Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:123 EcoTip: Most windows have small weep holes that allow water to drain. It is important to keep these weep holes free of debris so that water can drain instead of being trapped.

***********************************

 Additional Information

When the window weep holes accumulate dirt, leaves, stucco, paint or other debris and become clogged, the water in the windowsill can leak over the track into the home. The weep holes should be carefully inspected to be sure they are kept clean. You can clean out blocked weep holes with a straightened paper clip or other small wire or stick.
