5 Maintenance Tips for Fall
Dated: August 15 2020
These simple maintenance tasks can save you from expensive repairs and big headaches over the next few months.
Take care of hoses and faucets
Disconnect your hoses before the freezing temperatures arrive, because they can cause water to back up in your faucets—and eventually cause the plumbing to crack. Then, if possible, shut off the valves for your exterior faucets.
Winterize the lawn mower
Either run the mower dry, or use a fuel stabilizer to prevent the gas in your mower from degrading and damaging the engine.
Clean the gutters
Twigs and leaves will build up in your gutters throughout the fall. Make sure to clean the gutters before there’s heavy snow, because the weight of both the leaves and the melting snow could cause the gutters to break away from the house.
Get the furnace ready
Your best bet is to call in a professional to give the furnace a tune up, but at the very least you should change the filters.
Inspect the roof
As snow accumulates and melts from your roof, it can cause major water damage if the roof isn’t in good shape. Look for loose shingles, rust, moss—anything that could lead to decay or water damage. It’s best to be proactive with your roof—repairs can be extremely expensive—so don’t hesitate to call a roofing professional if necessary. It’s worth it in the long run!
