Inspect caulking and grout around sinks, showers, and tubs.
Changing temperatures can cause your house to shift, so check to ensure the caulking around your home is intact. Water can seep into unseen areas, leading to the potential for mold. Help mitigate water damage by checking caulk and grout around your sink, tub, and shower. Make repairs where needed.
Shovel after each snowfall and keep driveways and walkways clear.
Be sure to add some salt!
