As summer winds down, it's a perfect time for a home checkup. GET READY FOR FALL by taking care of these essential tasks:

  1. Check Windows: Look for cracks and leaks. tend to weep holes by cleaning with a paper clip.

  2. Update Entryway: Add slip-proof mats to wipe of shoes and a shoe rack or tray to keep wet shoes on. Add a protective rug that can take a bit of seasonal abuse

  3. Maintain Door Locks: Use powdered-graphite lubricant to prevent sticking doors when the weather gets cold. You can do this on your home locks as well as your car door locks.

  4. Deep-Clean Carpets:  Use or rent a carpet extraction cleaner to thoroughly remove dirt and debris and to rid the flooring of moisture before the wet season begins.
