OKC Realtors Providing Fall Home Maintenance Tips

OKC Realtors: Beginning a new season

It’s about to be a fun, colorful display of all the changing leaves and the crisp air will greet you when you leave the house. School is in full swing by now and OKC realtor team has much to do as the feeling of fall settles around us. With the month of September charging to a rapid close and October being right around the corner, our OKC realtor team has been thinking about fall. With all that being said, we have to say it’s time to start preparing your homes for fall. Here, we have provided a list of fall home maintenance to get you headed in the right direction.

Fall home cleaning tips from our OKC realtor team:

1.) Give your gutters a good cleaning.
2.) Test your heater for proper functioning.
3.) Clean out your dryer ducts.
4.) Check exterior for peeling paint.
5.) Re-caulk around windows and door frames.
6.) Check the roof for any damage.

There’s nothing worse than going into the cooler, rainier months with a damaged roof and not knowing it. As far as the other action items go it just makes good sense to do them, because getting your windows and doors sealed up helps to keep heat in and lowers your energy costs. Exterior paint being chipped can’t protect your home’s siding. Furthermore, dryer ducts pose fire risks if clogged as do the gutters. Finally, the heater functioning is pretty important.

Our OKC realtor team knows that you’re busy, but taking a little time to check up on these issues will save time and money in the long run. Our OKC realtor team also feels that aside from these basic tips we should encourage people to check their carbon monoxide and smoke detectors! We hope these fall home maintenance tips will help get your home prepared for the fall months to follow.
