September Home-Maintenance Checklist

 

 

 

Ever wake up in early September and notice that the air smells different? School begins, days get shorter, and a sense of responsibility begins to creep up on most of us. We've always wondered why "fall cleaning" isn't as popular as "spring cleaning." The air on brisk September mornings inspires us to dutifully button up the home in preparation for cooler days and longer nights.

 

Add weather-stripping to doors and windows

 

Weather-stripping can be plastic, foam, felt or metal; its job is to seal small gaps, keeping moisture and cold air outside where they belong.  Look around your doors and windows:  Is the weather=stripping torn or missing?  This can become expensive if ignored.  On doors, make sure the bottom seal is working properly - there are many sweeps, gaskets and thresholds designed to seal this gap.  Doors generally need weather-stripping in their jambs as well.  Adhesive-backed foam pads are easy to install for this purpose.  Newer energy-efficient windows generally don't require added weather-stripping , but if your windows are older, weather-stripping can keep drafts at bay and energy costs down.

 

 

Check storm windows

 

If you have storm windows that are cracked or dirty, repair and clean them now - prior to autumn installation.

 

 

Insulation speculation

 

This is a good time to check the condition of insulation and see if you need more, especially if you live in an older home.  You can purchase un-backed or loose-fill insulation if you are just beefing up what is already there.  If you are adding batted insulation to a spot that has none, remember that the foil backed side is the vapor barrier, and it must face the heated area.  For example, if you are laying fiberglass insulation in an unfinished attic floor to keep heat in the living room below, you should see pink when you're done - not foil!  If your walls lack insulation, consider having a professional install blown-in insulation foam.  The energy savings will probably offset the cost of the procedure in a couple of years.

 

 

Check gutters

 

Do a quick visual check to make sure gutters are clear - they'll be performing double duty soon with rainstorms and falling leaves.

 

 

Keep Mice Out

 

September inspires nesting in mice as well as humans.  Mice are looking for a winter home now, and that newly insulated attic would be just the spot.  Mice can squeeze through 1/4 inch openings; rats need 1/2 inch.  Make sure all exterior vents are screened, and that there are no gaps underneath garage doors.  If you are careless about leaving doors and windows open this time of year, you'll be setting mouse traps later.  Pet doors are another favorite access point for rodents.

 

 

Caulk exterior

 

Think of caulk as weather-stripping in a tube.  Any gap on the outside of your home can be a candidate for caulking.  Look at transition spots: corners, windows, door areas where masonry joins siding, or places where vents and other objects protrude from walls.  Carefully read manufacturer's directions to make sure the caulk you buy will work where you plan on using it, and don't forget to purchase a caulking guy.  Early fall is a good time for this task because caulk becomes difficult to apply when the temperature falls.

 

 

Got wood?

 

If you have a wood stove, it's not too early to lay in a supply of firewood.  Though most of us buy whatever's local, bear in mind that soft woods like fir and cedar burn faster and create hazardous creosote in the chimney, thus requiring more system maintenance and more wood.  hard woods like oak, hickory and maple are slow, hot, clean burners.  Wood piles attract insect and animal pests, so stack wood away from the house.  Wood dries best when it's protected from rain and has air circulating around it, so under a roof of a wall-less carport would be an ideal wood storage spot.

 

 

Clean dryer vent

 

This is another one of those tasks that should be on your to-do list every six months.  Scoot your clothes dryer away from the wall, unplug it, and vacuum behind it.  (if it's a gas dryer, turn off gas supply to the dryer at the appliance shutoff valve.)  Unhook the tube that leads to the vent and clear as much lint from the tube as you can.  Grab a shop vacuum, go outside, and tackle the outside dryer vent as well.

 

 

Inspect your roof and chimney

 

If your roof isn't too steep, and isn't covered with slate or tile, you may be able to carefully walk on it on a dry day.  Look for broken or missing shingles, missing or damaged flashing and seals around vent pipes and chimneys, and damage to boards along the eaves.  Also peer down your chimney with a flashlight to make sure no animals have set up house in it.  If you can't get on your roof, perform this inspection with a ladder around the perimeter.  Pay close attention to valleys and flashings - many leaks originate in these spots.  Some patches and roofing cement now can prevent thousands of dollars of water damage later in the winter.
