Maintaining your home is not only an important part of protecting the investment in your home, but it’s also the key to making it a cozy and comfortable place to come home to this Fall.
I’m partnering with HomeZada to bring you tips and advice each month to help you keep your home running smoothly. You may remember I wrote previously about HomeZada’s service which allows you to manage your home tasks with ease. I’ve found it to be an invaluable resource to our family as we’re managing our home and planning home improvements.
This month we put together a list of home to dos for the Fall. While you don’t need to check these off in one weekend, these are tasks that should get done before it gets too cold outside.
You can create your own to do list on HomeZada with a Premium Membership ($5.95/month) that allows you to sync your calendar with family members, track your to dos and service providers and so much more. Under each tasks you’ll also find a how to video to help you get everything done.
