Keeping Warm Through The StormsPosted on - 16.02.22
This February, storms have been battering the UK. With alerts for wind across the whole country and torrential downpours leading to localised flooding, its not a far cry for some remote locations that power will be down, at least for a little while. So why not get yourself prepared.
Getting Ready For Warmth
Getting ready for a storm to hit doesn't only apply to those who live in remote areas of the county, like those in the moorlands, it means that we should all be prepared, should the worst happen.
If you have a real fireplace or a log burner in your home, it might be time to consider stocking up on logs in Staffordshire!
You'll likely have used your fire at least once this winter, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't give it a check over both before and during the storm to ensure that it is still ventilating well.
Preparing With Logs
As always, for a longer and hotter burn, we recommend investing in hardwood logs in Staffordshire. However, it's important to consider having a stockpile indoors with the weather warning in mind.
Many of us have log stores in the shed, or even just in the garden, but when strong winds and heavy rain are on the horizon, how much do you see yourself wanting to step out that door to collect more logs? We don't fancy it much either.
This means that finding yourself somewhere inside to store your logs is important in helping you stay not only warm but also dry!
For many, the idea of having a stack of logs next to the fire is an idealistic, picturesque image, while for others it's widely impractical, particularly with little fingers and pets thrown into the mix. This leaves you looking for alternatives. For starters, have you got space behind the sofa for a collection of logs? Or behind a chair? Have you considered a stack in the downstairs w/c? It might not be practical for toilet use, but it's keeping you warm and dry.
Alternatively, look at a set of stacking boxes that you can keep somewhere, just for the bad weather. You can then use them for storage elsewhere, or to keep your winter things in the loft during summer.
Of course, when bringing logs inside to store them, you'll need to consider how wet they are, and how likely they are to be carrying any critters inside with them. Ordering kiln dried logs from D Price & Sons helps to ensure that all critters have been removed throughout the kiln drying process. Making them safe to bring inside.
