Delaware and Pennsylvania Home Tasks to Complete Before Fall

house.jpegFall is nearly here! But before the leaves begin to drop from the trees and we finally turn down the AC, there are a few tasks to tackle around your Delaware and Pennsylvania homes. From cleaning the gutters to turning off the water to the garden hose, I've compiled a list of fall home maintenance tasks to add to your to-do list.

Clean out the gutters
To make room for the leaves and debris that will fall into your DE or PA yard this fall, it's important to clean out your gutters now. While you're on the roof, you can also check for any damaged shingles that may have occurred over the summer and take the necessary steps to repair them.

Turn off outdoor water
You probably have your garden hose hooked up and have used it all summer, but you'll want to turn off that outdoor water supply as the weather begins to get cooler. Of course we can have summer-like temperatures well into October here in Delaware and Pennsylvania, so just keep an eye on the dropping temps to determine when to disable the outdoor plumbing.

Clean and store outdoor furniture
You likely won't be entertaining or lounging on your outdoor furniture during the autumn months, so now is the time to clean your outdoor chairs, tables, and other garden fixtures and put them into storage for the winter. At the very least, consider investing in a cover to shield your furniture from the elements over the next few months.

Inspect your furnace
When the temperatures drop, we'll reach for the thermostat, but make sure yours has been inspected by a professional and is in excellent working condition before you throw it into overdrive. Now is the perfect opportunity to make an appointment as HVAC experts' schedules will quickly fill up as we get closer to winter.

Organize a mudroom
If you don't have your entryway stocked with floor mats for dirty (and wet!) shoes, coat hooks, and an umbrella stand, take a weekend and organize accordingly. With wet weather and colder air comes the need for bulkier clothing and footwear, so you'll want to have a space to keep it stored and easily accessible.
