Household Jobs You May Need to Tackle This Autumn

Coming toward the end of winter the shorter days come in bringing with them rainy weather and falling leaves. Getting your home ready in light of these changes can make the process of adjusting to the new season simpler requiring less management over the long term. Depending on the nature of your home and how well equipped you are to deal with Autumn, you may find yourself at different stages of the preparation process, read on to find out about some of the jobs you may need to undertake this Autumn.


Check Your Boiler

Autumn brings with it drops in temperature and even potential snow and freezing, every autumn is different, and we may experience neither but making sure your boiler is prepared to deal with lower temperatures if needed is a vital part of the preparation process. If you’ve experienced a warm summer, you may find that your heating system has not been utilised for a longer period of time and a sudden drop in temperature may harm the system, it is best to book a boiler servicing ahead of time to ensure that there is no pipe damage or cold spots in the system.


Outdoor Furniture and Equipment

Setting out chairs, tables for friends and family to visit your garden is one of the best things about summer but with the bipolar weather of Autumn this may no longer be possible and outdoor furniture will need to be stored away ready for the next time the weather is good enough for a garden party. Some may have also found themselves utilising the space in their garden as a workout area with weights, benches and treadmills. Exercising in the garden is a fantastic use of the space but unfortunately, much of the equipment used is fragile and may be subject to heavy weathering, it’s best to relocate this equipment into an indoor area to prevent this.


Fallen Leaves

The first thing many of us associate with Autumn is the falling of leaves and while undoubtedly very beautiful allowing them to build up over a longer space of time can clog up your drains and guttering which when paired with the rainy season can cause permanent damage to your home potentially even resulting in indoor flooding. Disposing of these leaves is simple in small amounts but when allowed to congest parts of your home exterior they can become a burden, dispose of them early and save yourself the hassle in the long term.

Ensuring your home is taken care of during some of the tougher seasons is the role of any good tenant or landlord and by following the above tips and staying vigilant the whole process can become very simple ensuring you have a simple and carefree Autumn.
