7 Fall Home Maintenance Chores

Your home requires regular maintenance in order to survive changing weather conditions. While California homeowners certainly have less home maintenance tasks on their to do lists, it is still important to cover the basics. Gathered is a list of 7 fall home maintenance chores to get complete before the fall season arrives:

  1. Homeowners who fail to give their downspouts and gutters the attention they require end up regretting the decision once the rain begins to fall. Dirty and full gutters and downspouts can lead to flooding, which is not covered under your standard homeowners’ insurance policy.
  2. Even though California winters are not too harsh, we still depend on our heating systems to keep us warm. If you will be using your heating system, be sure to hire a professional HVAC worker to check that it is running properly.
  3. Likewise, you will also want to hire a professional roofer to make sure that your roof is in good condition and ready to fight off whatever storms come our way this winter.
  4. Be sure to clean your chimney and fireplace before using it for a romantic evening by the fire!
  5. As you turn the clocks back for fall, be sure to replace the batteries in all of your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure that they will warn you of an emergency.
  6. There is an overwhelming amount of filters around your home. Be sure to clean each of them, and replace if necessary. You will be breathing in fresh air in no time!
  7. One of the most exciting fall home maintenance chores is putting away the summer toys and breaking out the fall decorations, pumpkin scented everything, of course!
