October Home Maintenance Tasks

Every month, we share easy tasks you can do to keep your home in tip-top shape all year long. So here are a few simple tasks you can take on in October!

Pack Away The Air Conditioner – If you use a seasonal air conditioning unit, then now is the time to pack it up for winter! Make sure to spend a few extra minutes cleaning all the filters and coils well. It will keep the unit in great shape and it will last much longer.

Winterize External Plumbing Systems – It’s much better to prepare for freezing temperatures before it’s freezing! Winterize all exposed outdoor pipes and you’ll avoid the trouble when there is snow or ice on the ground.  Here’s a quick video I put together a couple of years ago to show you how to winterize your sprinkler system – http://youtu.be/L9U5020_SJE

Check Your Carbon Monoxide Detector – This is an important one! October is a great time to check your carbon monoxide detector to make sure it is performing well. Change the batteries, test it, and replace older units.

Clean Up For Halloween – Trick-or-treating can be a liability hazard! Clean up any loose limbs, fill holes in the yard, and remove any fire hazard Halloween decorations before kids are running to your door.

Save on Home Insurance – Homeowners Insurance is an important part of protecting your belongings. To make sure you have the best coverage, call Pinnacle Point Insurance today for a free, no obligation quote.
