Fall Home Maintenance


Are you taking care of your home seasonally? It’s easy to get behind on all the little tasks around the house that keep your home in shape as the seasons change. In the fall months, here are our recommendations for the most important tasks around your home.

THIS MONTH:

  • Have your chimney professionally cleaned and checked.

  • Clear leaves from gutters and roof surfaces.

  • Cut back tree branches from roof edges and electrical wires.

  • Check chimney flashing and roof/attic seals.

  • Have annual maintenance on your heating system.

EVERY MONTH:

  • Check your HVAC filters and change if needed.

  • Make sure your fire extinguisher in operational and not expired.

  • Test smoke alarms and carbon monoxide monitors.

  • Test all GFCI receptacles (electrical outlets).

EVERY QUARTER:

  • Completely clean out refrigerator, disinfect and restock.

  • Run a drill of your fire escape plan. Ensure your routes are clear and accessible – windows open, no furniture blocking exits, etc.

  • Clean your range hood filter.

  • Test your water heater’s pressure relief valve.
