Home Maintenance Tips For Spring
Spring is a great time of year to give your home a little extra attention to keep everything running smoothly throughout the year. Completing the maintenance tasks below ensures that your home is in good shape and you’re prepared for the warmer weather ahead.
Here is a list of tasks that every homeowner should have on their checklist this spring:
Inspect Your Roof
Inspecting and cleaning your roof should be at the top of your list. Look for any signs of wear or damage, such as cracks, missing shingles, or tears. Make any necessary repairs or contact a professional to get a head start on the season.
Check for Water Damage
Ensuring that your home is free from water damage is extremely important. Inspect your walls and ceilings for water stains, and be sure to check for leaky faucets and pipes as well. Addressing any water damage immediately can save you from expensive repairs down the line!
Clean Your Gutters
Your gutters have likely accumulated debris during the fall and winter, so clear them out for proper water drainage. This can prevent water damage to your foundation and other areas of your home.
Now is the best time to replace filters in your home’s HVAC system. To be sure everything is running as it should, have a technician inspect and perform any necessary maintenance on your HVAC system. You don’t want to be left without air conditioning once the hot weather rolls in!
Test Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Keep everyone in your house safe by ensuring your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors function properly. The start of the spring and fall seasons is a great time to change the batteries.
Check Window and Door Seals
Examine the seals around your windows and doors to ensure they are tightly sealed; otherwise, you will lose energy through drafts and end up with higher bills. Be sure to replace any seals that are worn out or damaged.
