It is important to winterize your mobile trailer before winter arrives to ensure the trailers are safe to live in and will outlast the season. In doing winterization, you can prevent the trailer from becoming too cold during the winter months and suffering from damages. Plus, more accidents happen during winter due to poor mobile home winterization.
Here are four easy steps to improve your home before the holidays.
The only way to check if your windows and doors have proper insulation is to measure the temperature with a thermal imaging camera. The thermal imaging camera emits infrared light, which is visible to humans but not to heat, so it can be used to see the temperature of objects better than humans can. Professional traditional and mobile home maintenance teams can use these tools to help you find out more about your existing insulation.
To check for pipe leaks, you need to locate the pipe under the house and use a device called a dye test. The dye test will show if there is water coming out of the pipe. If you see water, you need to fix the pipe now before it leaks or breaks.
You can call professional mobile home maintenance teams to help you address pipe leaks and other sewage and plumbing issues you might have.
Skirting Cracks and Dents
Skirting is a metal edge that covers the entire perimeter of a mobile home and protects the home from damage in the event of a slide or a vehicle accident. It is a crucial part of a mobile home and cannot be removed or altered without risking severe damage to the mobile home.
Thus, it’s essential to ensure that your skirting is in top condition before the snow arrives.
Gutter and Rainwater System Maintenance
Lastly, your gutter and rainwater system is crucial to improving your home’s winterization.
Rainwater that falls on roofs flows into gutters and then into storm drains. The storm drains to get rid of the water from the roof and then send it to a stream or river, where it picks up pollutants from the ground before going back to the ocean.
