Tips for getting your home ready for fall

Clean your gutters

If you don’t have gutter covers, you need to make sure you have clean gutters before the rain and leaves of fall start to fall. Backed-up gutters can cause damage to your roof and exterior walls. Don’t do this job alone, you need a spotter when you are on a ladder. Even better, hire a professional to clean your gutters. 

Do furnace maintenance

It’s time to get your HVAC maintenance done. Your furnace needs to be clean to work efficiently and it is time to make sure your AC is ready to be closed down for the winter. 

Get your chimney cleaned

If you have a fireplace that you use, a yearly chimney cleaning is recommended. It doesn’t matter if it is wood or gas, fireplaces and chimneys should be inspected and cleaned yearly. 

Get your fall tools ready

Whether you like to use a rake, a leaf blower, or a mower that picks up leaves, it is time to make sure everything is charged and ready to go. 

Put away the summer furniture and toys

As the weather gets colder, it is time to put your summer outdoor furniture away and put the cover on your grill.  Take in your hoses and turn off the outdoor faucets.
