5 Spring Home Maintenance Tips

Now that you’re finally able to get out of your house without covering yourself in hundreds of layers, it’s time to enjoy the sunshine. So, what do you plan on doing on sunny spring days? Perhaps, some good ol’-fashioned cleaning? If that’s the case, then these 5 spring home maintenance tips will be of great help.

5 Spring Home Maintenance Tips

Don’t Forget Your Lawn

If you’re a homeowner who takes pride in maintaining his most prized asset’s appearance, you probably enjoy taking the lawnmower for a spin. It is a simple way to enhance your property’s curb appeal and improve the backyard (if there’s grass there). Ideally, it’s the best time to cut grass, which prepares your lawn for summer and springtime enjoyment.

Speaking of mowing the lawn, springtime is a great time to take care of old and useful house tools, such as the lawnmower itself. After all, it isn’t really helpful in the cold season, is it?

Doors and Screens

Screens play a vital role in controlling and letting in air, thereby improving ventilation. But doesn’t that give way to bugs and insects as well? Exactly! That’s why it might be time to change or maintain the screens in your home to keep out the bugs.

Moreover, adding doors and window panels that reflect comfy springtime is an added plus point that prepares your home for spring. Replace the storm shield on the windows with normal screens. Clear out the debris and dust from the window panels and sides to ensure that mold doesn’t form.

Look After Your Roof

Considering the harsh storms that can damage your property during the winter season, a spring roof inspection is a must. After all, you’re bound to worry about your roof if a major storm blows out a few shingles. Therefore, pay close attention to any minor or major damages or changes in your home’s roof structure.

Consequently, in case of detection, try seeking professional help to prevent further damage to your home structure and avoid injuries. Check for dirt, twigs, and vegetation in your home’s air vents. In addition, clean the sidings for a cleaner and brighter house exterior.

Clean the Gutters

Gutters are a common nuisance for homeowners. If rain is not heading away from your home and the roof, the structure can face significant damage. Thus, you have to downspout the gutter lines to get rid of the clogs and solid debris (e.g., grains, gravel, etc.).

Check the HVAC and Dryer Vent

Clear out the AC air filters in your house this spring. Remove the twigs, dust, germs, and debris clutters to ensure that the HVAC system doesn’t heat up to cool your entire house. Besides, you would love to see your electric bill go down, wouldn’t you?
