As a homeowner in Boynton Beach, or anywhere in Florida for that matter, you have an advantage over people from elsewhere in the country, in that you don’t have to prepare for much of a change in the weather when winter comes. However, there are still some things you need to do as the slight chill starts to enter the air in the Sunshine State. Here, from a professional home management service provider in Boynton Beach, is a list of three of the main tasks that need to be done to get your home fall and winter-ready.

Clean the Gutters

Winter is the season of falling leaves! And, many of them will find their way into your gutters, which will cause major problems when the rainy season sets in. So, make sure you (or someone working on your behalf, such as a professional home management team) get up there and clean those gutters by clearing away all the leaves.

Seal the Doors and Windows

You never know what the colder months will bring here in Florida, so check all your doors and windows to make sure that they provide a thorough seal against cold winds. You may need to add some weather stripping or caulk to make sure your windows are keeping the colder air at bay.

Reinforce Your Fire Protection

When it’s the season for jack-o-lanterns, turkey fryers, and Christmas lights, it’s all very festive. But, there are also plenty of hazards. So, don’t wait for a disaster to strike. Now is the time to check that all your safety measures are in place. Test or install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, as well as fire extinguishers. Also, work out an evacuation plan.

Not only all of these preparations, but also other vital home care services can be done by a professional home management service provider. Contact Gardens Home Management Services to see how we can help.
