Don't let ice, snow damage your home

(Continued)

WASHINGTON —

Q: What about window condensation?

A:
People with older houses and single-pane windows with no storm windows get a lot of condensation in this weather. It later can freeze, melt and damage the woodwork. You should mop up the moisture with towels and try to keep it away from the wood.

Q: If it snows a lot, what are things we should be aware of in home maintenance?

A:
Make sure the exterior vents are clear, and the same with downspouts that drain and don't go into an extension. Uncover your dryer vent.
