Posted on September 27th, 2016
Now that fall is officially here, it’s time to start thinking about home maintenance. It’s the perfect time to start focusing on those home improvement projects that you put off all summer long. Here are a few maintenance tips you’ll want to add to your to-do list.
Fall Maintenance Tips:
Check For Leaks – It’s easy to get caught up in your day-to-day routines and overlook that dripping faucet. Take the time to address any plumbing fixture leaks, as well as check exposed pipes under cabinets and in your basement for leaks.
Schedule Water Heater Maintenance – Water heaters need annual maintenance in order to run smoothly. Fall is the perfect time to finally schedule your maintenance checkup. This will prevent future breakdowns and keep minerals from building up inside of your tank.
Maintain Your Garbage Disposal – Between pumpkin carving and Thanksgiving feasts, fall festivities can put a lot of strain on your garbage disposal. Inspect your disposal and keep it clean by tossing a few ice cubes down next to you have it running.
Update Your Fixtures – Welcome the new season with a new kitchen faucet or showerhead. This is a great way to update your home on a budget. As an added bonus, newer models use water more efficiently.
