Prepping Your Property for Fall: Your Maintenance Checklist
Get your property ready for cooling fall weather so you can prevent damage and keep it functioning at its best.
Maintenance – Prepare for Fall
- Clean gutters of debris frequently.
- Make sure gutters are secure so water doesn’t come down behind them.
- Make sure all water drains properly and doesn’t pool. Pooling can damage hardscape.
- Inspect windows and doors to make sure stripping and caulking are in good condition.
- Check the heating systems to catch minor problems before they become costly repairs.
- Clean ducts to make heating more efficient and air cleaner.
- Make sure pipes are insulated to prevent freezing and bursting.
- Grass and other greenery may appear to stop growing, but the roots are actually growing deeper to prepare for winter. Now is a great time to fertilize and reseed.
- Prune trees and shrubs after leaves turn to encourage health and growth.
- Trim tree limbs that could cause building damage when weighed down with snow or ice.
