10 Tips for Spring Maintenance

It’s been a long, cold winter for many of us – but SPRING IS HERE ~ this helpful checklist targets the areas of your home that may need some attention:

  • Loose or leaky gutters – make sure downspouts drain away from the foundation of your home and that they are free and clear of debris.
  • Fill in low areas in the year with compacted soil.  Spring rains can cause yard flooding and the pooling water will create a breeding ground for summer insects.
  • Check all the wood trim around your home for damage before the spring rains come.
  • Replace any cracked, buckled or loose shingles on the roof.  Also have a professional roofer check flashing around vents, skylights and chimneys.
  • Clean the chimney flue and have it inspected by a certified chimney sweep.
  • Inspect concrete slabs for signs of cracks or movement.  Power wash and seal the concrete after filling in cracks.
  • Do not store firewood near your home.  It should be stacked 18 inches off the ground and more than 2 feet away from the structure.
  • Check outside faucets for freeze damage and check garden hose for dry rot.
  • Have a qualified HVAC technician service your air conditioning system.  Clean coils operate more effectively and keep system working at peak performance.  Change interior filters on a regular basis.
  • Check your gas- and battery-powered lawn equipment to make sure it’s ready for summer.  Clean lawnmower and sharpen cutting blades.

Before you know it, Summer will be here – ENJOY!
