Getting your home ready for Fall

Your home may be your castle, but castles come with a lot of work. As the warm weather starts to fade and the days get shorter and the nights’ crisper, it is time to do all the chores required to get your home ready for Fall. At Manteca Insurance & Financial Services in Central Valley, CA, we understand all the challenges of homeownership. We want to make having excellent home insurance as painless as possible. As independent agents, we owe our loyalty to our customers, and we offer more carriers and options than captive agents. 

Get your chimney cleaned.

Fireplaces and wood-burning stoves are both romantic and economical. They are very popular ways to add interest to your home. They can also be very dangerous if your chimney is not clean. A dirty chimney leads to chimney fires, and the resulting damage can be devastating. 

Clean out the gutters

Gutters get clogged with leaves and debris. Water backs up and causes damage to your roof and may leak into your home, causing damage to ceilings and walls. 

Get your furnace cleaned and tuned.

If you live in a cold climate, you count on your furnace to keep you warm, and a tuned and cleaned furnace is more efficient that one that doesn’t work at its best. 

Seal cracks around doors and windows

Heating a home during the winter can be expenses. You don’t want to lose your heat out of cracks around doors and windows. A little caulk goes a long way to saving you some money. 

Prune your bushes and trees

Fall is an excellent time to prune your trees and bushes. Ensuring that trees and bushes don’t suffer from broken branches caused by winter snow and ice helps protect your plants and your house.
