As temperatures begin to rise, melting snow could cause severe water damage to your home if you are not properly prepared.

To protect your home and valuables from snow melt, do the following:

    • Remove snow around your home’s foundation, as snow melt can seep through windows and cause water damage if it gets into your basement.
    • Keep snow and other material out of the street, as it can clog drainage points as melting occurs.
    • Clear excess snow from your roof and downspouts.
    • Use sandbags wherever possible in order to prevent water from entering your home.

If water begins to pool in your yard, safely use a pumping system to drain it away from your property.
