Safe + Sound: Fall Home Maintenance Checklist

Prevent potential household disasters by staying on top of these important, yet often overlooked tasks.


The best way to protect your home, likely your biggest investment, is through preventative maintenance. What may be only a small problem now could develop into a disaster down the road. And the time and cost of preventative care is only a fraction of what you might have to spend if you neglect it. Although you should call a specialist for certain jobs (heating systems should be checked annually by an expert), here’s a list of jobs you can do yourself.
