Fall Preventative Maintenance
Fall is an important time of the year to perform preventative maintenance on and around your home. These simple tips can help prevent costly damage.
Make sure your gutters and downspouts are clear of leaves and debris, as well as exterior drains and sewer grates. Check your roof and windows for any damage. Repair damage and caulk any leaks to prevent water from getting into your home. Store hoses for the Winter, and turn water off to exterior hose bibs to prevent them from freezing and bursting.
Make sure to have your furnace cleaned and serviced. Check chimneys for blockages and make sure the damper is in working order. Have your chimney cleaned regularly to prevent creosote buildup and prevent fires.
