As of today it is officially fall! We don't know where summer went but we are enjoying the leaves changing and the crispness in the air.
With the cooler temperatures comes some home and yard maintenance that we recommend getting to before the ❄️ falls. A few things are:
Change the furnace filter
Clean out the dryer vent
Disconnect any outside sump pump hose
Put rain spouts up to avoid freezing
Put a cover on your A/C unit
Drain and pack-up garden hoses (and winterize sprinkler system)
Rake the leaves and other yard debris
Cover trees and winter sensitive plants
Just like with anything else, the more care you put into your home maintenance the less issues you'll (hopefully) have down the road.
