Six Easy Steps to Winterize Your Home This Season

by | Oct 23, 2018 | Home & Garden

 it is essential to take the proper steps to maintain your home and minimize damages. These six easy steps will help protect your home and ensure peace of mind this winter.
Step 1: Clean your roof and check for damages. Making sure your roof is cleared of fallen leaves and pine needles can save you a lot of pain in the future.  Clean your roof and blow away unwanted debris. Double check for any damages, and get repairs completed before the first rain of the season.
Step 2: Caulk around windows and doors. Check all of the wood trim around your windows and doors to make sure it is sealed.
Step 3: Remove leaves from rain gutters
Check all of your rain gutters and make sure they are clear of leaves.  Clearing your rain gutters is an easy way to prevent damage to your property and will save you in the long run.
Step 4: Check and clean your chimney flues for backed up soot. This build-up can prevent the proper ventilation of your chimney, which can lead to carbon monoxide creeping back into your house. Get these cleaned out and swept as soon as possible.
Step 5: Inspect your furnace, change filter, and check carbon-monoxide and smoke alarms.
Keeping your furnace maintained allows it to work at its maximum HVAC efficiency and ensures there are no carbon monoxide leaks. Make sure the filter is changed and check your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors to confirm they are working properly.
Step 6: Mulch Leaves instead of Raking
Mulching leaves during the fall can help keep your lawns nourished for the winter.  This saves you time and energy from raking in bags full of those fall leaves.
