Are You Keeping up with Your Sump Pump to Avoid Water Damage?

Sump pumps are a great item to have in any home or business, as they help keep the structure dry by pumping water away from it. Sump pumps are especially useful during the spring months when melting snow saturates the ground and builds-up around the structure’s foundation. However, while sump pumps are a great commodity to have, they can fail from time to time, so it is essential to learn what common issues may cause sump pump failure, as this may save you time and costly repairs down the road.

Yikes! Frozen Pipes! Don’t Let Freezing Temperatures Lead to Frozen Pipes – Part II

Have you ever woken-up on a chilly winter morning and discovered the pipes in your house were frozen? You turn the knobs on the bathroom sink in frustration, hoping that water will eventually trickle out, but nothing happens. This situation is one that I experienced numerous times as a child, as the pipes in the attic would frequently freeze. While frozen pipes are something many home or business owners never want to experience, it does happen quite often here in New Hampshire (NH), as temperatures often plunge below the freezing mark and cause the water in pipes to freeze. Locations that are most prevalent to frozen pipes are attics, garages and basements, as these areas are often not heated.

Yikes! Frozen Pipes! Don’t Let Freezing Temperatures Lead to Frozen Pipes – Part I

Having frozen pipes is something that no home or business owner wants to experience, as it can lead to unsightly water damage, costly repairs and even mold growth. Although the warmth of spring is just around the corner, there is still plenty of time for Old Man Winter to throw some snow, ice and frigid temperatures our way. After all, this is New England, right? So, before you decide to pack away your thermal socks and insulated gloves, it is important to remember that your home or business can still be impacted by February’s frosty temperatures-especially waterlines and pipes.

Have a Fireplace? Here is What You Should NOT be Putting in it.

Many New Hampshire residents are staying warm this winter season by loading up their fireplace with the wood they’ve spent all season cutting, and hoping it lasts long enough to burn away the winter blues. While having a fireplace is a great way to keep your home warm during the winter season, do you know what items are safe to burn? Or better yet, what items you shouldn’t burn in your fireplace? This may seem like a very simple question for some, but for others, throwing some of the wood you’ve cut down from the woods is sufficient enough. Unfortunately, there are many types of wood that are not recommended to be burned in a fireplace, as well as other everyday items such as plastic and newspapers, as these items may cause a chimney fire or result in toxic fumes. So, before you toss the sports section of the newspaper portraying a loss for your favorite team or family photo of everyone wearing matching holiday sweaters into the fireplace, review the below guidelines on what is and isn’t recommended for you to burn.

How to Prevent a Christmas Tree Fire from Setting Your Holidays up in Flames-Part II

The holiday season is upon us once again, and it seems like just yesterday that we were barbecuing in the back yard for Memorial Day and watching fireworks on the 4th of July. Now, it’s time to pull out the artificial Christmas tree from underneath the stairs in the basement, and prepare for coming face-to-face with the in-laws once again, as they make comments on how dry the ham is or why your children are not in matching sweaters. However, while many people decorate their homes with artificial Christmas trees, over 30 million people will go out and purchase a real one.

The holiday season has crept upon us once again, and it’s now that time of year when holiday decorations liter every department store before Halloween, and Christmas cards flood our mailboxes from family members we so gratefully see but once a year. If you’re anything like me, preparing for the holiday season consists of digging out the artificial, pre-lit Christmas tree from the basement cobwebs, with an array of half-broken ornaments that you hope the cat doesn’t think are his again. However, while many people decorate their homes with an artificial Christmas tree for the holiday season, roughly 30 million people will purchase a real one.
