Things that can cause fire and water damage in the winter
Hot chocolate. Warm blankets. Snuggling. Snow angels. Holiday decor. Christmas movies. Any of that sound familiar? It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas … and winter. All of those things are all fine and dandy and reasons why a large part of the population loves the winter season. However, there are some things that can happen during the winter that you may not love so much.
