Your Home & Winter
Like our northern friends, we Floridians should also prepare for the changes of the season. Here are some suggested items that you may want to look at.
Heating system: clean and check.
Air-conditioning: the condensate drain builds up with dust and mold so now is a great time to simply add a little bleach.
Pests are looking for a place to go. Use a good pesticide and spray it around the exterior of your house, plants and ground cover.
Check the weather-stripping on the doors and windows. The bottom gets a lot of wear and might need to be replaced.
Our yards take a beating here in the south. We have frost some mornings and it can be hot a day later. Treat problem areas with weed and feed and by spring, your yard will be looking good.
Fireplaces are a must check. Gas and wood burning both must be checked for proper venting. For gas, check for any leaks & make sure that there is a proper flame when burning.
