Spring Home Maintenance
Spring has sprung! Now is the perfect time to get some important home maintenance tasks done before the hot days of summer arrive. Don’t delay in taking care of these tasks. A little spring maintenance now can help prevent major repairs down the road.
Inspect Your Roof
Examine your roof for any signs of cracking or loose shingles. Your roof is your home’s defense against bad weather so you want to be sure it is in it’s the best condition. If there is any damage then you will need to repair it. Don’t wait, do it while the weather is nice. If your roof has areas that are too high to inspect, call a professional roofer to come out and examine it.
Service Your HVAC
You don’t want to be having AC issues during the dead heat of the summer. One of the best ways to prevent this is to service your air conditioning system regularly and especially right before summer. This small investment will be worth avoiding a large repair cost in the case that your system malfunctions. Also, don’t forget to change your air filters regularly. This is one of the most simple solutions to improving air flow to your home.
Dirty gutters lead to clogged drains and these can cause water damage. Clear all debris from gutters and ensure that your downspouts are directed away from your home.
Spruce Up Your Yard
Now is the best time to give your yard a little TLC. Pulling weeds before they get out of control is the best way to keep your lawn looking it’s best all year. Spread new mulch or pine straw and plant some colorful flowers. Also if you’re planting a garden, spring is the time to get started.
