Winter can be a dreary time of year, and it’s difficult on our homes due to the cold, wind, and snow build-up. Spring maintenance is an important routine that keeps your home beautiful and in good shape, both inside and out.
Winter is hard on home exteriors, so it’s a good idea to do a thorough inspection during the spring thaw. Check your roof, foundation, walls, and windows for damage that needs to be repaired. Windows, window screens, and window sills should be gently cleaned if they’re undamaged. It’s also important to flush your drains and clean out your gutters in preparation for the spring rain.
It’s time for a thorough spring cleaning! Bust out your broom and mop, and give your interior a deep clean. As the weather warms up, it’s a good idea to have a professional come out and inspect your air conditioning system for any problems. It’ll be a relief to have it in full working order as soon as you need it. It’s also important to check your attic and basement, where applicable. Keep an eye out for mold and leaks, make sure there’s no significant damage.
Warmer weather means it’s time to get outside to enjoy the fresh air. Get your lawn back in shape with fertilizer and something to manage the incoming weeds, and check your sprinkler system to make sure it’s still in good working order. Clean off your outdoor furniture so you can enjoy being outside again. Once the ground fully thaws, it’s time to get into your outdoor garden to pull the weeds and give all of your plants a once-over to make sure they’re healthy.
