Your End-of-Summer Home Upkeep Checklist

Just as you are probably preparing a checklist for the coming holiday season, you should also be jotting down home maintenance tasks that need to be accomplished before the guests start pouring in and the festivities begin.

Already feeling overwhelmed? Don’t be! Here are a few suggestions for your end-of-summer home maintenance checklist.

Paint the House

The simplest way to prepare your home for the coming season is to paint it. A fresh coat of paint on your home’s exterior will give passersby something beautiful to view. Similarly, new paint on your interior walls can make your home feel like new. This is a good thing, especially if you prefer spending the fall season indoors curled up with a cup of something warm.

Clean Your Filters

Air filters need to be cleaned regularly and replaced every 90 days or during the changing of the seasons. A clogged or dirty air filter puts unnecessary strain on your HVAC unit, making uniform heating and cooling in your home more difficult to achieve.

Check Your Gutters

Clear out your gutters, and make it debris-free before the chill sets in, and it becomes too cold to do anything outside the house. You’ll also be sparing your gutters from becoming clogged come winter.

Clean the Chimney

This is the perfect time to light up your fireplace and relax by the hearth. But before you can do that, you need to make sure that the fireplace and chimney are clean and safe to use.

Fix the Plumbing

You’ll most likely be entertaining guests and relatives right around this time, so make sure everything in your house is in good working condition, including your plumbing.
