Home Tasks

  • Inspect weather stripping around doors and windows and repair or replace if necessary.
  • Set thermostats and automatic sprinklers for winter.
  • Clean gutters after leaves have fallen. Make sure downspouts are in good repair.
  • Check gauges on home fire extinguishers to ensure a full charge. Replace if necessary.
  • Paint interior rooms while it’s still cool enough to leave windows open. Ditto for shampooing or replacing carpets.
  • Unclogging the drains. Inspect your sink drains and tub for debris. Pour 1/2 cup of baking soda down into the drains followed by 1/2 cup of vinegar. Leave for 3 hours, and then run water. You can also use any other noncorrosive drain cleaner to unclog your drain.
