  • Inspect roof for damage (cracking or leaking)
  • Clean gutters and downspouts.
  • Monitor basement humidity. Use a dehumidifier to maintain a safe, relative humidity.
  • Open valves to outside hose connections.
  • Clean/replace air filters every 2 months.
  • Vacuum clothes dryer lint from duct.
  • Position BBQ 3 feet away from home or other structures.
