March Hints Tips & Reminders

Some Spring Home Service Reminders

With spring right around the corner, here are some reminders before you head off on Spring Break!

  1. Check your laundry machine hoses. The life expectancy of a washing machine hose is only three years. So before heading to the beach, check for cracks or calcium buildup.
  2. Keep your house warm. Don’t be afraid to leave the thermostat on to HEAT your home while you are away. Even though the days are getting warmer, the night can still get cold. Keeping your home heated is the best solution to prevent your pipes from freezing.
  3. Inspect your water heater. Check to ensure you don’t see any obvious cracks or leaks and that there is no water on the floor or standing in the drip pan. You can shut it off or put it into vacation mode if you do not see any trouble.
  4. Check to ensure your sump pump is working and that you have a battery backup in case the power goes out.
  5. Shut off the water to the home if you will be gone for multiple weeks. If you decide to do this, drain the remaining water out of your faucets.
