Spring Home Maintenance Checklist

Is your home spring-ready? Now that the weather is warming up, it’s that time of year when you should get outside and give your home the cleanup and recovery it needs from a long winter. You also want to get your landscape ready for a fun, warm temperature season to enjoy outdoor living. 

Make sure to cross these tasks off your checklist this spring:

Clean Your Gutters

Every spring, it’s crucial you clean out your gutters. They serve an essential function in keeping your home safe from rain, so you want to be confident they are ready for their jobs, especially as April showers start to intensify. It’s likely the fall and winter storms and elements have knocked debris, leaves, and dirt that clog up the spouts and can lead to costly damage if they go uncleaned.  

Inspect Your Homes Exterior

As previously mentioned, the fall and winter elements can be harsh and leave your home with severe damage. Give your home a thorough inspection to ensure there are no problems. Start with your roof, looking for missing or damaged shingles or tiles, and work your way down. Check for damaged siding, holes in doors or windows, and other potential concerns, and get them fixed as soon as possible.

Inspect Driveways And Paths

Now that you’ve looked up at your house for any problems, it’s time to look down at your landscape. Inspect your driveway for any cracks or missing areas and have those fixed as soon as you can. As well, take a look at all your walking paths all-around your home. Again, be sure to have any cracks or issues fixed before they worsen and become more costly.  

Prevent Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are a real annoyance and can ruin any fun time outdoors. As well, they can be a concern for your health since they carry and transfer potentially dangerous diseases. The best way to rid your property of mosquitoes is to be proactive. The best thing you can do is remove any standing water where mosquitoes do their breeding. If you have an area of your property, such as birdbaths, where you want water to sit, be sure to change it every few days at least.

Check Your Sprinklers and Irrigation System

Ensuring your sprinklers and irrigation system is functioning correctly can save you water and keep your plants. Be sure to run the system through all the zones, walk your property, and listen for any leaks. Also, check for any damaged or broken heads and hoses, and adjust your sprinklers, so they don’t spray off your property, therefore wasting water.

Prepare For Lawn Maintenance

Take a look at your lawn mower and lawn care tools, and be sure they are ready to go for the season. If you need to buy anything new or have maintenance done, don’t wait till the last minute.
