Don’t Skip These 5 Fall Maintenance Tasks | Home buying and selling

Your home is a huge investment — an investment you’ll want to protect for the long haul. That means proper maintenance is key! Completing seasonal chores can help extend the life span and cut down on repair/renovation costs of your house while also increasing its value in today’s competitive market environment; after all, who doesn’t love saving money?!
A few simple tasks like power washing or filling cracks will add years onto what might have been considered just another “spring cleaning.” As always though make sure that any work done meets specific criteria (code requirements) before attempting anything too risky such as installing new flooring when there may already be issues with weakness below ground level from previous flooding disasters .

Fall is the best time to get your home in tip top shape. And with five must-do tasks, you can make sure that it stays perfect year round!

Check for and seal any air leaks around windows or doors, which can make it hard to control the climate of your home. In wintertime that means sky-high heating bills as well as uncomfortable living conditions year round!

If you want to protect your home from the damages that can happen with standing water, then it’s important for Gutters and Downspouts maintenance. For example: wind-driven rainwater may cause damage such as leaks or erosion on foundation walls; if an attic access point becomes clogged due to leaves etc., this will stop proper ventilation which could lead everything inside (including insulation) getting wet eventually resulting in expensive losses!
While these problems may not seem major at first glance – we assure they’re anything but trivial once taken into full consideration.

Every year, it’s important to inspect your roof for any signs of wear or damage. At the very least you’ll need an annual inspection- if not more often than that!
A leaky roof can cause huge problems like water contamination which will lead in many cases to costly repairs due both from monetary loss as well as health risks associated with mold exposure; so don’t wait until there are obvious leaks before taking these steps.

Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors! This is a must. Keep these vital safety devices in good working condition by putting them into test mode, making sure they are all functioning properly with fresh batteries every six months or so of year before storing for the long winter’s night.”

It’s important to have your furnace inspected once per year. The safety of the unit depends on it!
It can pose serious fire hazards, as well as risks associated with general negligence or improper maintenance and these issues may simply go unnoticed if you don’t take a look at yours frequently enough.

You’ll be glad you did it when these tasks are done.
It’s not hard to check off your list, and the payoff is worth more than what went into accomplishing them!
