Fall Checklist, Getting Ready for Winter
As leaves start to fly, revisit your spring cleaning list and add a few seasonal extras to prepare your house for the winter.
The new season should always begin with a fresh start, especially in your home. Is your home ready for the beautiful autumn weather in Upstate NY? We've done our research and with a bit of help from Real Simple, we can help you get through your fall cleaning checklist!
Check out your wooden floors are they scuffed up? See if they need to be sanded or refurbished.
Test all of your home smoke and carbon monoxide detectors; especially as you go through the months with more active fireplaces and with your heat turned up.
Replace Furnace Filters. If you changed your furnace filter in the last three months, now is a good time to do it!
Don't forget the outside of your home too!
Check and clean the gutters before the red and orange leaves fall!
Time to drain and store your garden hoses, don't let them freeze when the first snow falls.
Touch up the paint on your home
