Tips for preparing your home for Autumn

Sep 30, 2013

Homeowners usually have a list of steps to take when they are preparing their homes for the spring. Steps should also be taken to prepare your home for autumn. Get these chores done now to avoid problems that can occur once the cold weather sets in. Guttering cleaning is often done in the spring. If your home is surrounded by tall deciduous trees, have the gutters cleaned after the leaves fall. For safety, this should be done professionally. No matter what type of cleaning you choose, have the gutters inspected. Ice in the winter can bring down loose gutters. Have your furnace inspected before you need heat. Once the cold season starts, service personnel may be busy and you do not want to wait. If you have a fireplace, have the chimney cleaned before your first use. Inspect around your doors and windows and seal any air leaks. Put down a good winter fertilizer to help your lawn survive. Daylight hours are also shorter during the winter seasons. With the cooler weather and enough daylight hours, autumn is an excellent time to get work done around your home. When was the last time you updated your homeowners insurance?
