Spring cleaning time is here! The warm weather and fresh flowers bring an urge to refresh everything in your home. So now is the perfect time to get ahead on those home maintenance projects that couldn’t get done in the winter. Here are some spring home maintenance suggestions to get you through the next couple of months.
Clean Your Gutters
Winter storms bring a lot of gunk and debris that end up in your gutters. Any leaves leftover from the fall that are still caught in your gutters could clog in your entire system. Clogged gutters cause damage to any wood trim and can create rot or weak areas of your home where critters could get in.
Test Your Sprinkler System
If you have sprinklers or an irrigation system, Spring is the perfect time to test it. Make sure your sprinklers haven’t sustained any damage over the cold months. Check to see if your sprinklers are pointing in the right direction and heads are working properly.
Check for Cracks on Your Driveway
Cold temps, snow, and ice can all cause cracks and other damage to your driveway, walkways, and sidewalks. Driveway repair companies almost always offer specials in the Spring, so consider hiring a professional.
Check Window and Door Seals
The winter can wreak havoc on the seals around your windows and doors. The lack of a proper seal can result in much higher energy bills by your AC working extra hard. Water could also leak through and cause damage to your windows, doors, and walls.
Spring is the perfect time to check off those home maintenance projects, so your house is ready for spring and summer. While you are at it, give us a call to make sure your homeowner’s insurance policy is up to date.
