Read below for some Houston home maintenance tips to keep your home and your budget feeling new.

Indoor Home Maintenance

  1. September is a great time to get your A/C and heating systems checked. Call in a professional HVAC company to inspect your system, safety controls, and check for leaks in your ductwork.
  2. While you’re at it, go ahead and get that fireplace inspected and cleaned out of creosote.
  3. When’s the last time you checked the weatherstripping on your doors? Take this month to inspect and replace any weatherstripping before the weather turns cold this winter!

Outdoor Home Maintenance

  1. Ever thought of cleaning and lubricating your garage door? Give your garage door some TLC this month and get rid of the squeaks!
  2. Do a little pest prevention before the weather turns cooler this fall. Check the exterior of your home for any ‘entrances’ and make repairs as necessary. Also, trim back any limbs that hang within four feet of your home to prevent pests from crawling from nearby trees onto your roof.
  3. How are those gutters looking? During the next rain, check to make sure your gutters are draining properly. If you have leaks or clogs, take appropriate action to keep your gutters clear and functioning properly all fall and winter long!
