Top Five Fall Maintenance Checklist

The Season has officially changed, and the inevitable Fall tasks are knocking at the door. No need to fret, Allbrite compiled a Fall Maintenance Checklist for you. It’s important to prep your home for each Season to ensure the longevity and the integrity of your home. Spending the time maintaining your home regularly will help avoid major headaches and ultimately save you money in the long run. Whether you are able to do the things on this checklist, or if you need to hire a professional, it’s vital to ensure they are completed!

1. Gutter Debris Cleaning-

Get your gutters cleaned from all debris! Your gutters are there to divert water away from the foundation of your home so keeping them clear and running smoothly is important.

2. Inspect Your Roof-

From top to bottom you want to check your roof for misshaped, loose, or missing shingles. Check the metal flashing around vents and chimneys for any damage. If you have a leak, stopping the problem before wind and ice start will help prevent disasters.

3. Pressure Wash Flat Surfaces-

Front porch, walkways, driveways and any stepping stones that are used on a regular basis should be free from green algae and mildew. Pressure washing these surfaces before Winter comes will help avoid those nasty slip and falls.

4. Winterize Your Outdoor Faucets-

Shut-off any valves that lead to your outdoor faucets before freezing temperatures. This ensures your outdoor faucet doesn’t freeze and burst.

5. Heating System Inspected-

Before you know it, you’ll be switching to your heating system. It’s a good idea to have your system checked by a professional before using to ward off any future issues.
