Spring flood alert!
With snow packed all around our homes, rain in the forecast could cause flooding in your garage or basement. One cubic foot of packed snow will melt into two to three gallons of water. Take some time today to prevent damage… elevate electrical components, move furniture/valuables.
Moving forward, consider installing a sump pump. In the fall, clear downspouts and drains. In the winter, manage snow piles strategically: Make sure not to shovel snow toward the foundation or crease piles close by – pile snow downhill from the house.
