As for seepage problems these are best prevented by keeping snow piles away from foundations and creating runoff paths for water as it melts from rooftops. Should seepage occur then it is imperative that moisture be removed as soon as possible. Carpets may be vacuumed with wetvacs or rented carpet steam cleaners. These methods will remove the bulk of the water but carpets should be thoroughly dried after vaccuming. Heat lamps, electric or kerosene heaters and fans are the best methods of drying wet carpets and padding. If all else fails you can pull up the carpet and padding from the wet areas allowing air circulation to dry them. If carpets and padding are not completely dried mildew will set in and the jute backing on the carpet will eventually rot. Last and most important of all be sure to locate the main area where seepage occurs and patch, plug or plaster the hole. If repair is not feasible, however be sure to remove all furniture, carpet and other items that might be damaged by the waters, provide adequate ventilation to prevent mildew and wait for a better day. - - , ..... ,,, " ' f X avalanche.
