√ Check Carbon Monoxide Detectors and Smoke Alarms
Test alarms and ensure they are working properly, put in fresh batteries. Also check fire extinguishers and First Aid kits.
√ Prevent Freezing Pipes
If you live in an area with freezing weather take steps to ensure faucets and irrigation systems do not freeze up. Winterize your irrigation system, shut-off exterior pipes and insulate pipes.
√ Landscape and Yard-work
Trim landscaping. Cut back bushes, shrubs, and flowers as recommended for your climate zone. Prune your trees and shrubs after the leaves turn to encourage healthy growth. Trim any tree limbs that are close to power lines or the roof of your house. Fertilize your lawn.
√ Review your Home Insurance
Your insurance needs can change over time, and it is good to review policies to ensure your coverage still makes sense.
