Time to get into spring cleaning mode
Time to start getting ready for spring cleaning. Here are just a few tips to start you off:
1. Check for loose or leaking gutters and clean debris from them so rain water runs freely.
2. Make sure downspouts drain away from the foundation of your house.
3. Any low areas in your yard or next to the foundation should be filled with compacted soil. Spring rains can cause yard flooding, which can lead to foundation flooding and damage. Also standing water in these areas cause a breeding ground for insects.
