Spring Home Maintenance

Spring is a great time to get some of those much needed home maintenance items done! Below are some tips to help you keep your property in excellent condition:

  1. Inspect and clean gutters: Remove debris and leaves from the gutters and downspouts to ensure proper water drainage and prevent water damage to your home’s foundation.
  2. Examine the exterior: Walk around the perimeter of your home and check for cracks or gaps in the siding or foundation. Seal any openings to prevent pests from entering and ensure proper insulation.
  3. Service your HVAC system: Schedule a professional HVAC inspection and maintenance to ensure your air conditioning system is in optimal condition for the upcoming warmer months. Replace air filters regularly.
  4. Clean and inspect windows: Clean the windows inside and out. Check for cracks, damaged seals, or faulty mechanisms. Replace any damaged or worn-out weatherstripping.
  5. Test smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors: Replace batteries in smoke detectors and test them to ensure they are functioning correctly. Also, check carbon monoxide detectors and replace batteries if needed.
  6. Inspect and service your outdoor equipment: Check your lawnmower, trimmers, and other outdoor equipment. Clean or replace air filters, sharpen blades, and ensure they are in good working condition.
  7. Prepare your outdoor space: Clean and inspect your patio or deck. Power wash or stain if necessary. Check outdoor furniture for any repairs or maintenance needs.
  8. Check the irrigation system: Inspect your sprinkler system for any leaks or damaged sprinkler heads. Adjust the settings for the upcoming watering season.
  9. Clean and declutter: Spring is a great time to declutter and clean your home. Get rid of items you no longer need and deep clean your living spaces.
  10. Test outdoor lighting: Check and replace any broken or burnt-out bulbs in your outdoor lighting fixtures. Ensure pathways and entrances are well-lit for safety.

Remember to prioritize safety during any maintenance tasks, and if you’re unsure about any specific repairs or inspections, it’s always best to consult a professional.
