End of summer is the perfect time to begin prepping your home for the colder months ahead. Consider these three end-of-summer maintenance items you should have on your to-do list as we head into fall.
Get Bugs and Rodents Under Control
Before hunkering down you’ll want to make sure you’re the only one living in your home, get pests under control by sealing any entryway cracks or holes and deep clean any areas that have had the full summer to accumulate moisture and pest-attracting residue. In Wyoming this is the time of year that we start to see more spiders and mice looking for a warm place to call home.
Check Your Weatherproofing
Cooler months can sometimes bring harsh and unforgiving weather conditions. From torrential fall downpours, to unforgiving blizzards, checking your home for any leaks, missing weather stripping, and holes in insulation will save you headaches and higher utility bills later.
Tend to Your Yard and Landscaping
Early fall is not only the best time to set yourself up for spring success when it comes to a healthy yard, but also is a good time to deal with any lingering debris that could become a habitat for the bugs and rodents we already mentioned.
For those of you who love fall now is also a great time just to be outdoors as you tackle some of these projects. Enjoy the warm fall days!
