Dear Friends and Clients,

Years ago, our family lived in Georgia, Mississippi, and later in Arizona. When we moved back to Worland in 1988, I had to pinch myself to make sure the experience was real. You can take the boy out of Wyoming, but you cannot take Wyoming out of the boy. Each year after the first freeze, or after the first thaw, we get calls asking for help drying out the home. Today I am going to share with you some tips that will cut my business and keep your home or business dry. I figure if your home is dry, you probably want to keep it clean. Either way, we are here to help. Now here are a few tips to eliminate some wet headaches.

In the wintertime, disconnect the hose from the house faucet. If you don't, I guarantee a split water line.

Check your crawl space for vent covers and insulation cover. Ventilation is good, but a sharp breeze under the bath can freeze the plumbing.

Is your lawn sprinkler system hooked to the house? Make sure all lines are off and the system has been blown out. Sounds silly, but if it's on and freezes, your basement or crawl space is the next victim.

If you use a heat tape for lines, when was the last time you checked to see if it was plugged in or for that matter, even working? Crawling in a soaked crawl space is a real bummer and expensive.

Sometimes unused rooms get their heat shut off. If that room borders a bathroom, the potential for freezing is higher. This includes hot water zone heat or forced air. These five ideas are for a little preventative maintenance. Share them with your friends, family, and associates. Then when we visit we can talk about the weather, football, hunting or spot cleaning instead of how long it will take to dry the basement.
