Fall is truly a beautiful season what with all the vibrant red and orange foliage, pumpkins, and cool breeze. Fall also signals the coming of snow and freezing temperature. To enjoy fall and the coming winter, it’s best to prep your home.
Check for drafts
Examine your windows for cracks. In case you found one, seal it to prevent drafts. This way, your household will stay warm during the cold season. You’ll also save on energy and reduce your heating bills.
Inspect your roofing system
Watch out for damaged or curled shingles and leaky vents. Call a roofing specialist in case there are holes or damage on your roof. It’s best to have it repaired while the weather is still good.
Make sure wood stoves are working fine
In the cold season, wood stoves are sure to make a comeback. To avoid a deadly situation, be sure to inspect yours before firing it up.
Inspect and clean gutters
Make sure gutters and downspouts are not clogged. Remove all debris and leaves to prevent clogging.
Vacuum all upholstered surfaces
You think your couch is clean until you plop on it, and a haze of dust appears around you. Give sofas and chairs a good vacuuming.
Make your home safe and comfortable this fall. Apart from doing the things mentioned, it also pays to call pest control technicians because they can help you eliminate bed bugs, house fly, and other pests that could spread diseases in your home.
