Here are your Monthly Home Maintenance Tips For September:
General walk-through: Check gutters, downspouts and extensions and foundation landscaping. Plan fall projects.
Check/add salt to water softener. Check smoke and fire alarms.
Check interior windows for dryness and weathering along sills and framing. Clean and apply varnish to natural wood surfaces. Concentrate along sash sills where moisture from condensation collects and combines with sunlight to dry out the wood. Prime and paint any surfaces previously painted that are cracking, exposing bare wood. If combination storm windows, check for proper drainage along sill.
Test automatic garage door opener for safety reverse on contact, if equipped.
