It’s that time of the year again and my gutters are full of leaves.  It’s beautiful outside and I need to take advantage of the great weather before it gets too cold.  Below is a quick reminder for some typical fall home maintenance tips you might want to glance over.

  • Add fuel stabilizer to your mower and any other power equipment
  • Disconnect hoses and turn off outdoor water
  • Blow-out sprinkler system
  • Seal cracks around windows and doors
  • Clean your gutters
  • Locate your snow shovels, sand/salt, etc
  • Make sure radiator fluid in vehicles is full and clean
  • Do a quick visual inspection of your roof
  • Get your furnace serviced and install a new filter
  • Prune your plants
  • Check your chimney and clean if necessary
