Home Maintenance Checklist in Fall 秋季房屋维护清单

1. Clean gutters and downspouts.

清理屋檐水槽及落水管


Once most of the leaves have fallen, clean out gutters and downspouts (hire a helper if you are not comfortable on a ladder). Clogged gutters during rainstorms can cause water to pool and damage your roof or siding.


待秋季大部分树叶都落下来时,是清理屋檐排水沟和落水管的好时候。暴雨时堵塞的排水沟会导致积水,积水渗入会损坏屋顶或外墙板,甚至内部结构。


2. Make exterior repairs.

检视/整修房屋外部


Take a walk around your property, looking for signs of damage to the roof, siding and foundation. If you spot anything that needs repair, schedule it before winter weather hits.


在你的房子周围走走,看看屋顶、外墙板和地基是否有损坏的迹象。如果你发现任何需要修理的地方,在冬天来临之前安排好。


3. Seal gaps where critters could enter.

封住动物可以进入的缝隙


Mice need only a tiny gap to be able to sneak into your house and raid your pantry — and with colder weather coming, all of the little critters out there will be looking for warm places to make a home. Fill small holes and cover any larger gaps securely with heavy-duty hardware cloth to keep the wildlife outdoors.


老鼠只需要一个小小的缝隙就能溜进你的房子,进入你的食品储藏室——随着寒冷天气的到来,所有的小动物都会寻找温暖的地方安家。封堵外墙的小洞和裂缝,较大一些的洞用坚固的硬板封盖上,确保野生动物无法进入室内。


4. Check walkways, railings, stairs and the driveway for winter safety.

检查人行道、栏杆、楼梯和车道,确保冬季安全。


When the landscape is covered in ice and snow, just walking from the driveway to the front door can be quite a challenge.

Make navigating around your home safer by checking that all stairs are in good shape and have sturdy railings, and that the driveway is in good repair to make for easier shoveling


当遭遇大雪时,有时仅仅从车道走到前门就是一个相当大的挑战。 因此,在冬季来临之前,应该全面检查一下,楼梯是否都完好无损,栏杆是否坚固,车道是否需要修补,如有损坏,早作整修,确保冬季出行安全和便于铲雪。


5. Add weatherstripping.

增加密封条


Weatherstripping applied around the frames of windows and doors helps boost winter warmth and cut energy costs. Add door sweeps to the base of drafty doors to keep heat in and cold air out.


在门、窗框架上增加密封条,有助于在冬季保持室内温度,降低能源消耗成本。在门的底部增加挡风条(door sweeps),可以防止室内热量散发到室外和防止冷空气进入。


6. Check safety devices.

检查安全设备


Test smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors; replace batteries as needed.

Check the expiration date on your fire extinguisher and replace if needed.


测试烟雾探测器和一氧化碳探测器是否能正常工作(按下测试按钮,看是否能正常报警),如有必要,更换新的电池或安装新的探测器。 检查灭火器上的过期日期,如有需要更换新的灭火器。


7. Clean dryer vents.

清洁干衣机出风口


Lint buildup in dryer vents can make your dryer work less efficiently and even cause a fire — cool, dry fall weather increases static electricity, which can ignite lint that has built up, so now is a key time to get that lint out. You can hire a duct cleaning specialist to clean the vents for you, or clean the vent yourself.


干衣机排气孔里堆积的棉絮会降低干衣机的工作效率,甚至会引起火灾——凉爽干燥的秋季天气会增加静电,静电会点燃已经堆积的棉絮,所以现在是清理棉絮的好时候。您可以聘请管道清洁专家为您清洗通风口,或自己清洗通风口。


8. Check Your Furnace

检修供暖设备


Schedule an appointment with a heating and cooling pro to get your heating system checked and tuned up for the coming heating season.

Change your furnace filters, too. This is a job you should do every two months anyway, but if you haven’t, now’s the time. If your HVAC includes a built-in humidifier, make sure the contractor replaces that filter.


为即将到来的供暖季节做好准备,可以安排预约一个专业人士来检查和维护你的供暖系统。 取暖炉的滤网通常需要定期清洁或更换,这是一项日常维护工作(通常每两/三个月做一次),但如果你还没有清洁或更换,现在是时候了。如果你的暖通空调装有内置加湿器,也要确保清洁或更换。
