We’re here to help you keep your home in top shape as the seasons change. Here are some essential maintenance tips to prepare your home for the upcoming fall and winter months.

1. Hurricane Preparedness  As hurricane season continues into the fall, review your emergency kit, secure outdoor furniture, and ensure your windows and doors are fortified.

2. Roof Inspection  Florida’s intense sun and occasional storms can take a toll on roofs. Inspect for any damaged or missing shingles and address them promptly.

3. Air Conditioning Maintenance  Your A/C still works hard in the fall. Change filters regularly and consider a professional inspection to keep it running efficiently.

4. Pool Maintenance  If you’re lucky enough to have a pool, maintain proper chemical balance and keep it clean, even in the cooler months.

5. Pest Control  Florida’s warmth means pests are active year-round. Schedule regular pest control to keep unwelcome visitors at bay.

6. Check Irrigation Systems  Ensure your irrigation system is adjusted to accommodate the changing weather conditions. Overwatering can lead to mold and other issues.

7. Storm Drain Maintenance  Clear storm drains around your property to prevent flooding during heavy rain.

8. Window and Door Seals  Inspect and replace seals around windows and doors. This helps with energy efficiency and keeps out humidity.

9. Lawn Care  Maintain your lawn throughout the fall to prevent it from becoming a breeding ground for pests and mosquitoes.

10. Mold Prevention  Florida’s humidity can lead to mold growth. Use dehumidifiers, fix any leaks promptly, and keep your home well-ventilated.

We hope these tips help you prepare your home for the unique challenges of our climate. Regular maintenance is key to a comfortable and safe Florida home.
