Preparing for a Quick thaw!

Well we finally have some decent weather! Thank goodness. Unfortunately it looks like we are going to have a quick thaw this year....starting immediately!

With a quick thaw there is an increased risk of flooding. Here are some tips on what to do to prevent issues for you and your home!

Shovel snow away from the house & Clear window wells

Just to be safe....move valuables to higher ground! :)

Ensure downspouts are clear of ice and that the extensions are on /down ensuring the water runs AWAY from the foundation

Test your sump pump! Add enough water to the sump pit to engage the float. Also check the sump discharge pipe outside. Ensure the water is flowing freely and away from the house.
