Fall Maintenance Checklist

Here’s how to get your home and yard ready for winter before it’s too late.
1. Clean Your Gutters
An old plastic spatula makes a great tool for cleaning your gutters and it doesn’t scratch them.

2. Check Your Detectors
Fall is a great time to check the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.

3. Clean Out Window Wells
To prevent broken windows and flooding in your basement clean out fall leaves and debris from your window wells.

4. Fertilize
Fertilizing in the fall provides nutrients for the grassroots.

5. Winterize Your Sprinklers
Draining your sprinklers ensures you don’t have busted pipes and sprinkler head repairs in the spring.

6. Change Furnace Filters
One of the easiest things you can do to keep your furnace in good shape is to change your furnace filter especially before you turn it on for the first time in the fall.

7. Seal Air Leaks
Weatherstripping is the most cost-effective way to keep cooling and heating costs down.

Preventative maintenance is key to keeping your home safe and healthy inside and out.
