Hard Freeze Protection


    As much as we love renting our portable toilets to homeowners, it is unfortunate to find out a potty is needed because of busted pipes. Pipes are prone to cracking during hard freezes and with Winter in full swing, it's only a matter of time before we get a freeze blowing in. Below are some tips to help prepare your home.

  •     Opening your cabinets where there are faucets is very helpful to keep your pipes warm. Also, allow the faucets to drip water so there's a continuing flow through the pipes to avoid it freezing over.
  • Disconnect any water hoses from their faucets on the outside of the home and cover the faucet with rags, towels, plastic foam, etc. to keep them protected from the freeze. You can also add pipe insulation to protect the pipe going to the faucet.
  • If your home's foundation has any vents, cover those up to keep the cold air out.
    If you do experience frozen pipes, leave the water spout open and wait for them to thaw. If there is access to the pipes, you can apply low heat to help defrost them. If your pipe happens to break or crack, turn the main water valve off and call a plumber. Don't forget to call us too if it's an unfortunate long time fix. We're always here to help.

Winter Ready?


    Christmas is around the corner and the kids are about to start Christmas break from school, so there's no better time than now to get some of those house projects done. Winter prepping your home is probably the last thing on your mind right now but it should definitely be considered before it gets too cold.

    The best place to start a winter preparation for you home is the attic. Take a look at the insulation, make sure everything is up to date and notice any parts that may need to be replaced. Proper insulation will help keep heat in and your electric bill down. Also, look around any attic windows, if you can get to them, make sure they are still properly sealed. If not, a little caulking around the trim can help with any drafts coming through.

    While the caulking is out, take a walk around the house and inspect the windows and doors for any drafts coming in from the outside. You can also caulk around those trims to help the rest of the house stay warm. You can also put more weather stripping around those drafty areas that aren't too wide and it looks a little nicer than caulking.

    Another easy fix is to check your smoke detectors. There's nothing more annoying than being woke up in the middle of the night by that daunting beep. It always happens at night too. You should safely check your smoke detector batteries at least every six months. With the heat being turned up and fireplaces going, there's no reason you shouldn't want to make sure you're fire ready.

    These were only a few steps for you to do to your home to prep it for the winter. There are so many others including having faucet covers ready for those hard freezes, plant coverings to help your greenery survive, and a little hot chocolate in the pantry wouldn't hurt.
