"I called my insurance company and they immediately contacted your company. Robert Ball stated he would arrive to my home within an hour. He did….amazing!!!. I cannot say enough about the professionalism of your technicians…I had the feeling that every thing was going to be okay. In the afternoon on Saturday, I had reason to call Robert Ball, as I was concerned with my circuit breaker was tripping with the increased load created by drying equipment. Robert answered his phone…no voicemail…once again, amazing!! "
-Dan Brown
“I was impressed with everyone who cleaned our house – very friendly and hard workers.” 
- Connie Thingstad
“We are writing this letter of reference for ProRestore DKI because of our appreciation and amazement of the service they showed us with their new way of cleaning product. Everything ProRestore DKI has cleaned came back to the store smelling fresh and free of stains and marks. I foresee us utilizing this service in the future when we come across some good, used sports equipment that really smells but has the quality to be resold. I recommend this cleaning service to anyone who has involvement with sport activities. From teams to single families, this service works.”

As we are officially reaching the winter months, it is very important to begin making small repairs and preparations necessary for ensuring your family is safe and warm during the winter season. Today, Prorestore DKI would like to share a few ideas to help you in this endeavour. Remember that it is better to take care of any repairs and to prepare now, so as not to have problems later when it’s cold out there!

Keeping Warm

Be sure you take the time to get a quick maintenance check on your heating unit, taking time to replace the filter if necessary. Check that all is in working order before you absolutely need it and discover a problem. 

Your fireplace might be a valuable way to keep your home warm this winter. To make sure it is in proper working order, check around the chimney to ensure there are no damages or missing bricks. Either clean the flue yourself or hire someone. Make sure there is no blockage that will prevent smoke from going up and out of your home. 

Another suggestion is to reverse your ceiling fans. They should then be going in a clockwise motion. The idea here is that the fans will now push hot air from the ceiling and redistribute it throughout the room. 

Check around the home and fix drafts with weatherstripping around the doors and caulk around the windows. Doing this now will help your home stay warmer throughout the winter. 

Outside

Before the first big snow comes, take time to cover your outside faucets and pipes exposed to outside weather, with an insulated protection. This way, you’ll be less likely to have freezing pipes!

When it comes to snow, be sure to avoid snow buildup on the roof. Remember that if snow falls-from the roof-quickly, it can cause significant damage to your home, car, or power lines. 

On the same note, watch out for icicles. Sure they are beautiful, but that can be rather dangers, so avoid working under them. Likewise, remember that their presence could indicate a water drainage problem and you may want to check your gutters. 

We know that there are so many things to do before the holiday season, but remembering to winterizing your home can help to ensure a much more tranquil season for you and your family, without home repairs perhaps. If you are to discover damage too large to fix, or experience a home related disaster, remember our guide on how to stay calm in an emergency and that Prorestore DKI is here to help.
