Jim Amos Contracting is in the business of improving homes. Therefore, we’re here to deliver some home maintenance tips. Each season presents different tasks to tackle to ensure that your home is at its best. What fall maintenance should have your attention? Let’s take a look at five valuable fall home maintenance tips!
Cleaning the Gutters Should be a Part of Home Maintenance
When autumn leaves fall, it’s a beautiful sight. However, falling leaves can present a problem for gutters. Clogged gutters can result in:
- Roof and Wall Leaks
- Peeling Paint
- Rotting Wood
- Gutter Damage That’s Hard to Repair
If you’re uncertain if your roof or gutters are up-to-par, you can hire us to take care of roof maintenance tasks for you.
Evaluate Your Smoke Detectors
This home maintenance task takes no time to implement. More importantly, it can help save lives. Even if your smoke detector has a power light indicating that it’s operable, you should still hit the “test” button to see if the alarm sounds. If it’s been a long time since you’ve replaced the batteries in your smoke detector, now is an excellent time to do so. Furthermore, it makes a significant difference when carbon monoxide detectors are in the home also.
Hire a Professional to Clean and Inspect Your Chimney
You want to do this before it becomes frigid. You never know when the weather will drop in Maryland. Therefore, this is the perfect opportunity to ensure that your chimney is free from soot buildup.
Ensure that Your Home Won’t be Drafty
One way to ensure that your home isn’t drafty is by investing in handyman services, particularly new window installation. If your windows are drafty and inefficient, our team can install new windows in your home. New, high-quality windows mean that you can look forward to a lower energy bill. In addition, you should have your heating system examined, which can also help you save on energy bills. Every month, change your air filters, ensuring that you follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
Tend to the Trees Surrounding Your Home
Trees are a terrific addition to any property. They cool a property down, purify the air, and add to a home’s curb appeal. However, trees can be problematic during the fall and winter. When inclement weather comes, trees can lean into a home and damage the roof. It would be best to cut back any dead branches, especially if they are hanging over your house.
