SPRING HAS SPRUNG!
Well, spring is here, the snow has melted or is melting depending upon your neighbourhood.  Now is a great time to get your yard and home tidied up from all the salt and sand and things that have blown into and around your yard during the past winter.  Ensure your sump pump is in working order, clean out your gutters and downspouts and direct the flow of water away from the foundation of your home.  If you have a storm grate at or near the front of your property, make sure it is clear of debris to allow the spring thaw and rains to freely run down the drains.  The past winter was not necessarily as harsh as it could have been, the spring has not yet shown us what is to come!
