Tips on Fall Home Maintenance Projects
Top 10 projects you can do in 30 minutes or less
Fall home maintenance projects are all about protecting your
home and preserving safety and comfort indoors, which you get
your home ready for winter. Grab a few tools and a half an hour
now to tackle one of the following chores, and you will thank
yourself warmly a few months down the line.
Find your valves:
Water leak emergencies are all too common over the cold weather
month. Use half an hour now to locate and label every important
water valve in your home, including the main water valve, water
heater valve, hose valves and icemaker valves. Familiarize other
family members with their locations and operation in case you’re
away when disaster strikes. If you are heading out of town for a
few days, get in the habit of turning off your main water valve
on the way out the door, to limit any pipe breaks to the water
in the pipe, as opposed to the water in the local reservoir!
Drain the water heater:
Your family will be depending on an efficient, consistent hot
water supply in the coming Fall months, so prepare your hot
water heater for duty. Sediment build up on a water heater’s
bottom can interfere with performance. Maintenance every six
months by using the tank’s drain valve to carefully discharge a
few gallons of the hot water inside
Lubricate locks and hinges:
Creaky hinges and sticking locks can spook you at exactly the
wrong moment, so make the rounds with a can of WD-40. It’ll
clean and lubricate metal mechanisms in one shot.
Clean and reverse ceiling fans:
Now that they’re done spinning out cool comfort, resetting fans
for the winter routine is an important fall maintenance project.
Give fan blades a through dusting, and then switch them to a
clockwise spin in order to push warm air downward from the
Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors:
This biannual maintenance is especially important before you
turn on your heating system. Vacuum detectors to remove excess
dust, replace batteries, and get in the habit of using the
devices’ test buttons to check their function once a month.
Clean the humidifier:
Indoor heat makes for a dry environment, and your home’s
humidifier needs to be ready to balance things out. Over time,
humidifiers can get clogged and stop working, or even worse,
send bacteria and mold throughout the house. So go through the
cleaning routine as recommended by your unit’s manufacturer.
Soaking the evaporator pad in a solution of white vinegar and
water often works well to dissolve mineral salts left behind as
water evaporates; just be sure to rinse well after the soak so
your home doesn’t end up smelling like a big salad.
Check for roof leaks:
Winter rains are comforting until they start landing inside your
home, so check and protect the most likely leak points in your
roof. After the first big Fall rain storm, grab a flashlight and
inspect areas where protrusions such as chimneys and plumbing
vent pipes meet the roof. Then pick up your binoculars and
inspect the same spots from outside, also scanning for missing
shingles and loose flashing that require replacement.
Quiet kitchen cabinets:
Before the Fall is over, your kitchen will soon be bustling with
holiday dinners, baking projects, and house guests, so don’t let
little annoyances get in the way of big plans. Clean and
lubricate drawers and hinges on kitchen cabinets, and replace
any catches that no longer catch.
Steady all handrails:
Negotiating a snowy step or a busy indoor staircase is tricky
enough without wondering if the handrail will hold steady. Make
sure all inside and outside handrails are secure, and repair
loose railings, posts and spindles. Indoors, loose wood spindles
can be repaired by dipping a wooden toothpick in glue and
wedging it in where the spindle goes into the handrail. Once the
glue is dry, break off the excess toothpick or trim it away with
a utility knife.
the chimney crown:
You can avoid major repair costs with a little maintenance of
your masonry chimney’s crown – that cement area between the
outside edge of the brick and the terra-cotta clay chimney
liner. Cracks in the crown allow water to leak into the chimney,
where it can cause bricks to freeze and break. An annual dose of
caulking will prevent such an expensive disaster and help
maintain the chimney’s structural integrity.
Fall home maintenance projects are important to make sure your
home is ready for winter and the holiday events that are just
around the corner. Get them done with these quick tips over the
next few weekends and you’ll be ready to hibernate.
Halloween Party Safety
If you don’t like to send your kids out for trick or treating a
good substitute is a home Halloween party. Setting up a
Halloween party for your kids can be just as fun for the adults
as it is for the kids. This is also a great adult holiday and
throwing a Halloween party for adults can be very fun! You can
hold a costume contest, have a theme party, the possibilities
are endless and work for both kids and adult parties!
If you run short on ideas, there are many Halloween party idea
books available at your local book or craft store. Also,
remember that the internet is a well spring of information and
you’ll find sites that have party ideas, games, food, music and
Here are a few Halloween party ideas to get you started:
For a kids party, plan some good games to keep your child’s
Halloween party running smoothly. Kids can have short attention
spans so you want to keep the party exciting and flowing
For an adult Halloween party, keep it jumping with some rockin’
Halloween music! Kids might like sound effects better and you
can find all kinds of Halloween music and sound effects CDs for
kids and adults at this time of year.
If you are serving food or treats at the party, make your table
setting a spooky one using fake spider web, mini pumpkins, and
other Halloween items. Adults like to have as much fun during
Halloween as the kids do and adult Halloween parties tend to be
much wilder than kids parties with dancing, alcohol and a full
lay out of food. Make sure that your serving area looks like
When deciding on a menu, check and see if anyone attending the
party has food allergies that might be a problem. Common food
allergies to dairy products, peanuts and shell fish can rally
put a damper on the festivities. Planning ahead for problems can
make all the difference for your Halloween party!
Using common sense can make a party a great one and avoid
anything that may ruin it. For adult parties, keep an eye on the
drinking and don’t let it get out of hand. Take the keys away
from anyone that may be driving. Have one person stay sober and
offer to drive those people home who may be too intoxicated to
Having a Halloween party, either one for adult or for children,
is definitely great fun! In order to have things run smoothly
and with no accidents, here are some tips that can be used to
make your party more enjoyable. With a little planning and time
to prepare, you have thrown a fun, safe Halloween party!
If using dry ice in a punch bowl, make sure that you use a large
punch bowl and a smaller one that fits inside. The smaller one
is for the punch, the larger one is to put the dry ice and hot
water in. Keep them separate, dry ice is not for ingestion and
can cause serious damage to internal organs if swallowed.
If you are holding your party in your house, make sure that you
move any breakable pieces of furniture or knick-knacks to
another room where they can’t get broken. A forgotten heirloom
vase that hits the floor could ruin the night for you.
To keep things moving for either an adult party or child’s
party, make sure that you have some games, like scavenger hunt
or a murder mystery planned in advance.
If you are planning a party for your kids and their friends, see
if you can get some of the other parents to help out with
planning, baking and what ever else needs to be done. Many of
them will be willing to help out to make it successful party for
all their kids to attend.
Any treats or party food that can be made in advance is always a
big help! If you have other parents helping out, make sure that
everyone gets assigned a food item to bring, that will take a
load off the main hostess. Make sure that someone is bringing
drinks, food, snacks, treats or whatever you are serving.
Having a pumpkin carving party on the night before Halloween can
be a great way to start off the festivities. Either adults,
kids, or both, have a wonderful time and get all your pumpkins
carved before the big night!
Set up a table with treats, punch and goodies in your front yard
if you live in a small neighborhood. Invite the children and
their parents to stop by for refreshments, you’ll start a small
party in your front yard! Just make sure you set up a nice yard
If you live in a friendly neighborhood, discuss having a
Halloween block party with the neighbors. Set it up outside, in
the street and yards and get everyone involved. Have carnival
type games, a few yard haunts, food, music and dancing.
