Warnm Weather for Minnesota.

OK, the weather is finally changing.

The snow is melting fast now, so now is the time to watch for

wetness in the lower levels.

 

You  need to...

 

Check sump pumps.  Are they working properly?

Down spout extensions.  Are they attached and pulling water away from the house?

Check lower travel areas for wetness.  Many areas get very little air movement and can cause mold to grow.

Check the Attic...Are there any water spots you have not seen before or that are wet again.

 

Hopefully you cleaned the gutters out last fall so water can flow unobstructed.

 

It will be wet and sloppy, but now could be a great time to wash those windows and a few other issues that really need attention.

Do it now, as summer is almost here!

And don't forget to take those covers off of outside vents and let the air flow through! I learn a lot about these things you mention when doing home inspections...those items that can really make a difference when selling.

It's good to know that it is going to warm up in Minnesota, now I won't have to feel bad about my friend having to drudge through the snow.
