Home Maintenance Tips: A Comprehensive Fall Guide
RWC’s new home warranties are packed with “value added” features – features that provide heightened security, resale value, and an important measure of peace of mind for homeowners.
Yes, it’s essential that you have a strong home warranty under your belt to ensure home protection; but don’t just stop there. There are additional ways to ensure your home holds up over time, including seasonal maintenance inspections.
A part of being a responsible homeowner is checking on things before they go haywire. Inspecting your home on a regular basis and following good maintenance practices is one of the surest ways to keep your home happy all year long. Plus, these regularly scheduled seasonal maintenance inspections can help prevent costly problems from occurring.
If you haven’t completed your fall maintenance inspection, there’s no time like the present! Fall is the time to get your home ready for the coming winter, which is often the most grueling season for your home.
There are a number of indoor and outdoor maintenance tasks to complete each fall. 'Tis the season to service your heating system, check your chimneys and electrical systems, clean your chimneys, gutters and ridge vents, fortify your home’s exterior, check the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors, and so on. Though tempting, it’s important that you do not overlook these important tasks. If you do, you are likely to pay…literally. Plus, many of these items left undone can be major safety hazards.
For a complete fall maintenance checklist, we invite you to take a look at our handy resource.
And remember, if you don’t have the time or energy to conduct these periodic home maintenance inspections yourself, there’s always the option of paying someone to do the dirty work! Either way, it’s in your home’s best interest to get these seasonal items checked off your list of to-dos.
