While the fall leaves are beautiful to look at, they can do a number on your home’s exterior. Between yard debris and ragweed pollen, there are a number of seasonal things to be aware of when it comes to your home.
The biggest effect that fall weather has on your home comes from all of the falling leaves. These can clog up your gutters and need to be cleaned out before the winter months hit. If not, the combined weight of fall leaves and winter snow and ice can damage your gutters, leading to repairs or replacements altogether. So, have a professional come out and clean yard debris from your gutters and roof before winter is in full swing.
Another side effect of fall weather is ragweed pollen. Not only can this give you the sniffles, it can also coat your home’s exterior from your vinyl siding to your windows to your porch and deck. A pressure washer is your best bet for cleaning off pollen. It’s best to wait until the pollen counts consistently go down, and then pressure wash these surfaces to remove pollen that has made its home on your home.
Fall is also an ideal time to have any other routine maintenance done on your home. For example, it’s a good idea to have roofers come out to inspect your roof for any leaks or damage. It’s also a good idea to have your HVAC system cleaned and checked out around this time of year as well, because the last thing you want is for your heat to turn off in the middle of the winter.
