Autumn Maintenance Tips Every Homeowner Needs To Complete This Season

 


Summer is coming to an end, and as the leaves start to change colors and the cool winds rush in, homeowners know to start preparing for the fall season. And some chores are essential this season— especially if you want to enter it without any issues! So we have the perfect list for you to start before the official change in season.
 

Clean Your Gutters

Most homeowners are probably tired of hearing this, but it’s essential to give your gutters a good clean this fall season! When leaves and debris pile up in your systems, it can cause water to pool and fall in areas around your roof and siding, which could lead to water damage. This puts both your interior and exterior in danger of water damage!
 

Check Roof

Homeowners need to make sure they check their roof for any leaks or cracks, as fall can bring in some rainy days. Hurricane season doesn’t end until late November, so the longer you go without checking up on your roof, the more at risk your home is to water damage.
 

Get Your Air Ducts Cleaned

You have been using your air conditioning all summer long, so your system has been working hard. But is it entirely clean? Over time, your ducts can pile up with dust and debris. Now is the time to get an air duct cleaning so you can start breathing easy all fall long!

Water Damage Facts and Myths

 

The question is not if your home will ever experience water damage, but when. Water damage is one of the most common home disasters, but some homeowners don't know what to do when it happens. Many myths surround this type of home damage, but many are not true.

We have some of the top myths and facts about water damage so that you can enter the rest of this hurricane season prepared!
 

Preventative Measures

Myth: All types of water damage are preventable.

Fact: The truth is that some water damage incidents are unavoidable. Flooding, for example, has many causes, including natural disasters like storms or accidents like broken pipes. Be sure to keep an eye out in vulnerable areas such as under your sink or near appliances so you know when an issue has occurred.
 

Standing Water

Myth: Many believe it's not too bad if you have standing water in your basement or crawlspace.

Fact: Standing water is dangerous because mold spores may grow on the walls, flooring, ceiling tiles, and insulation. The moisture content can also cause these materials to rot, which could cause issues with your home's foundation.
 

Isolated Water Issues

Myth: The flood only happened in one room, so it's just an isolated incident.

Fact: Just because the flood was isolated, it does not mean that the water damage stayed only in that room. Water is sneaky! It can seep into other parts of your home undetected for hours before it's noticed, which makes water damage very hard to detect and easy to forget.

Waiting Period

Myth: You can wait before hiring a restoration company after flooding or other incidents.

Fact: Waiting could cause more problems, like mold growth and additional structural damages. If there is any visible standing water in your home, you should call for help right away so that professional cleanup services can come to solve the problem before it builds and gets even worse.

5 Ways to Celebrate National Lazy Mom’s Day

 

We all know how hard-working moms can be! Whether they are working late or helping around the house, being a mom can be hard work. That is why National Lazy Mom’s Day was created— to give every mother out there a chance to have a relaxing day. And we have some great tips to make the most out of today:
 

Stay in Pajamas

The best way to have a full-on lazy day is to stay in your pajamas all day long. Not only are your PJs more comfortable, but also you don’t have to worry about choosing something to wear or going out. Just kick back, relax, and snuggle up in your most comfortable clothing.
 

Order Out

Cooking can be a lot of work, so why not skip out on measuring and boiling and consider ordering some food! Everything is already prepared for you— with all your favorites being available to you whenever you’d like. What better way to celebrate today!

Take Time to Relax

It’s essential to take this time to find an opportunity to relax and destress from everyday life. Whether that be watching television, getting some extra sleep, doing some yoga, or meditating, finding time in the day to sit back and take it easy can be the best form of laziness out there.

Enjoy The Outdoors

The weather is still nice outside, so now is the perfect time to enjoy the last few summery days. Lay out and catch some sun, or take a nap in your hammock— either way, there are plenty of ways to stay lazy while enjoying the outdoors.
