November brings the beginning of our cold Minnesota winters, and with it comes the responsibility to safeguard your home against the harsh elements. As temperatures drop and snowflakes start to fall, begin home winterization to prepare for a safe, dry, and cozy winter season.
At Green Clean we have compiled a concise list of November winterization tips for your Minneapolis home and proactive steps you can take to safeguard yourself, and your loved ones throughout the entire winter season.
Check for any drafts around windows and doors. Seal them with weatherstripping or caulk to prevent cold air from entering and warm air from escaping.
Protect your plumbing by insulating exposed pipes to prevent freezing and potential water damage.
Remove leaves and debris from your gutters to prevent ice dams and water damage to your roof and foundation.
Have your heating system professionally serviced to ensure it runs efficiently and safely throughout the winter.
Assemble an emergency kit with essential supplies, including blankets, flashlights, and non-perishable food, in case of power outages.
If you have a fireplace, schedule a chimney inspection and cleaning to reduce the risk of chimney fires.
Have your snow shovels, salt, and snowblower ready for quick and efficient snow removal.
Trim tree branches near your home and clear pathways to prevent winter storm damage.
