As temperatures dip and snowflakes start to fall, your home needs a little extra TLC to keep it in top-notch shape throughout the winter. Here are a few tips to help prepare your home for cold weather:
Smart Stock Up
Be ready for the first storm by filling your car and garage with essential winter supplies, such as shovels, ice scrapers and blankets. Don’t’ forget to also stock up on Morton Ice Melt to keep walkways clear and safe for your family and neighbors. Morton’s trusted line of premium Ice Melt is designed to meet your household’s specific needs, from pet-friendly to fast acting.
Careful Clean Up
Make sure all steps, handrails, sidewalks and driveways are in good shape. Broken stairs, uneven steps, and cracked cement become even more dangerous when covered with snow and ice.
Prepared Pack Up
Keep extra blankets, road flares and flashlights in your car in case of a roadside emergency. Also, keep a bag of Morton® Action Melt® in your trunk during the winter season. The extra weight can provide additional stability while driving on a slick roadways and the product can be applied around tires to provide additional traction for getting out of snowdrifts.
