Fall Home Maintenance Tips

Seasonal home maintenance is an important part of owning your own home. With back-to-school, Halloween, and Thanksgiving on the horizon, don’t forget to make time to prepare for the season. Follow these fall maintenance tips to keep your home running smooth!

  • Check your home for water leaks – seriously, go check.
  • Have a heating professional check your heating system – This is the best way to extend the life of your heating system.
  • Protect your home from frozen pipes – shutting off hose bibbs from the interior, and insulating pipes in your crawlspace may prevent costly repairs later.
  • Test your emergency generator – You don’t want to chance it in an emergency.
  • Have a certified chimney sweep inspect and clean the flues and check your fireplace damper – Before you begin to use your fireplace in the winter, get a thorough cleaning to remove creosote and other flammable materials that cause chimney fires.
  • Inspect and clean dust from the covers of your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Change batteries if needed.
  • Make sure the caulking around doors and windows is adequate to reduce heat/cooling loss – This is also important to keep water out of your home.
  • Make sure that the caulking around your tub, toilet and sink is adequate to prevent water from seeping into the sub-flooring
  • Clean your gutters. This should be done every 3 months or each season change.
