As the warm summer months end, make sure that your home is ready for the cooler months ahead. The change in seasons means that your home will need a little TLC. Here are five tips to get your home fall-proof! 1) Clean out your gutters Falling leaves can leave your gutters clogged. Clogged drains can lead to various issues, including water damage, a leaky roof, and pest infestations. Gutter damage can be costly, so make sure you clean out your gutters before fall! 2) Wash your windows Washing your windows and checking your screens for repairs is a must before fall. Your windows may appear clean, but the grime from summer storms, pollen, and dust can make your windows dirty. 3) Check your heating system The cool fall months are just a precursor to the chilly winter days, so you want to ensure that your heating system works properly. Having someone do a maintenance check early in the fall will guarantee that you will not be scrambling to find a repair company later on in the season. 4) Put your outdoor furniture into storage Everyone loves their outdoor living spaces, so make sure you put your outdoor furniture into storage to prevent damage. As the cooler months settle in, your furniture may not be able to withstand the changing elements. 5) Check for drafts Checking your windows and doors for drafts may seem unnecessary, but it can make a world of difference for your home's temperature. If you notice drafts, using draft stoppers or weatherstripping your windows
