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:



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). 



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.



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.
