Summer has ended and fall is here. Is your home ready for the cooler fall months? Preparing your home for fall may be one of the last chores on your to do list, but this is a great time to get some of your home maintenance chores accomplished.
Here are three helpful ideas to help you prepare for the cooler months:
1. Clean windows: As summer comes to an end, it’s a good idea to clean your windows before it gets too cold out. Polar windows make cleaning even easier because they flip in so you can clean them from inside your home. This makes your cleaning task much simpler.
2. Clean out gutters: Cleaning out your gutters at this time of year is essential; this will help to prevent them from getting clogged over the colder months. If your gutter clogs, it could freeze and create water and moisture build up in your walls and windows.
3. Do some general lawn and landscape maintenance: Now is the time to do some general landscaping maintenance around your home. Your lawn, as well as your garden, could use some extra seed and fertilizer to make it through the colder months. Taking care of your lawn and gardens before the colder months will help you have an easier spring.
These are just a few things you can do to prepare your home for fall and the upcoming colder weather. While this may seem like a daunting task, you will thank yourself for your hard work once the cold fronts come around. Get your home ready for fall and don’t let the cold weather affect your enjoyment of this new season.
