You can prepare the exterior of your home for winter by cleaning leaves and debris from your gutters. If your gutters are clogged snow and ice can built up on your roof resulting in leaks and damage to your home. By removing debris you can keep your gutters free and clear of material that causes clogs.
A snow blower test run can save you time if you make sure it runs before you actually need it. Dust off your snow blower, check it for rodent nests, and turn it on to make sure it starts easily and functions properly.
Remove the outdoor hoses and drain them so they do not crack. Turn off water spigots on the inside if there are shut off valves. Place insulated faucet covers over spigots to prevent freezing.
If you start preparing for winter early it will be easier as it gets colder.
