09/13/2018

As summer comes to an end, and the leaves twirl down to the wet ground, you know Fall is arriving. This means rain, cold nights, and cozy morning holidays throughout the season. But, it also means that it’s time to take down your summer flair and prepare your house for the wet, windy season upon us. Check what we think are the most important tips for prepping your home for Fall!

  • Inspect indoor parts of your house. The change in temperature can be abrupt or gradual. But either way, it’s always best to check on facilities that might help you adjust to the cold months ahead. Things like the furnace, HVAC system, fireplace, or even indoor pipes may need some repairs or cleaning before they can function for a long term.

  • Say goodbye to dust. With humid days in summer, it’s not surprising that the dry weather can invite unwelcome visitors into your home. Relax! It’s not Freddy Krueger or Michael Myers knocking on your doorstep. Instead, they gather over your window panes, floor, furniture, or hide in your carpet. But unlike some characters in summer horror blockbusters, you can do something about them. Keep the dust away from your home by maintaining cleanliness, which can prevent colds or health problems that can get worse with the cold weather.

  • Customize your space. Remodeling your home to fit with the season may be necessary. Either you change your bedspreads with thicker clothes or repaint your walls to retain that warm feeling, you can always choose to do so with the help of contractors or your friends.

  • Prepare your yard. The fall can lead your outdoor property to change.. If you want your lawn or plants to survive in weather changes, applying fertilizer may help them cope. It’s also necessary to inspect outdoor hosts and faucets and shut them off when necessary as cold temperature can affect them.

The frigid seasons are right around the corner and now is the best time to start cozying up to your place. Stay warm and comfortable with your loved ones and stick around for more tips on how to prepare your home for fall!
