Here are three fall home maintenance tips to think about doing soon:
1. Make exterior repairs. Take a walk around your property, looking for signs of damage to the roof, siding, and foundation. If there’s anything that needs repair, schedule it before winter weather hits.
2. Clean gutters and downspouts regularly. Too often I’ve seen where clogged gutters have caused water to pool and cause damage to the roof or siding.
3. Clean dryer vents. Cooler weather can increase static electricity which can ignite lint that has built up in your dryer vents....
Anyone else feeling like the air we’re all breathing in OR right now is effecting you physically and emotionally this morning? It’s rough, and yet I’m so so thankful to be safe. We’ve been praying for all the people affected - friends, family, firefighters, first responders - our hearts are with you all.
Something simple you can do to help clean and purify the air and help combat the campfire smell inside your home is to start a simmer pot. Herbs, citrus, and spices gently simmered in a pot on the stove are an all-natural way to clean and freshen our air. 💚 Just be careful to not let the pot simmer dry. Set a timer on your phone to remind you to add water to to the pot regularly.
