Fall/Winter Home Maintenance Checklist

With almost all of the leaves out of the trees and on the ground, it's impossible to ignore - fall is well underway, and winter is just around the corner. As the temperature continues to drop and the snowy months draw closer and closer, it's time for homeowners to take care of a few important seasonal maintenance tasks. Eagle's Nest Realty is here to help you stay on top of the tasks with this quick and easy checklist.

Fall/Winter Home Maintenance Checklist

Home Interior
  • Check window and door frames for cracks and seal them as needed.
  • Have your fireplace inspected.
  • Reverse your ceiling fans so they rotate clockwise (to push warm air back down).
  • Have your furnace inspected.
  • Check insulation in the attic.

Home Exterior
  • Seal around all places where pipes or wires enter the house.
  • Replace screens in storm doors with windows.
  • Clean fallen leaves, twigs, and other debris out of gutters.
  • Inspect roof for damage and make any necessary repairs.
  • Make sure you have a snow shovel and plenty of de-icer on hand.

Lawn & Garden
  • Drain garden hoses and store them indoors
  • Empty all pots and store them indoors.
  • Rake the leaves and remove them from the yard.
  • Drain the remaining fuel from lawn mowers, leaf blowers, and chain saws.
  • Lay down grass seed where needed.
