1/10/2020 (Permalink)

Snow fall is not uncommon in New Jersey during the winter months. Snow can cause significant water damage to your home. Here are a list of some of the ways snow can cause water damage 

  • Weakens the Foundation
  • Damages Floors
  • Damages Walls
  • Damages Furniture
  • Damages Appliances and Electronics
  • Damages Items Sitting on the Floor
  • Can Cause Electrical Hazards
  • Promotes Mold and Mildew Growth

You can follow these tips to help prevent water damage to your home during snow 

  • Remove snow from around the foundation and away from the home. 
  • Remove any snow away from the home that has fallen off the roof.
  • Remove snow from around downspouts so melting snow on the roof can drain away from the home. 
  • Place sandbags around the foundation. 
  • Keep gutters and downspouts clear of leaves, branches, and debris. 
  • Get your basement and foundation walls waterproofed. 
  • Increase the grade of landscaping around the home.
