The birds are chirping, the bees are buzzing, and spring is in the air. The arrival of spring means it’s time to prepare your home for the change of seasons. Check out the maintenance checklist below to get your home ready for spring.
Remove the winter debris from your rain gutters. Install gutter guards to keep them clear for the rainy season ahead.
Winter debris can also accumulate on your A/C condenser. Remove any sticks or leaves collected on the outside to ensure your system runs smoothly. If necessary, call in a professional to do the cleaning.
Clean the exterior of your home. Soapy water and a scrubbing brush should do the trick. If your home has two or more stories, it’s best to hire a contractor to do the dirty work.
Show your deck some love by cleaning and removing any gunk from between the boards. There are also a variety of deck cleaning products available to liven up any stained or faded boards.
Take a close look at the caulking around your windows and reseal any cracks that occurred over winter.
Inspect your roof for loose shingles or tiles and make repairs right away.
