Prepping Your Home For Winter

The temperatures are dropping, the leaves are beginning to change, and we’re switching out our shirts for sweaters. Fall is also a great time to do some home improvement projects and prepare your house for the winter.

With so many holidays and weather events to prep for, we have gotten together a list of the most important projects to focus on.

Here is your fall home maintenance checklist:

  1. Care for trees and shrubsFall Leaves Stuck In Gutter
  2. Rake leaves
  3. Clean gutters and downspouts
  4. Make exterior repairs
  5. Seal gaps where critters could enter
  6. Check walkways, railings, stairs and the driveway for winter safety
  7. Stock up on winter supplies (snow shovels, ice scrapers, ice melt, etc.)
  8. Shut off exterior faucets
  9. Add weatherstripping
  10. Check safety devices
  11. Remove window A/C units
  12. Clean dryer vents
  13. Deep-clean the kitchen
  14. Conduct energy audit
  15. Schedule a chimney cleaning and heating system maintenance

When cleaning gutters, clogged gutters, holes or gaps, rusty spots, detached gutters or downspouts, missing downspouts and new screens/strainers all need to be handled differently. This can be overwhelming but you canĀ care for each without the help of an expensive professional.

With services from yard clean out to dumpster rental, we can help with many of your winter preparations. Our yard debris removal includes yard clean outs, disaster preparation/debris removal, yard debris and leaf removal, and construction debris removal. We have no minimum pickup fee and our pricing is based on how full the truck is. We service homes and businesses across Alpharetta, Canton, Kennesaw, Marietta, Roswell and Woodstock.

We are also committed to helping the environment, recycling over 75% of the materials we remove as well as donate usable items to the needy.

When preparing for the winter months ahead, keep Mr. Junk in mind for all of your removal needs.
