After a long winter, your home may need some attention to keep it in top shape for the warmer months ahead. But with spring comes a chance for you to do some spring cleaning and home maintenance.
Check Your Roof
Inspect your roof for any damage or wear and tear. Look for loose or missing shingles, cracks, or leaks. Repair any issues before they become larger problems.
Clean Gutters and Downspouts
Gutters and downspouts can become clogged with leaves and debris, leading to water damage and leaks. Clean them out thoroughly to prevent any issues.
Inspect Your HVAC System
Your HVAC system has likely been working hard to keep your home warm during the winter months. Now is the time to change the air filters and have a professional inspect and service the system.
Test Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Ensure that your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working correctly. Replace batteries as needed, and replace any units that are not working correctly.
Clean Windows and Screens
Spring is the perfect time to get your lawn and gardens in shape. Remove any dead plants or debris, and fertilize and seed your lawn as needed.
Prepare Your Lawn and Gardens
Regularly inspect your plumbing system for leaks and damage. Fix any issues promptly to prevent water damage and mold growth.
Spring is an excellent time to tackle your home maintenance checklist. By inspecting your roof, cleaning gutters and downspouts, inspecting your HVAC system, testing your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, cleaning windows and screens, checking your outdoor areas, and preparing your lawn and gardens, you can keep your home in top shape for the warmer months ahead.
