No-one wants to come home to a water damage that results in having your home furnishings destroyed, having carpet or wood flooring removed as well as sheet rock and other affected materials.

The weather forecast for this winter is supposed to be harsh in Southeastern Minnesota. The forecast is for a 3-4 week period of harsh, bone chilling cold. Those of us in the water and fire mitigation business this means broken or burst pipes. 

There are certain things that you can do to help prepare your home for winter and the cold weather that is forecast. 

SERVPRO of Rochester recommends:

  1. Remove all hoses from the outside water faucet. 
  2. Remove all leaves, sticks and other debris from gutters. 
  3. Check around your home to make sure that the grade is flowing away from your home. 
  4. Inspect your roof for any blown away shingles or holes in your home. Animals have been known to make this possible.
  5. Change the batteries in your smoke alarm and CO detectors.
