Ready, Set..... Winter is Coming!

Get your property ready for the winter:

1.    Clean out your gutters – clogged gutters cause ice dams

2.   Clean up your yard and store your outdoor furniture

3.   Have your furnace serviced and fill up gas/oil tanks

4.   Have your chimney cleaned and make sure your fireplace/woodstove are in working order

5.   If you have your kitchen sink against an exterior wall; make sure the cabinets doors are left open for air circulation so that the pipes do not freeze

6.   If you rent your property: leave a detailed list of how to open and close the house, where to keep the heat at, your local contractors with telephone numbers and emergency contact information

7.   Keep all beds and sofas away from baseboard heaters

8.   Change the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors

9.   Have a shovel and salt/sand near your front entrance

10.                Have flashlights/candles and extra batteries handy in case of power outages

11. There has been a shortage of firewood, call your local supplier and make arrangements for next year
