Have you completed your Summer home maintenance checklist? As the days begin to shorten, now is the time to ensure you have run through your Summer home maintenance checklist to finish off any projects to prepare for Fall.
- Check your children’s backyard play equipment for safety issues. Look for pinch points, loose fasteners, worn materials, and the ground underneath of fall protection and trip hazards.
- Check your wood deck or concrete patio for deterioration. Fasteners, railings and structural connections, boards that need refinishing or sanding, nail or screw heads that need reset.
- Check the nightlights at the top and bottom of all stairways.
- Check the exterior siding.
- Check all window and door locks.
- Check the water hoses on the washing machine, refrigerator, icemaker, and dishwasher for cracks and bubbles.
- Devise and practice an emergency escape plan with your family.
