Fall Clean Up Is Important For The Safety Of Your Home
As fall leaves begin to fly and temperatures begin to fall, it is essential to make sure that your fall clean-up starts, so they do not make way to future disasters. Enlist the help of your entire family and make it fun.
Check weather stripping and caulking around doors. Cracks and missing stripping can cause heat loss and allow the fall and winter weather to intrude into your home. This can cause damage to your windows, doors, and floors. Make sure that the proper repairs and replacements are made.
Check and clean your gutters and downspouts. When they become clogged or loose, they can create water damage in and around your home.
Patio furniture should be cleaned covered or stored away, so it remains in tip-top condition for next spring and summer
Garden hoses should be drained and unsecured from outdoor water spickets. This will prevent the hose and the outdoor water source from freezing thus potentially causing pipes to burst and creating a water disaster
Check out exterior paint. Does your home need a touch-up? Cooler weather allows you to complete any outdoor painting activities.
If you have a swimming pool, it is time to close it for the season.
Busy schedules sometimes give way to the opportunity to season proof your home.
