Fall Home Maintenance

If my husband and I hadn’t previously felt the full weight of the responsibility of home ownership, we’re certainly feeling it now. A kitchen sink that wasn’t draining and an appliance that wasn’t working reminded us that we don’t have a landlord to call for repairs.

Fall Home Maintenance | Routine home maintenance requires effort and money today, but it prevents inconvenience and expense tomorrow. Here’s a checklist of fall home maintenance tasks.

These incidents highlighted the importance of performing routine maintenance on our home. Our home is a huge blessing and we’re committed to being faithful stewards of it. Routine maintenance is part of this stewardship.

Though it can be a challenge to complete these tasks because it takes a little effort and money today, it’ll likely save us a lot of inconvenience and expense tomorrow. With this in mind we looked into recommended home maintenance tasks and compiled a checklist of those that should be completed during the fall months. We’ll do the same in the coming seasons so we have a guide for keeping our home in tiptop shape.

  1. Very helpful!
    I would add to check the basement for moisture. You’d want to catch any leaks or seepage early.

    • That’s a great addition!
      We don’t have a basement, so I didn’t include it on the list. If you have one, though, that would definitely be something you want to keep an eye on.

  2. Thank you for the reminders! Going to take advantage of this mild weather this week!

  3. Good lists for inside and outside the home. My dh and I need to catch up on these chores this week. We’ve been so busy this fall that we haven’t made routine maintenance a priority.

    Thanks for sharing your tips at Motivation Monday!
