Weather forecast indicates wet, cold and snow Oct 23-25 week-end. An early winter blast will be hitting eastern Idaho over the next few days.
So, disconnect outside hoses. Install insulated hose bib covers (outside faucets). Check the outside pump house for those who have wells.
Inspect your furnace or heat source before you need to use it. Cleanup the grill on electric wall heaters, check filters...etc.(consult the instructions or operators manual for your heat source for details). While this may be just a light snow and moderate cold weather. It's the first of the fall / winter season, so be ready and eliminate water or fire damage to your home, business or farm.

Disconnect outside hoses!
It's still great weather here in Eastern Idaho. As we approach mid-October things can change quickly with night time temperatures dropping below freezing. Freezing outside watering hoses attached to hose bibs. (Outside Faucets). This can cause broken pipes just inside the house. Causing flooding.
Here's a tip to prevent this type of pipe and water damage.
Remove the hose from the hose bib after using it. DO NOT LEAVE HOSES CONTECTED TO THE WATER SOURCE THRU THE NIGHT... OR CONNECTED ALL WINTER LONG.
INSTALL INSULATED COVERS ON OUTSIDE TAPS!
As colder weather becomes a regular occurance protect outside water faucets with insulated covers. They are inexpensive, easy to install and work quite well. Follow the manufacturer's instructions and the risk of frozen house bibs (taps) can be reduced significantly.

Water Damage Tip #1
Saftey should always be your main concern: Turn off the electrical power to the area of the water damage and in some cases with major flooding the entire house or office.
If you have a water damage locate the source of water. Should your damage be from a broken pipe, water supply line, water softener, dishwasher or clothes washer. Shut of the water to the appliance and perhaps the supply to your home or office.
Watch for tip #2

A special thanks to all insurance agents, adjustors, plumbers and friends that attended our recent open house on September 24, 2010. We hope each of you had a great lunch and that the water damage, fire and smoke damage, sewer cleanup and restoration displays were educational.
In addition to the lunch, the food drive was a success with food and money donated for the Idaho Falls area food banks.
We look forward to other events thru out the fall and winter.
