September Home Maintenance Projects!

by The Domis Team

September is the perfect time to tackle those home maintenance projects! Although southern California might not experience as drastic of seasonal changes as other regions in the country do, keep your home in tip top shape as the weather starts to cool down. Here are the best projects both inside and outside to complete this September!

 

Seal and insulate your home. Making sure that your home is well insulated ensures that your home maintains an appropriate temperature regardless of the season and can help you save money in the long run. You can make a larger investment by improving the insulation in your home and adding energy-efficient windows. For quicker, cheaper fixes, check all of your windows and doors for drafty areas. Replace or add weather stripping around these areas. Place dye-cut foam outlet seals behind wall plates to keep air from leaving through electrical outlets on exterior walls.

 

Take care of the heating and cooling systems. Maintaining your homes heat and air conditioning systems is important to keep your family comfortable and prevent more expensive maintenance issues in the future. September is the perfect time to check these systems as the service companies will be dealing with less emergency projects. Hire a professional to come check these systems and make any improvements as necessary. In between these tune-ups, stay on top of cleaning and replacing air filters as needed.

 

Inspect for leaks. You do not want to wait for heavy rains to discover leaks! This can lead to costly damage. Inspect the underside of your roof and look for moisture in the insulation or joints. If you find problem areas, keep note of the spots and contact a professional to repair the leaks. Along with the roof, you want to check your basement, if you have one. Make sure there are no cracks, plants growing inside, gaps in doors and windows, or erosion. Seal leaks during nice September days so everything will properly dry.  

 

Clean the gutters. Grab the ladder and clean out your gutters and downspouts. You want them to be cleared out so water does not accumulate. If you have a problem with a lot of debris, consider installing gutter guards. While cleaning your gutters, make sure that everything is firmly in place and flush with the roof. Check that the downspouts are directing water far away from your home’s foundation.

 

Prevent pests. When the weather starts to cool, pests can try to find a warm place in your home. They can cause a lot of property damage and are a health hazard. Make sure that there are no branches hanging over your roof that pests can use as easy access to your home. Keep branches at least 4 feet away from the house. If you hear pests in your home, contact a professional to deal with the issue immediately.

 

 

Follow these steps to keep your family comfortable and happy in your home this fall and winter. For more home improvement tips for your Whittier area home, check our website at http://lindadomis.com/ for helpful information!
