Preparing Your Home for Fall

According to the calendar, fall has officially arrived.  Whether or not that means much in East Texas is debatable.  We may experience another month or two of warm weather, or get hit with a “cold” front soon.  The one thing we do know here at Integra Insurance Services of Huntington, TX is that is no matter how unpredictable the weather might be, it is always a good idea to be prepared.  Is your home ready for fall?  If not, here are some tips to help you prepare.

Clear Debris from Roofs and Gutters

Roofs and gutters tend to collect leaves, branches, and other debris.  Clear these items out regularly throughout the fall. Debris can build up and clog gutters and drains causing drainage and water issues if left unattended.

Tackle Large Outdoor Projects

Does your garage need cleaning out or flowerbeds cleared?  Yes, Texas can be unpredictable, but it is likely that we will have  pleasant weather ahead.  And while this is a great time to enjoy outdoor activities, it is also a good time to tackle a project that it was too hot to do over the summer.

Fire and Safety Checks

Is your fireplace clean and ready for a fire?  Are your smoke detectors working?  Or should you be concerned about the levels of carbon monoxide from your furnace?  Now is the time to prepare for when it does begin to get cold.

Seasonal preparation is just one of the ways to keep your home in shape throughout the year.  At Integra Insurance Services of Huntington, TX, we believe that preventative measures help to ensure your home is protected.  The right home insurance plan also protects your investment.  Contact us today to learn more about the home insurance plans we offer.
