It’s that time of year here in here in New Hampshire (NH) when the temperatures are low, and the heat is turned up high. Frozen ponds give way to mid-day ice hockey matches, and Sunday afternoons are filled with seasonal sports and get-togethers. Here in the Granite State, many home and business owners may forget that not only do the chilly winter months bring-forth frosty air, but also frozen pipes. Keeping a simple “to-do” list of seasonal tasks can assist home and business owners during the busy holiday season and aid in the prevention of an unexpected pipe burst or winter issue. Keep family and friends your priority this holiday season, not the need for cleaning flooded buildings.

As the deep freeze of winter sets in, it is important to keep in mind the dangers of not only water damage but also mold after flooding. It can be easy to write this off as something that happens more in the spring but property damage from water in the winter can be extremely high depending on harshness of weather patterns. Large storms, such as Nor’easters, can dump several feet of snow in New Boston and the surrounding New Hampshire communities. Power outages, ice dams and frozen pipes result in millions of dollars in property damage every year. Many people are unaware of these facts and thus don’t prepare for flooding in the winter. Add mold to the equation, and it is very easy to feel overwhelmed by the situation. This is why it is important to have a plan and a service in mind to call to take care of the problem.
With the winter months quickly approaching, Londonderry, New Hampshire (NH) residents are preparing for the chilly temperatures by draining sprinkler systems and hoses, storing away lawn decorations and prepping heating systems for their upcoming use. To keep warm during the winter months, many NH residents have woodstoves in their homes that are equipped with cords of wood to help maintain a steady indoor temperature. Although woodstoves are a great way to heat a home, did you know that they can produce a messy soot-build up that can damage nearby furniture and personal items? Winters in NH can be overwhelming. Firing up the woodstove for the season shouldn’t be. Don’t let removing soot damage become a problem for you this winter.
