Fall Home Maintenance

posted by TrueNorth Risk Management on Thursday, October 20, 2022


By taking the time to maintain your home each season, you can keep common household problems at bay, and prevent costly breakdowns or repairs. 
Most of these tasks can be done by the homeowner - however if you choose to hire a professional, it can be well worth the expense. You'll save money in the long run by preventing costly (and potentially dangerous) damage to your home. 


1. Clean gutters and downspouts.
Clear leaves and debris from gutters and downspouts to prevent flooding and freezing around your foundation.
2. Swap window screens for storm windows.
Remove screens and install storm windows. Clean and repair screens before storing them in the basement or garage. 
3. Check your roof for signs of damage. 
Carefully check your roof for signs of leaks or other damage. Fall is a good time to hire a professional to perform a roof inspection.
4. Clean windows and doors.
Clean windows and any sliding door tracks to ensure they operate smoothly all year long.
5. Prep your lawn.
Rake leaves, fertilize and aerate your lawn so you are prepared when spring arrives!
