The Best Ways to Prepare Your Home For Spring!

Prepare Your Home For Spring

Welcome spring into your home with a much-needed clean.

The milder days of spring are a perfect time to do a thorough spring cleaning and to perform home maintenance. After a long winter, it is a good idea to spend some time on home maintenance tasks to look after your property throughout the year. Be sure to follow these steps to restore your home to its former glory.

Inspect the Roof

Especially after winter storms, it is important to check the condition of the roof – whether it is concrete, brick, or shingles. As this is the first line of defense against any water damage, have the roof inspected before spring showers arrive.

Clean the Gutters

Your home’s gutters may be scattered with twigs, dirt, leaves, and debris from the winter. If the gutters are clogged, this spells a flood disaster for your home. Take the time to clean out the gutters and ensure that the downspouts direct water away from the home’s foundation.

Inspect the HVAC Systems

After a chilly winter is a perfect time to ensure that your heating and cooling home systems are in good, working condition. Hire a professional to inspect the systems for damage and ensure they are in working order.

Spring Clean the Home

Roll up your sleeves and get to work! Clean out the fridge, mop the floors, shine the windows, dust, and vacuum around the house, and do not forget about those tough or hard-to-reach spots. Move kitchen appliances away from the wall to clear up last year’s mess and wipe away the cobwebs from winter.
