Protecting your house from a winter storm

12/15/2021 (Permalink)

Snow is a beautiful thing to watch fall but large amounts of snow can be dangerous to one's property. Like any natural weather situation, you should always be prepared for any snow storm damage that could happen. Being prepared can not only help your property but people living on that property. Here are 5 tips and tricks to keep your house safe during a snowstorm:

  1. Keep your exterior vents clear of snow and ice to avoid your furnace from overheating and shutting off. 
  2. Keep your roof clear of snow to avoid a roof cave from heavy snowfalls. (Tip to remove it is to buy a roof snow rake)
  3. Keep a snow shovel or snow blower to clear out your driveway and walkway paths to make a safe entrance out of your house.
  4. If your power goes out and the heating stops working be careful of your pipes from freezing.

Top 3 causes of Electrical Fires

11/29/2021 (Permalink)

When living in Rhode Island we want you to make sure you know what electrical fires are and the top causes for them, so you can protect your home in the future.

Cords and Electrical circuit overloads

The most common one is cords and electrical circuit overloads. It is common to have many cord strips around the house and most of those cord strips have all 5-6 outlets with a cord plugged into them. This is why it is important to make the effort to never overload your outlets.

Light fixture

Another cause is lighting fixtures, both caused by the light bulb or by items near the light fixture. One thing that causes light bulb fires is when you install the wrong light bulb or watt size. The other cause is when putting materials such as fabrics or cloth near a lamp causing overheating.

Space heaters

As we roll into winter, many people have a space heater they use in their Rhode Island home. Be conscious of where you place your space heater and watch its surroundings, also make sure the cord isn't plugged into a cord strip as well.

Preventing water damage outside your home | Exeter,RI

11/9/2021 (Permalink)

Here are 3 simple tips and tricks to ensure less water damage outside your home.

  • Inspect your roof and chimney.

The roof is the most important part of your house. It is important to check out your roof to make sure you don’t have any damaged, loose, or missing shingles or tiles. Another component on the roof is the chimney. The chimney receives more damage than the roof because it stands taller. Making sure your chimney has no cracks or broken masonry work will help prevent possible leakage.

  • Maintain trees and vegetation.

Having a beautiful lawn with bushes and trees is lovely, but keep in mind that plants and trees can cause damage to your house if not maintained. Make sure to minimize vegetation near utility pipes and make sure roots don’t damage your pipes and water line.

  • Clean gutters and downspouts.

Gutters will help collect all the water from your roof. Over time, your gutters will fill up with leaves, seeds, and other debris causing a blockage. It is important to clean your gutters and downspouts to ensure the water can flow easily.
