Home Maintenance Tips for the Spring

Home Maintenance Tips for the Spring

Spring is a wonderful season that gives you the great opportunity to do some home maintenance for the year. 

Spring is the time when flowers blossom and everything is reborn. The weather gets warmer and the days grow longer and there’s a positive energy in the air. It is the perfect time to reorganize and refresh your home for the year. While spring cleaning is definitely important, you have to make sure that your home is ready to deal with another year of wear and tear. Here are a few tips on how you can perform home maintenance during the spring season.

Roof, Windows, Siding

  • Climb up into the attic and check for any signs of leakage, like moisture or discoloration.
  • Inspect your roof for damage including mold, cracked, curling, or missing shingles, and have a professional replace your roof if necessary.
  • Look for peeling paint on the exterior of your house. Paint is more than just looking nice, it protects your home from the elements.

Interior

  • Inspect each room for any signs of stagnant water and take immediate action if found.
  • Make sure that all your HVAC systems (like your fridge, air conditioner, boiler, washer and dryer, and more) are running smoothly and hire a professional to fix any discrepancies.
  • Clean exhaust fan outlets and screens.

Yard and Exterior

  • Clean the gutters and downspouts to allow the flow of water down and away from your foundation.
  • Examine your deck or balconies for any signs of wood rot.
  • Check for any signs of rodents, termites, and other critters that can damage your yard.
