Although we are still enjoying the crisp fall air, the cold weather will be here before we know it. This month, it will be important to take preemptive measures around your home before harsh weather arrives to keep your family and visitors safe. Here are our monthly maintenance tips for November.
- Replace broken shovels, service your snow blower, and stock up on salt. Getting the supplies you need now will save you from the long lines in store before the first snowfall. It also feels good to be prepared, doesn’t it?
- Check and maintain exterior hand railings and stairs, ensuring they are safe and secure. This will prevent any unwanted accidents for you and your loved ones.
