Seven Steps to a Happy Home in October

Home Improvement

Want to keep your home in tip-top shape?

These seven simple steps will help a lot! 

  • Colder weather means more time inside. Change the air filter in your furnace--and while you're at it, your car, too!
  • Make sure your fire extinguishers are still operational.
  • Check your dryer and make sure it's free of lint. Clean the lint screen and make sure the laundry exhaust is clear, as well.
  • Check your fireplace--make sure that flue opens and closes with ease.
  • Drain and winterize your sprinkler system. Don't have one? Then drain your exterior hose bibbs (and the hose) and turn off water access to those pipes from the inside.
  • Scrub your outdoor furniture and put it away so it's ready for next spring.
  • This time of year is PERFECT for aerating and fertilizing your lawn. Don't have an aerator? Rent one here!

With happy home gratitude,
