It is so easy to forget that there are things you should do in the fall to prep your home for the season. That is because so many things are happening and you likely find yourself going to parties and activities of all sorts. Before you head out for the fall fun though, you should use this checklist from The Sanford Group serving Ball Ground, GA of things to do to prepare your home for fall.
- Clean out the gutters. In the fall, leaves fall to the ground and if you have gutters and trees near your home, then you likely have gutters that are full of leaves. If they are full of leaves, they will not function as they are supposed to. You should take the opportunity to clean them out once all of the leaves have fallen for the season. While you are up there, do a visual inspection of the roof as well.
- Winterize your pipes. if you have an irrigation system, now is the time to winterize the pipes before the first big freeze of winter. The cold will come sooner than you think and it is always a good idea to be prepared.
- Make sure your home insurance does not have any gaps. A good home insurance policy is the best way to protect your home no matter the season. Take a look at your policy or get one so you can be protected.
