Are you ready for cool weather, the changing leaf colors and eventually winter storms? Taking care of a few Fall Home Maintenance items now and enjoy the season changes later.
Grab a Rake – Your lawn needs maintenance in the Fall to stay healthy through winter and come back beautiful in the Spring. Raking up leaves and aerating the soil will insure proper oxygen to your lawn. Feed your grass, shrubs and trees before the long winter nap.
Get The Gunk Out of The Gutters – Dirt and debris can stop up your gutters causing water to overflow and damage your home. In the winter, Ice Dams can form causing even more damage. Cleaning them out now can save you a lot of heartache later.
Keep it Hot – Make sure your heater is ready for duty by having an inspection before the season begins.
Air Tight – Your home loses heat in winter and cool in the summer through gaps around windows and doors. Sealing a drafty house can save up to 20% on your heating bills, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
Wrap It Up – If you live in an area where freezing temps are the norm, be sure to turn off outside faucet valves and drain the lines to prevent freeze and burst pipes. Home supply stores sell several types of outdoor faucet protection for those homes without valves.
