Don’t be caught off-guard this year when the first snow arrives. Designing Spaces gets some tips from Morton Salt on how to prepare for the upcoming winter season. Some ways to prepare your home for winter are to check that all steps, handrails, sidewalks, and driveways are in good shape, trim the trees to dispose of dead branches and watch for dying branches that may fall on your home during a snow storm, clean out the gutters, and make sure you have tools like blowers, shovels, and scrapers ready to go. For the car, keep blankets, a flashlight, a first-aid kit, and some Morton Action Melt on hand. Stocking up on ice is crucial in preparation for the winter season. Make sure you know which type of salt is best for your situation, and when it comes to ice melt, look for a trusted brand like Morton.
