near damaged electrical components. Always wait for any electrical hazards to be removed professionally before proceeding with the cleanup process. Remember to contact 24 Services for help with any tree removal, tarping, and board up needs.
