Here’s Your Fall Home Maintenance Checklist

Fall has officially arrived in Indiana—and that means that the winter season isn’t far behind. Get ready for the winter season by buttoning up your home, cleaning up your yard and making sure safety hazards are taken care of.

Here’s a fantastic checklist with tips from HouseLogic, Bob Vila, and Better Homes and Gardens to help you get ready.

  1. Check your gutters and clean out any debris that will restrict water flow
  2. Check your roof for any damage and make repairs if needed
  3. Seal up cracks around windows and doors to keep heat in (and critters out)
  4. Change your furnace filter
  5. And get your furnace an annual inspection
  6. Check out your fireplace and chimney for any damage or blockages
  7. Clean dryer vents
  8. Prune plants, rake leaves and store your mower
  9. Drain and turn off sprinkler system so water doesn’t freeze inside and cause issues
  10. Store hoses and turn off outdoor water sources
  11. Check walkways and the driveway for any damage (this could be a safety hazard when ice forms)
  12. Inspect smoke detectors, CO2 detectors, fire extinguishers, etc. to make sure they’re working properly

This may seem like a lofty list, but once it’s all done you’ll be able to rest easy and stay warm and cozy in your home.
