It’s Time for September Sweep!

September Sweep

.

Mark your calendars, folks! The weekend after Labor Day may not be the official start of fall — the first day of fall is September 22 — but it may as well be.  Which means, it’s time for another September Sweep!

Schools are back in session, neighborhood pools are closed and white pants are officially off limits. It’s also the ideal time to clean up all the grime summer left behind, as well as prep for the cooler temperatures to come.

Trust us: Gutters are way easier to clean when they’re not clogged to start with. Oh, and frozen pipes are actually preventable if you winterize your sprinklers before the cold sets in.

Enjoy the ultimate guide to getting your home ready for fall, courtesy of Patch and HomeAdvisor. Here’s what to do and who to hire now so you can start enjoying fall ASAP. Happy September Sweep!

 

Outdoors

Winterize Sprinklers: Any water left in the sprinkler system or pipes could freeze, crack and ruin the system. This inexpensive task can save more than $1000 in total replacement.

Find a Local Sprinkler Service


Gutter Cleaning: The leaves likely haven’t fallen yet but get ready. Gutters that are full of leaves can hold water and pull down your entire gutter system, and sometimes parts of your roof.

Find a Local Gutter Cleaning Service


Weatherstripping: This little task can pay for itself with the savings you’ll see on on your energy bill. Filling the gaps around doors and windows will ensure you’re warming your home, not your neighborhood.

Find a Local Weatherstripping Contractors


Window Caulking/Inspection: Caulking around the windows also helps keep heat from escaping. While you’re at it, have someone inspect the integrity of your windows. If they are more than 25 years old, it’s likely time for new ones.

Find a Local Handyman


Roof Inspection: This is your first line of defense against the weather. A quick roof inspection by a professional can tell you if you have any weak spots that could cause serious damage during the bad weather.

Find a Local Roof Inspector

 

Indoors

Carpet Cleaning: Sand. Need we say more? Get rid of the grit and grime that summer left behind with a professional carpet cleaning before fall.

Find a Local Professional Carpet Cleaner


One-Time Deep Clean: Sanitizing kitchen areas, bathrooms and everything in between after a long, hot summer is crucial to starting fall so fresh and so clean. 

Find a Local Professional Maid Service


Furnace Tuneup: Naturally, you need to change your furnace filter if you haven’t since last winter, but also hire a furnace repairman to make sure your unit is tip-top. A quick tune up can identify problems before they start, and also help optimize your system for the brutal months ahead.

Find a Local HVAC Professional


Odds & Ends:Of course if you have special items like a pool, water feature, or hedges to protect from the cold weather, now is the time. If you beat the rush, you can always find a contractor who has the time. However, if you wait until the busy season to contact a pro, you might be waiting for a while.
