As a Floridian, you understand that the fall season is not accompanied by the same dramatic changes in the climate and environment experienced in other regions. However, there are still some seasonal maintenance tasks that will benefit your home. Evolve Property Inspections offers various inspection services to aid you when you are ready to purchase a new home or ensure your current home stays in top shape. Let’s look at some maintenance tasks for your Florida home to check off your list this fall.
Check Your Roof and Gutters
Even though we don’t see the harsh winters that are destructive to the homes’ exteriors, the rainy season can still take a toll on your roof and gutters. Check your roof for any evidence of damage or leaks, and ensure your gutters are cleared out and able to do their job of diverting water away from your home. Evolve offers roof certification inspections if you need one for your homeowner’s insurance.
Inspect for Invasive Pests
Termites are typically most active from the early spring to late in the fall but are a year-round problem in warmer climates. Florida is among the top nine states most at risk for termites, which means you may experience the destructive evidence of termites in your home at one point or another. Whether you are buying a new home or need peace of mind, we can provide a termite inspection.
Complete Your Pool Maintenance
You likely get year-round enjoyment from your pool, but you still need to take a pause for the proper cleaning and maintenance it needs. While your pool will need weekly maintenance for sanitization, you’ll need to schedule professional pool inspections about twice yearly. An inspection will evaluate your pool’s plumbing, electrical system, filters, lights, and other components.
Examine Your Outdoor Lighting
The days are getting shorter, so you will depend even more on your exterior lighting. Check all your exterior entrances, walkways, and other spaces to ensure they are well-lit in case you need to get outside after dark. Replace any bulbs that need it, and make sure your light fixtures are all properly secured.
