Time to Winterize your Teays Valley WV Home

 

The last of the warm autumn days have left and winter is about upon us. If you haven't already, now is the time to prepare your Teays Valley home for the winter season.

I have listed some simple steps you may want to do, before the snow and cold weather sets in, to help protect your largest assest.

  • Cover or take inside any patio furniture. Now is a good time to oil the nuts Home covered in snowand bolts to prevent rust and insure easy removal if the need should arise.
  • While you have the WD-40 out, you should go ahead and oil door hinges and mailbox doors. Doing it at a regular time each year will help you to remember as well as prevent rust.
  • Drain water out of birdbaths, fountains, and pools. If you have removed any plants from their pots, remember to turn them upside down if they do not have a drain. Water that has collected could freeze and bust your flower pots.
  • It may not quite be cold enough to turn the heat on, but it is better to check that everything is in working order than to be sitting in the cold on a subzero day.
  • Stock up on salt for your driveway and sidewalk. Weather can be wacky in Teays Valley/Charleston area, but you will have it when needed, and if not, it doesn't expire so it won't go to waste.
  • Take advantage of all the leave-less trees and trim branches away from your house.
  • Lastly, check your fire alarms and carbon monixde dectector. Replace the batteries if you haven't already done that in the last 12 months. The cost of a battery is not worth your life.
