Prepare for fall with our homeowner tips from Tim & Brett.


Tim & Brett’s Smart Home Tips for fall!

:: October 2015 ::

As we head into fall, see the leaves changing and the weather cooling, it’s time to check in with Tim & Brett on how to keep your home in tip-top shape.

TODAY’S TIP TUESDAY: Is the cooler weather bringing little pests in where it’s warm? Create your own bug repellant with a spray bottle, water, & 10% peppermint oil. It is also a plant repellant so be careful around greenery.

Here are the Tip Tuesday tips from the past month:

  • September 1 – The long weekend is a perfect time to do some early fall cleaning. Dispose of old paint cans and other flammable items in your garage that are no longer needed and plan a donation trip to the closest Idaho Youth Ranch or Good Will.
  • September 8 – Time to start preparing for fall. Here is a simple checklist to help you make sure you’re ready for the changing seasons – 
  • September 15 – Did you know mulching your grass instead of bagging it when you mow will keep your yard luscious and green? See more ideas at Zamzows –
  • September 22 – Here’s a home savvy tip for you – keep stainless steel appliances and faucets clean by scrubbing them with a ½ cut lemon, or pick up stainless steel spray from the store.
  • September 29 – Feeling the need to clean? Try using old (or new) dryer sheets to wipe dust from your baseboards. It will save you $$ on duster refills.
