Step 1: Unplug the Garden hose, and shut off the water spigot.
This is the number one cause of Homeowner devastation, if you fail to do so in the Midwest; the valve could rupture and cause leaks. Results could be Mold and drywall damage. If this does happen make sure to call SERVPRO
This is a disaster, no one wants a flooded basement. If it does happen, SERVPRO has your back.
Step 2: Christmas Tree Fire's!!
Some of us celebrate the holidays with a Christmas Tree and wonderful lights! Be careful; using too many plugins for one outlet could result in a house fire!
As well as having a live Christmas Tree, watering it will keep the needles from becoming fuel for a possible House fire. It may be common knowledge but it is surprising how many people could of avoided this by knowing common occurrences.
Step 3: Insulate your water pipes!
Insulating household water pipes could stop a potential rupture and is easy to do. Most likely the only pipes you'll need to check are underneath the sink, and basement ceilings.
Doing so is easy! Simply go to your local Home Supply shop and get the appropriate sizes to accommodate your needs!
