Every month, we share easy tasks you can do to keep your home in tip-top shape all year long. So, here are 4 simple tasks you can take on in November!
1. Maintain Large Appliances: Appliances are a big long-term investment! That's why it's important to take good care of them all year long. Your refrigerator is a great place to start. Accumulating dust can make your fridge's cooling system less efficient. To prevent trouble, regularly pull the fridge away from the wall and clean the condenser coils with a vacuum. It's also a good idea to dust and clean the front lower grille. This five minute task can add years of service!
2. Clean the Oven & Stove Drip Pans: Next, move on to your stove. Let's get this clean before the holiday cooking marathon begins! The good news is that many ovens have a self cleaning feature that will do this work for you but the problem is that it takes awhile and usually smells pretty bad. Save this task for a nice day and open up the window to keep it well ventilated. Check your stove's manual for instructions and take a few minutes to clean the burners, too.
3. Trim Overhanging Tree Limbs: The cold weather has started to arrive. Have you noticed any large branches hanging over onto your roof? Get them trimmed as soon as possible. A good ice storm can cause branches to break onto your roof leading to more damage and insurance claims.
4. Save on Home Insurance: Homeowners Insurance is an important part of protecting your home and belongings. To make sure you have the best coverage, call Thomas E. Sears Insurance Agency today at (978) 562-3464!
