Maintenance Checklist For the Fall Season

Written by Casey Shearns on . Posted in .

As the summer months start to draw to a close, the crisp air and multicolored leaves of fall draw ever closer. It’s also a time when you should start to plan ahead when it comes to home maintenance. As pretty of a season as fall can be, it has the potential to cause a lot of problems for your home if you aren’t careful. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t plan ahead! It’s important to have a checklist of things to do during the season. We break down the most important tasks to add to the list below!

Start Cleaning Your Gutters

There’s a reason why autumn gets the nickname fall in the first place: because your leaves fall from the trees after changing color! While it sounds like a routine event, it’s important to be mindful of where exactly these leaves land. Leaves are the most common source of gutter clogging, which is a serious problem! It leads to water pooling on your roof, seeping through it to damage your home’s foundation underneath. Regularly cleaning your gutters will help to ensure that you aren’t plagued by this problem throughout the season.

Inspect Your Roof

The earlier you inspect your roof during the fall months, the better off you’ll be in the long run! Roof inspections tend to fly under the radar for a lot of homeowners because they don’t think that the task is that important. However, a small issue can balloon into larger problems once the snow starts to pick up! Inspecting your roof early in the season will allow you to detect problems like missing and broken shingles before snow ever has a chance to mess it up further. You’ll be able to fix problems before the winter to prevent them from manifesting into larger issues later.

Hire A Handyman/Licensed Professional

If you’ve noticed any problems with your home’s systems, a handyman and/or licensed professional (plumber/electrician) can help stamp out the issues before they balloon into more costly ones! They’ll be able to scope out issues that you won’t normally see, such as leaky or loose plumbing and faulty wiring on your heating unit. They’ll be able to snuff out these problems quickly so you won’t be susceptible to flood or fire damage that can occur if left unchecked.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
