Islamic finance and fall maintenance go together

 It goes without saying, finding the right Islamic mortgages that avoid Riba will help you through the process of being able to afford the right home and stay compliant with Sharia Law. At the same time, you can’t afford to ignore seasonal home maintenance which is an important part of home ownership. With the arrival of fall, there are some practical maintenance tips you should follow to ensure your home is ready for the winter months ahead.

Now is the time to store your lawnmower, grass trimmer and other outdoor lawn tools for the year. Many people prefer to drain off mower fluid before storing to prevent stale gas sitting in the tank and potentially clogging fuel lines in the spring. Take advantage of the cooler weather to get out the ladder to examine roof gutters and downspouts to remove any debris and to check for and replace damaged or loose pieces.

Fall is also a good time to replace HVAC filters and remove air conditioning units from windows or attach a waterproof cover to prevent damage. Caulk around windows and doors to make sure seals are secure and to prevent air from escaping. Replace any leaky faucets in the kitchen, bathroom or laundry room to avoid having to deal with the possibility of a broken pipe in the middle of winter.

To ensure the safety of your family throughout the year, remember to check smoke alarms on a monthly basis and replace batteries at least once a year. The right Islamic finance product and practical seasonal maintenance will help to protect the investment in your home.
