September Monthly Home Maintenance Tips
It’s that time of year again! As the temperature starts to cool down and the leaves start to change color, we all know that fall is just around the corner. And with fall comes a whole host of chores and tasks to keep your home in tip-top shape. Here are some September monthly home maintenance tips to help you get started.
As we head into fall, it’s important to check your roof for any damage that may have occurred over the summer months. High winds and severe storms can wreak havoc on your shingles, so be sure to inspect them closely for any signs of wear and tear. If you notice any missing or damaged shingles, be sure to replace them as soon as possible to prevent further damage.
Another maintenance task to take care of in September is weatherstripping doors and windows. This simple task can go a long way in keeping your home warm and cozy all winter long. Just be sure to use high-quality weatherstripping that will stand up to the elements. Cheap materials will only end up costing you more in the long run.
With the cooler temperatures of fall, now is a great time to fertilize your lawn. This will give your grass a boost of nutrients that it needs to stay green and healthy all season long. Aerating your lawn will also help improve its drainage and reduce compaction. And don’t forget to rake up those fallen leaves! They can suffocate your grass if left unchecked.
Last but not least, as the weather starts to cool down, it’s time for a tune-up on your HVAC system. This will help ensure that it runs smoothly all winter long – when you need it most. Once per year, hire a professional to clean and inspect your system, including all ductwork. This may seem like a lot of work (and money), but trust us – it’s worth it! Your family will be grateful when they’re not waking up in the middle of the night shivering from the cold.
By following these simple September monthly home maintenance tips, you’ll be well on your way to keeping your home in top condition all winter long. By taking care of these tasks now, you’ll be able to enjoy the cooler weather without having to worry about repairs or upkeep later on down the road. So get out there and get started! Your home will thank you for it.
