How to Prep your Condo for Fall!


It’s never easy to say goodbye to summer. As the days get shorter and the leaves start to change colour and turn to red and gold, it’s a reminder that winter is just around the corner. But fall can be one of the nicest times of year, and it’s a good time to make some changes, especially around your condo.

The start of fall signifies impending change for a lot of people — school is starting and the new year is just a few months away. In order to be ready for the changes that lie ahead, I thought I’d come up with some tips to help you prepare your condo for the coming season.


You might want to consider bringing in your patio furniture for the coming months. If you are going to keep your furniture outside, give it a good wipe down with warm, soapy water to get rid of the summer build up and think about purchasing some canvas covers to protect it from the elements.

Next you’ll want to deal with your plants. If you’ve been growing a balcony garden or keeping flowers all summer, now is a good time to trim them back, cover them up and find a place to store them inside.

It’s good to remember that with the fluctuating temperature, things made of glass or ceramic can shatter in the cold so you’ll want to be sure that everything breakable is indoors.

Finally, make sure your drain is clean and free of debris and build up, and keep a hard bristled broom to keep the wet leaves or snow from piling up in front of your door.
