We advise homeowners to prepare their homes and property for the coming winter season here at Ascension General Contractors. Extreme weather can lead to power outages and disruption of communications and services. A Nashville winter storm can also be damaging to personal property and belongings.
Flooding and significant snow accumulations can also cause travel to become extremely dangerous and even deadly, so it’s essential to be prepared for the many different serious situations that can occur during winter here in Middle Tennessee.
What Are Some Essential Safety Tips That Can Help Me Get My Nashville Home Ready For Winter?
Here are some essential safety tips to help you prepare your home for the coming winter season:
- Remove dead trees, tall bushes, and broken branches around your home. These can cause injury and damage to the roof of your house if they fall during winter weather involving wind, ice, or heavy snow accumulation.
- Clean gutters and rainspouts before winter weather sets in. When the snow melts, it needs to be able to flow down your rain gutters and away from your roofing. If there is dirt and debris left in your gutters from last spring, the water will pool and begin to back up, possibly damaging even interior wall spaces in your home, and this can even lead to mold growth, causing a need for mold removal on top of the storm damage. A rain gutter full of dirt can become heavy and pull away from the building, creating another set of issues.
- Have your chimney inspected and cleaned both before and after winter to prevent chimney fires caused by soot accumulation. Your HVAC system must also be inspected, and all ducts must be clear and ready for use. Be sure that all your filters in the system are changed. If you use space heaters, ensure they are in great shape and that everyone in the house knows how to use them properly. They should never be left on if no one is in the room.
