Prepare Your Home for Autumn

The transition from summer to autumn is a good time to prepare your Lafayette home for the change of seasons. Here are a few job ideas to get you started:

Declutter Your Gutters: Gutters that are cluttered with debris will obstruct the flow of water and cause water damage to your home. Fall’s a good time to have these structures thoroughly cleaned.

Seal Up Your Home: Avoid the entrance of cool drafts by sealing up windows and doors in your home. Weather-stripping or caulking these areas will help keep your interior draft free.

Check on the Heat: Before unexpected cold fronts hit, be sure to inspect your heating system and ensure it is working properly. Quality heating will let you enjoy a warm and cozy atmosphere throughout the winter season.

Groom the Fireplace: There’s nothing like gathering around the fireplace on cold winter nights for fun and fellowship. Make sure yours is up to par by scheduling a cleanup by a reliable chimney sweep.

Home Inspection: Cold weather means more indoor time with family and friends. Be sure your environment is safe by inspecting fire alarms and smoke detectors and getting rid of junk and clutter.
