Protect Your Home from Winter
1. Clean Gutters and Install Gutter Guards
With the ebb and flow of snow throughout the season, our gutters are under a lot of pressure to remove runoff from the roof and keep your home dry and safe. Remembering to keep your gutters clean from debris and icicles in the winter can prevent damage to your roof and the risk of leaking inside. Gutterglove Gutter Guards are extremely helpful in protecting your gutters and roof during the winter and Bubbles can install them on your home.
2. Keep Pipes Warm
When the weather gets colder, so do our homes. Unfortunately, freezing temperatures can be detrimental to your pipes. To prevent your pipes from freezing during the winter months, ensure that the interior temperature is regulated and accessible to chilling pipes. When temperatures drop, try to leave faucets dripping so that a constant stream of water pressure is active.
3. Chimney Sweep
Throughout the winter, we use our fireplaces much more as an aid to heating our homes. When our chimneys are not properly cared for, the risk of soot buildup and fires increases. Cleaning your chimney and fireplace at least once a year, prior to frequent use, can protect your home from any serious problems.
4. Insulate Windows & Doors
One of the best ways to cut back on your heating bill in the winter is to insulate your windows and doors. Your wallet will thank you because you will lower energy costs and still feel warm. Weather strips, caulk, and insulated window film can all get the job done practically and affordably. At the end of the season, call Bubbles to help get your windows cleaned and back to sparkling.
