The end of Summer is nearing, and with all the hot weather slowly coming to a stop, now is a great time to get your home ready for the cooler temperatures that autumn can bring. There are plenty of ideas to get your home ready for autumn weather.
Not only is painting a great way to add value to your home and is a quick way to make an enormous difference to your house, you could potentially protect your home from any rotting or moulding that could occur during the cold weather.
- Here are some other friendly tips you can use to get your home ready for autumn.
Get your paintwork checked out: If you haven’t painted your home in a while, painting can provide a great way to protect your house as the rain and wind can eventually wear down your home. Inspect areas that don’t receive sunlight and are prone to moisture. You will be able to tell if you have mildew or mould problems by grew or black spots appearing on the surface. Remove any mould or mildew by scrubbing the surfaces with bleach and repaint to remove mould and mildew. Keep areas of your home well ventilated to avoid the return of mould.
Seal up gaps: Gaps are sometimes overlooked because in the Summer they provide a nice breeze that’s a life send against the Summer heat. Make sure you do go through your home and seal those gaps up. You’ll be needing it once Winter arrives.
Gutters: Keeping your gutters clean is an important and effective way to shift moisture away from your home. Your drains move countless litres of water per year and keep your house dry through the year. Our recommendation is to get your gutters cleaned atleast every 4 months to remove any material or blockages that will stop your drainage system from being effective and you’ll do your bit to keep your home warmer in the cool months coming ahead.
