November is Nigh

November is Nigh

Written by: Adrienne B


The air is getting crisper & the days are getting shorter. Now is a perfect time to take preventative measures for the safety of your home & your family before we enter the depths of this winter’s chill. Here are 3 helpful hints ServiceMaster would like to provide you with:


 


DEDICATION TO INSULATION!


Perhaps for the 2015 winter, check your insulation to make sure your attic air is cold & soffits are free of debris. This will help prevent ice damming. Your attic insulation should be about 30 cm (or 12 inches). 


 


GET THE 411 ON YOUR CO2 DETECTOR!


Be sure to check/change if need be, the batteries in your smoke & CO2 detectors. Some use each time the clock goes ahead or backward as a reminder to check- this means November 1st 2015.


 


BE NICE & CLEAR THE ICE!


Not only is it wise idea to clear any ice & snow off your walk ways for your family, but it is also considerate for those who may be on your property. Although it may feel like a pain to shovel away that slippery debris- it’s much less of a pain then a visit to your chiropractor.
