Winterized Home in Golden?
Water damage can happen at any time of the year, and making sure your home is winterized may help prevent water damage from damaging your home. SERVPRO® of Golden/Wheat Ridge/Evergreen responds to water damage emergencies every winter and offers these tips for winterizing the outside of your home from the Insurance Information Institute:
- Clean out gutters. Remove leaves, sticks, and other debris from gutters so melting snow and ice can flow freely. This can prevent ice damming, a condition where water cannot drain through the gutters and instead seeps into the house, causing water to drip from the ceiling and walls.
- Install gutter guards. Available in most hardware and home stores, gutter guards prevent debris from entering the gutter and interfere with water flow away from the house and into the ground.
- Trim trees and remove dead branches. Ice, snow, and wind could cause weak trees or branches to break and damage your home or car or injure someone walking by your property.
- Seal cracks in holes in outside walls and foundations. Use caulking to protect water pipes and ensure that skylights and other roof openings have proper weather stripping to prevent snowmelt from seeping in.
