All good things must come to an end, including summer. And although we’ve had a great run of warm weather here in Eastern LI the last few weeks, it is still time to shut down our summer vacation homes.
There are two important things to protect against when closing down a summer home in the East End and North Fork: weather and “visitors,” especially mice and insects. Freezing temperatures can damage unprotected pipes, lightning can fry expensive electronics and appliances, and pests can get into your mattresses and bedding.
To guard against these problems, here’s a checklist of things to do to shut down your Long Island summer vacation home.
