While triple-digit temperatures are still in the forecast, summer will soon be replaced by fall’s cooler weather and stunning vistas, which can be already be felt and seen in some areas. You can also find seasonal favorites in valley stores, bakeries, and cafes.
With autumn officially beginning next Tuesday, September 22, now is the perfect time to get a head start on seasonal maintenance tasks. One of the most practical things you can do is to contact a silicone sealant company about sealing energy-wasting air leaks.
Seal Air Leaks
A significant percentage of the conditioned air can be lost due to air leaks and drafts found around windows and doors. That may lead to high heating and cooling costs. Air leaks can also cause issues with indoor air quality and comfort. Hiring a silicone sealant company to weatherize your home or office is one of the best solutions for preventing air leak-related problems. It can also protect against dust and water penetration.
Clean the Gutters
Fall foliage can build-up in the gutters and cause a water blockage that can damage your property’s roof, siding, or foundation. Scoop out any leaves, needles, and other debris and then rinse the gutters out. While this should be done a minimum of two times per year, once in the fall and again in the spring, you may need to clean the gutters more frequently if a lot of trees surround your property.
Check Outdoor Lighting
The days are getting shorter, creating the need for outdoor lighting. Outdoor lighting helps promote safety, and provides a welcoming vibe. Motion-activated lighting can also help deter trespassers. Routinely check outdoor fixtures for damage or burnt-out light bulbs. Also, check the sensitivity levels on motion sensors. Replace non-working fixtures or light bulbs for increased safety and security.
Protect Exterior Surfaces
The season’s cooler weather is an ideal time to inspect your patio, parking garage, driveways, and walkways. Make a note of any stains or other types of problems so that repairs can be made. Clean these surfaces, as needed, using a pressure washer. Consider having a silicone sealant company apply a waterproof traffic coating that protects from freeze/thaw damage and is resistant to common chemicals.
