  • Clean gutters to prevent water damage and ensure proper drainage.

Summer: Monitor Outdoor Plumbing

  • Check outdoor hoses, sprinklers, and irrigation systems for leaks.
  • Inspect your sump pump to avoid basement flooding during heavy summer rains.

Autumn: Prepare for Colder Weather

  • Drain and winterize outdoor faucets.
  • Insulate exposed pipes to prevent freezing.

Winter: Prevent Frozen Pipes

  • Keep the home temperature consistent to prevent frozen pipes.
  • Insulate pipes in unheated areas like the garage or crawl spaces.
