Fall Is Here

Fall on the South Shore is beautiful and dramatic – sun, wind, fog, rain, and wind, all often in the same day! With the changing seasons, we need to consider our homes and how to keep them cozy and protected. Some things to consider:

  • Keep our critter friends from entering and making our homes their cozy winter retreat. Check for mouse droppings along the edges of basement floors and under kitchen sinks.
  • Schedule inspections and cleanings of the furnace/fireplace/wood stove.
  • Change the batteries in smoke and CO2 detectors.
  • Rake and mulch fallen leaves, prune plants. Clean and put away garden equipment.
  • Remove garden hoses and turn off water to outside taps.
  • Clean out rain gutters.

Taking care now will help avoid annoying problems in the middle of a cold winter weekend!

There are many lovely days to come – so enjoy the beauty of the Fall colours, and for now, try not to think of the snow to come!
