How are your Fall home maintenance tasks coming along?

2e4bba7f7c9f901cd1394d2cf5860b4d.jpg

Fall is quickly settling in around the U.S.; the morning air has a brisk chill and the days are shortening; the temperatures are mild and the scenery is beautiful. For homeowners, this is a great time of the year to get outside to perform some maintenance before the cold and frost set in. The more preventative maintenance you accomplish around your house, the easier it is for your house to survive the ravages of age, time and weather.

So tackle this fall maintenance checklist now! The weather’s still nice so you have plenty of time. Taking one Saturday to run down this checklist of home and yard prep can stave off all sorts of winter emergencies.

  • Plant new trees and lay sod (good deals this time of year)
  • Trim branches and shrubs
  • Winterize perrenials, clean annuals out
  • Turn off sprinklers and disconnect water hoses (before first freeze)
  • Do a thorough cleaning of your patio furniture, barbecue grill, etc… and store them properly for next season.
  • Roof and gutters - clear off and check for damage
  • Splash blocks - clean
  • HVAC - vacuum & dust
  • Garbage disposal - crush ice (sharpens) baking soda and citrus fruit rinds (freshens)
  • Plumbing - check for leaks on supply lines to sinks and toilets
  • Hot water heater - drain and remove sediment

Check these items off your list this season, and you can rest easy knowing that your home and yard are buttoned up and ready for winter.

Be sure to check in next month for more tips on how to keep your home in great shape.

During this time when summer is winding down, but Fall hasn’t quite set in, it’s a good idea to take on some home maintenance projects. Fall is a critical a season for preparing your home to withstand the potentially harsh winter weather and temperature conditions that may await you. The steps you take now can help protect your home and property from more potentially expensive damage and emergency repairs in the colder months to come.

Following are some home maintenance tips to help you prepare for the coming winter: 

  • HVAC - vacuum & dust;  shut off, clean, and cover A/C until Spring, have the heating system serviced (always do in Fall)
  • Garden - rake leaves & dispose of mulch
  • Smoke & carbon monoxide detectors - check batteries
  • Range hood fan- check & clean
  • Garbage disposal - crush ice (sharpens), baking soda and citrus fruit rinds (freshens)
  • Plumbing - check for leaks on supply lines to sinks and toilets
  • Weatherstripping & windows - check all caulking for separations & cracks, re-caulk
  • Fridge - test door tightness (use a dollar bill and pull it out of fridge after closing the door on it.)
  • Fireplace & chimney - inspect & clean
