Here are a few maintenance tips to keep your building or community at its autumn best.
Fall is the perfect time to spray for bugs and weeds, and to plant annuals in your landscaping beds. Also be sure to check your equipment, including your watering clocks and your irrigation system to make sure they’re in tip-top shape. And don’t forget to remove all of the hoses from hose bibs, and clear away fallen leaves from bushes and drainage areas!
Pool and Spa
Check your motors and pumps and clean replace the filters. It’s also a good time to take a look at the piping to see if you have any leaks or corrosion. Don’t forget to clean all the filter baskets and grease the pump motor and bearings.
Now that the days are growing shorter, it’s a good time to check for bad bulbs and any broken lighting fixtures. You may opt to do a full LED conversion – a win-win for both reducing your energy costs and protecting the environment!
If you’re planning to decorate deciduous trees, be absolutely certain that they’re trimmed back before lighting to reduce fire hazards!
