Winter 2020

17 Feb Winter 2020

With the ground hog predicting an early spring and the cherry blossoms starting to appear, it’s safe to say that winter in Victoria is wrapping up and spring is on the way! While it’s still pretty wet outside, you never know when another wind storm will rear it’s ugly head. Are you prepared for a power outage?  Make sure you’re prepared with a survival kit. Your winter home maintenance checklist should include stocking up on bottled water, non-perishable food, flashlights, first-aid supplies, batteries and a smart phone charger.

Speaking of your winter home checklist and wind storms, your winter home maintenance checklist should include trimming any dead tree limbs so they don’t fall and damage your home during a winter storm. If you need to remove large limbs or remove a tree, it may be best to hire a professional.

Already done everything on your winter home checklist and now you’re working on getting your house ready for the spring market? Now would be a great time to clean out dead leaves and debris in your lawn. Don’t let overgrown vegetation block the windows or path to the entrance. Cutting bushes and tree limbs will let the sun inside and showcase the exterior of your home.

With Valentines Day and Family Day happening this month  (and an extra long weekend for families with school aged children due to a Pro-D day on the 14th) be sure to check out all of the different and fun things happening around Victoria including a free fun filled day for families at the Victoria Public Market on Family Day Monday February 17th.
