Preparing for Winter Storms: Weston, MA
Clear out Gutters
Leaves have continued to fall since the first snow this year. Make sure your gutters are clear of leaves and other debris before the deep freeze sets in and prevents removal.
Protect Your Pipes
Water damages are the leading cause of phone calls from Weston, Mass. to our franchise. In the winter, broken pipes are responsible for many of these losses. Protect your pipes and be sure someone checks your home for you when you are out of town.
Create a Ready Plan
Taking a few moments to create a plan using our Ready Plan app will help ensure you are able to respond quickly and efficiently to any loss in your home. You can also share a digital app with those who check your home for you, so they can take emergency measures on your behalf when you are not available.
Clear Storm Drains and Hydrants
The DPW cannot be everywhere every day. When you see a problem, like pooling water around a storm drain or a buried hydrant in your neighborhood, you can help protect your home by resolving the issue.
Keep Your Home Dry
The key to preventing microbial growth and protecting your home’s building materials is controlling moisture. If you should suffer a roof leak or burst pipe this winter, be sure to call SERVPRO of Waltham/Weston/Watertown/Wayland to ensure your home is cleaned and dried quickly. We are committed to controlling your costs and getting you back to normal as soon as possible.
