Protecting Your Property: Post-Winter

As winter comes to an end and the weather returns to a warmer temperature, your home is likely to go through some changes. Frozen pipes are one of the most common forms of damage that can happen during the winter months to your home, but many other damaging occurrences can happen too and the team at STOP Restoration is more than happy to give you some easy and beneficial tips on how to help your home return to its normal state after months of cold and stormy weather!

1. One of the best and easiest things you can do for your home is to check on circuits that may have been turned off or out of use during these winter months. Sometimes it is easier not to use certain circuits and save money by having them off while you are not currently using them, so making sure you check your breaker and any damage from these circuits is extremely important to the structure of your home. Luckily, our experienced team can assist you if you do find damage due to electrical problems if they arise!

2. Another detrimental aspect to de-winterizing your home is to double-check all of your plumbing fixtures, including sinks, toilets, showers, etc. After months of this freezing weather, frozen pipes are likely to cause a rupture within the plumbing of your house, so it is important to check everything out before turning on the main water supply. From these ruptures, mold can occur and fester over time, which means you’ll need our team to come in and remove this hazardous growth from your home as soon as possible!

3. One last easy tip we can offer you as you prepare to de-winterize your property is to check the stability and clutter of your gutters. If you allow your gutters to become overrun with debris, this can cause serious damage to your home and become an even bigger pain for you and your wallet! Leaves and other major debris can clog up your gutters, so make sure you make them a priority and get them cleaned out!

As always, our team has your best interest and safety at heart. We will always be on standby for you and your family in the chance that, due to storms and long months of wear and tear on your home, you need us for a restoration job!
