What's on your fall to-do list at home?


Start your fall to-do list

Fall is officially here!  If you are anything like me, this means pumpkin spiced lattes, football, lighting fall candles around the house, and scouting out all the local pumpkin patches and activities.  

With the turn of the new season, it also reminds me to get our house ready for the next season.  I've compiled a few of my fall household must-dos to help you prepare your home for the winter months:  

  • Unhook all outdoor hoses.
  • Have chimney/fireplace inspected and cleaned. 
  • Get your HVAC system inspected and maintained.
  • Winterize your sprinkler system.
  • Clean out your gutters. 
  • Test out your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
  • Inspect your trees. Check for broken limbs or those close to electrical lines or the roof.  
  • Empty fuel and clean your lawnmower and trimmer.  

What do you do to get your house ready for the winter months?  I'd love to know so I can add a few more to my 'honey-do' list...Happy Fall!
