10 Fall Maintenance Tips

10 Fall Maintenance Tips

Posted on August 29, 2023

As the seasons change, it's important to stay on top of your home maintenance checklist - especially during the fall.

During this time of year, the cooler temperatures and harsh fall weather can do a number on your home. But with some preparation (and professional assistance), you can keep your home warm, cozy, and safe.

Use these fall home maintenance tips to keep your home in great shape this season and beyond.

1. Remove all leaves and debris from your gutters and downspouts.

2. Look for missing shingles and damage, such as cracking, splitting and curling. Check for noticeable signs of moss, mildew and algae.

3. Get your heating & cooling system serviced. 

4. Get your chimney cleaned.

5. Rake your leaves and aerate and fertilize the soil.

6. Inspect the trees in your yard, especially those closest to your house. Remove tree branches that appear dead or severely damaged.

7. Disconnect & drain garden hoses.

8. Make sure your attic is insulated and sealed.

9. Seal cracks around windows & doors.

10. Replace your batteries for your smoke detectors and CO alarms every year. When you set the clocks back in the fall is a good time to do this.
