In the winter, the landscape of your condo is approaching quickly and can help protect your property from harsh weather. We advise you to do the following tasks to prepare your countryside for the winter before the first snowfall and freezing temperatures hit :
Clean your eavestrough
The eavestrough of your building can become full of debris throughout the spring, summer and fall. In summer storms between falling leaves and branches, you might experience so much debris that you stop working effectively. This growth can lead to obstructions and even freeze in the winter months. During the winter, the cleaning of the debris will help prevent possible water damage to the roof. It will also relieve dripping water from the river, which can take place if the water does not flow freely to the downstream river.
Check the standing water issues
Check your property and note any areas that cause water difficulties. It could be mild dips in the grass that collects water or even areas on your walking routes. Everyone in the winter who forms puddles can be dangerous if they freeze. Before the temperature drops below freezing, find a solution for standing water problems.
Snow removal plans
It is important to get familiar with your snow removal plan or a snow removal contractor whether you currently have a snow removal plan or not. Make sure you or your contractor has a map of the area and of the utility and storm drains on your property to prevent damage or obstruction.
Get your salt ready
It is essential for us to have a snow removal contractor in winter in London. But whats equally important is to have a back-up plan for the condo residents. It may not be included in your package to remove snow depending on your contract. In these cases, it is a good idea to prepare salt or ice melters. At Affordable and Co, we provide you with a sand or salt bin on site, just ensure that your own scoops are available to avoid any last minute problems.
Look after irrigation systems
If your property contains an irrigation system or sprinkler, it can damage it over winter if it is not adequately prepared for cold weather. In autumn its a good idea to winterize your irrigation pipes to prevent any frozen or flooding pipes. Ask your irrigation specialist to help you with this task.
