As the summer heat fades and we transition into fall, it’s a good time to take a check of your home and see what can be improved. Do you have a seasonal home-maintenance checklist? This can be a great way for you to keep your home up to date without letting an important chore slip through the cracks.
When creating your checklist this season, don’t forget to include the following:
Replace the filter(s) on your home heating and cooling system to keep the air in your home clean and freely flowing.
Clean and examine bathroom vent fans to keep them running efficiently and quietly.
When was the last time you cleaned your range hood, filter and fan? Use a citrus-based cleaner to cut through the grease.
Vacuum your refrigerator coils. When the coils get dirty, your fridge runs less efficiently.
Check the driveway and pavement for cracks and make plans to have them resealed before winter.
Don’t be that house on the block with the overgrown yard, peeling paint and home-improvement list a mile long. Creating a checklist can help put your home maintenance on auto-pilot so you won’t forget the details.
