Spring is around the corner!
Spring 2015 is around the corner or so the calendar says. Being in business for 20 years has taught me a few things most of it is common sense. One is “Yes this much snow WILL MELT” The question is will it melt slowly enough so the frozen ground is able to absorb it or will a 60 degree day paired with a deluge or rain wash it away right into the path of garages, basements and cellars?
The best way to protect your home and valuables before all this snow melts is to make sure anything stored in your basement or garage is elevated off the floor, you can accomplish this with blocks and pieces of 2 x 4’s. Raising cardboard boxes filled with memorabilia, pictures or cherished family Holiday decorations will save you the agony of having to throw these away after they become water soaked and ruined. We hope that your basement, cellar or garage does not incur any water damage, but preparing for it is the best way to keep things dry and safe. No one can predict the weather so it is better to plan ahead and play it safe.
In the unfortunate event that your basement, cellar or garage is flooded by the remaining snow.
