Preping Your Home For Fall

Preping Your Home For Fall

Fall is just around the corner, and as the leaves begin to change and the crisp air settles in, it's the perfect time to give your home a little seasonal TLC. Whether you're sipping pumpkin spice lattes or planning your Halloween decor, take a break and let's dive into some nifty tasks to get your home fall-ready.       

  • Furnace Run: Before the temperatures drop too low, it's smart to give your furnace a test run. Listen for any odd sounds and maybe even schedule a professional check-up to ensure you’re toasty warm all winter.
  • Seal the Deal: Drafts can be pesky, sneaking in through windows and doors, chilling your home. Do a quick draft-check and seal up any gaps with weather stripping or caulk. It's an easy fix that'll save on heating bills and keep you cozy.
  • Chimney Sweep: If you've got a fireplace, it's a good idea to ensure it's clean and safe before you start roasting those marshmallows. An annual chimney sweep is a smart move, and it'll set the mood for a season full of fireside chats.
  • Lawn Love: As the growth slows down, give your lawn one last mow and fertilize it. This will give it a boost to survive the winter months and pop back up beautifully in spring.
  • Outdoor Furniture: If you’re not using them, it's time to clean, cover, or store your outdoor furniture pieces. Protect them from the elements so they're ready to shine again come spring.
  • Safety First: With the change in season, it's a great reminder to check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Replace batteries if needed and test them out to ensure they're in tip-top shape.

So, while you're breaking out the fall fashion and daydreaming of flavorful autumn meals, remember your home needs a little seasonal switch-up too. With this checklist in hand, you'll be all set to enjoy a fabulous fall in your comfy, well-prepped home. Cheers to the upcoming season!
