How to Get Your Medina, Strongsville, Brunswick Home Ready for Fall

It’s finally October and before you know it, we’ll be settled into the cold weather months. Just as you might be preparing for the next season, planning activities and wardrobe changes, your home in Brunswick, Strongsville, Medina needs attention too!

It’s no secret that Medina and Cuyahoga County homeowners rarely want to take on major home projects during the winter, so it’s time to line everything up now while the weather is still favorable. Preparing your Cleveland area home this October should include the following tasks:

  • Raking leaves
    It’s the quintessential fall activity and it helps keep your Hinckley, Valley City, Columbia Station and North Royalton homes looking their best. Choose a rake that feels good to you, not one that’s too lightweight. Also consider chopping some of your gathered leaves to use as mulch in a flower bed or in a compost pile.
  • Put up storm doors and windows
    If you use these in your Ohio home, now is the time to install them. Whether we like it or not, summer is behind us and you’ll want to keep that cold weather out as fall moves forward.
  • Decorate outdoor spaces
    Fall is a great time to decorate for the season and help your home become the envy of the neighborhood. Fall pumpkins, gourds and mums all last the whole season long and require little maintenance.
  • Store hoses for the winter and shut off outside faucets
    Be sure to disconnect, drain and roll your garden hoses before storing them for the winter. It’s also important to shut off the water to your exterior faucets to prevent pipes from freezing.
  • Clean gutters and downspouts
    Plan to do this task after most of the leaves have fallen and while you’re at it, check your gutters and downspouts for cracks and loose parts. If necessary, schedule repairs before winter.
