KEEPING YOUR PIPES WARM
Keeping your property warmer and at a constant temperature can help prevent the freezing if pipes and water leaks.
Ice can accumulate in winter months. By ensuring all pathways are clear of snow and ice with salt, this can help prevent injuries and possible liability claims again you.
MOVE AND REMOVE EXCESS SNOW
In the event of snowfall, once it starts to thaw it will create extremely wet areas. Moving piles of snow away from the foundations of your building can help. Along with this, if you have large amounts of snow on the roof of your property, hiring a professional to remove this can also prevent damage to the building.
GUTTERING IN SNOW CONDITIONS
If you have followed the guidelines regarding guttering maintenance than you should not have a problem. However we still recommend checking they are clear ready for when the snow on your roof melts. The clear gutters will help in channelling the high amount of water away from your property.
As the days are shorter during winter months, try to ensure that your property is well lit when it comes to pathways and drives.
