KIM JORDAN – Autumn attentions at HOME!

Well . . .

Time seems to pass by faster and faster and once again…..

Fall has arrived!  

It’s such a fun time of year with fall carnivals and, I just love trick or treat time and seeing how creative kids are every year with the different costumes.

It’s also a good time of year to go around the house to see what general maintenance needs to be done.  

Drag the ole ladder out and check to see if those gutters need cleaning. Take care and be sure to use that ladder safely, of course.

Do a good thorough walk around the house, and see if any areas need any grout touch up or fresh caulking around windows.

This is also a good time to remove any trees or shrubs that may have not survived through the summer and get them replaced.

Just remember… general maintenance now will help things last a lot longer. Neglecting maintenance issues or putting them off could be VERY costly in the future.
