Getting your home ready for winter during the fall months is an activity we all do as homeowners in Michigan.
Cleaning the outside of your home is one thing but making sure the inside of your home stays dry it a task. When the snow melts you don’t want it to run down the wall of your basement. Call a waterproofing specialist in your local area of Michigan to see what we can do for you when it comes to leaks and cracks in the basement.
Here is a list but remember your home is unique and may need less or more things that you need to do.
- Hire a company to check your furnace- it is not only advisable but should be mandatory for every family. They should be able to tell you if you need to replace it, or even replace some parts.
- The water heater is usually in the basement of the home, they should be able to tell you if that needs to be replace as well. Replacing a water heater when they tell you can save you some headaches and extra work.
- Replace smoke detectors’ batteries or the smoke detector itself if it is not in very good condition.
- Check for any basement leaks by the wall and make sure you have no crack in the basement wall. If you do you should hire a professional to crack inject your basement wall in Michigan.
