Maintenance of your Council Bluffs home or business is vital because it helps prevent damage from occurring over time. Loess Hills Handyman specializes in interior and exterior repair and maintenance. To get started, below is a home maintenance checklist for this fall:
Check Your Electrical Systems
It is clear that electrical systems play a crucial role in keeping your home safe. Properly functional electrical outlets, wiring, and fuse boxes prevent electrical fires, keep the furnace running on cold fall or winter days and nights, and power lights and appliances, among many other functions. Loess Hills Handyman does basic electrical repair on outlets, wiring, and fuse box systems.
If you are noticing any potential or reoccuring problems with your electrical, contact Loess Hills Handyman for your basic electrical needs. If one of our affiliated handymen can't resolve the issue, we can recommend a local electrician
Install Quality Weatherstripping
Weatherstripping is designed to stop air from escaping through cracks and crevices, especially around doors and window. This prevents moisture buildup and condensation from occuring in our home as a result of the warm temperatures inside meeting the cold temperatures outside. Loess Hills Handyman's affiliated handyman team can most certainly complete this weatherstripping task in your home.
Inspect and repair or replace the caulking around windows, doors, and entry points for electrical, cable, phone, and gas. Same idea as the weatherstipping...trying to keep the cold with the cold, and the warm air with the warm air.
Gutters collect rainwater and debris on your roof. If your gutters are clogged/blocked by this debris, this can cause leaks and mold. When that water freezes in your gutters, it expands, which can potentially damage gutters, but creates an even greater concern of water leaking over the gutters with heavy snow melt, or spring rains. This can create excessive water near your foundation, which creates a whole new set of problems. The sooner you address this issue in the fall, the better, as cleaning the gutters becomes more and more difficult as the weather tends towards freezing every day. Loess Hills Handyman's affiliated handymen do gutter cleanings and other outdoor repairs, so contact us today to assist you with this and any other fall indoor or outdoor projects you might have.
