Autumn Home Upkeep

Just like spring, the fall comes with its own set of home care suggestions, but rather than deep cleaning, homeowners should be storing, prepping, and organizing for the cooler months.

The Yard

  • Fall is the best time to aerate, reseed and/or fertilize the lawn. Aerating will allow oxygen, water and fertilizer to easily reach the roots while fertilizing provides extra nutrients over the dormant winter months.
  • Don't forget to add spring color by planting tulip, lily, and daffodil bulbs.
  • Trim back tree branches and limbs that may grow close to you or your neighbor's home, as well as power lines.
  • Clean gutters and downspouts and inspect the roof for missing, loose, or cracked shingles.

The Garage

  • Clean and store garden tools, as well as the lawn mower. Empty out unused fuel from gas-powered equipment because sediment can build up and clog the fuel lines.
  • Cover and store outdoor furniture.
  • Test and prepare generators for loss of power due to winter storms.

The Home

  • Check the fireplace and chimney. Most chimney sweeps recommend an annual sweeping, but depending on how often you use the fireplace, you might be able to wait on a full sweep. But if you will be using the fireplace often, call a chimney sweep for an inspection.
  • Stock up on wood; it's recommended to keep firewood at least 30 feet from the house and covered.
  • Replace the air filter in the furnace and clean ducts to ensure the system's efficiency. Call in an HVAC contractor to test the heating output and give the system a tune-up.
  • Caulk windows and doors to prevent heat from escaping.
  • Change the direction of the ceiling fan. Fans should run clockwise in the winter in order to help circulate the warm air.
  • Daylight savings time is the ideal benchmark for changing batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, as well as inspecting any fire extinguishers. This year we turn the clocks back November 5.

Allen and Cheryl were truly amazing. They made the experience of selling my mother's home easy and efficient. Any issue that came up was dealt with calmly and effectively by Allen and Cheryl. They kept us informed every step of the way and they were so kind and thoughtful when dealing with my mother. We received tremendous value for their commission. I would highly recommend them.
