Take a Walk in a Winter Wonderland | SERVPRO® of Spring Valley/Jamul

Winter will officially be here on Dec. 21, but depending on where you are, the season could look very different. In our part of California and other areas in our region, we tend to step into the season gently with just a slight dip in temperatures and dryer weather, while other areas in the nation will make a headfirst dive into a cold and snow-filled winter.

Regardless of which kind of season you can expect, winter has a set of weather dangers unique to the season that could damage your property and force your family out into the cold (or the rain…or the fog…or, well, you understand).

When you get to know the challenges you could be dealing with, you can properly prepare, which means your family stays safe.

Winter Around the Nation

Shivery, snowy, mild and wet are all predictions that have been made for the upcoming winter season in the United States, particularly when you look at the nation as two different parts.

In the Midwest and parts of the East Coast, winter will likely bring deep snow and low temperatures for the duration of the cold months. The West Coast, however, will see rain as temperatures and mostly mild temperatures over the season.

There will be variations of these predictions as the season progresses in different areas, but if you are ready for the worst, you can best manage the risk of damages to your property.

Winter Around Spring Valley

Our winters consist mostly of comfortable, dry days. Our cold months are generally between November and April, with December often bringing us the lowest temperatures.

On any given day, we will likely see highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. While most winter seasons do bring rain, this year is again predicted to be particularly dry, which leaves us at a greater risk for wildfires than normal.

Get Prepared

To be able to enjoy the outdoors without scorching heat and not fear winter weather-related damage to your home, take the time to get familiar with the kinds of winter storms that could happen. Be sure you have two ways to get weather alerts, including one that doesn’t require external power to work.

A supply kit for emergencies is crucial in preparing your home and your family for every kind of weather. Keep your kit stored safely so that it can be accessed quickly, and check its contents seasonally. Pack one for the car, too, so you are prepared for unexpected situations.

Even without extremely low temperatures hitting our area, weatherproofing your window frames and doors can prevent damaging moisture and help with your electric bill. Use a cover for your outdoor faucets if an extreme low does happen to hit so that you avoid frozen pipes.

Give your roof a little extra attention ahead of the season to repair anything broken. Cut tree limbs, and consider extra insulation for your attic or crawl space.

Winter offers a break from our sometimes extreme heat that can feel like magic when you know your home is protected. Add SERVPRO to your contacts and take advantage of our 247 availability if your home is damaged during a storm.

If you experience damage in a winter storm, call us. We have the experience and equipment to get your home back to normal.
