Can you believe that another summer is almost over? The beginning of this year seemed to last much longer than usual but the summer has flown by and now it’s time to start thinking about getting ready for fall. With the change of the season coming soon, there are some maintenance tasks that you’ll want to perform to make sure your home and property stay looking as beautiful as ever!
Tend the Gutters
Your gutters are kind of the “unsung hero” of your home’s exterior, and before fall begins, they are going to need some TLC. When rainwater, leaves, sticks, and various other debris hits your roof, it ends up in the gutters. The water will just drain out. All of that other stuff, however, will stay in there until it is removed. Before fall causes trees everywhere to shed their leaves, have someone come clean out your gutters and take a look at them. Fall can also bring a significant amount of rain, so healthy gutters will be essential!
Check the Seals
Next, you will want to check all of your doors and windows. Fall is a windy season, and drafts can cause your energy bills to rise, plus the unexpected cool air in your otherwise comfortable home can be a nuisance. All the doors should fit snugly into their frames with no gaps where air can come in. The sealant used around doors and windows can break down over time, so if you’re unsure about seals in your home you should call a window professional.
Bring in or Secure Outdoor Furniture
As nice as it has been to lounge around and hang out in the backyard sunshine all summer, very soon it will be time to put away that outdoor furniture for the fall. Most homeowners will leave this for last, though. There’s no harm in getting every bit of sunshine that you can before summer comes to an end!
