Both the inside and outside of your home could use a good once-over to make it look its best and keep it well-maintained. And that’s why “spring cleaning” and other seasonal prep work should be at the top of your to-do list for the weeks ahead
You want to fully enjoy your home and yard once some gorgeous days come our way, so take the time to schedule some must-do tasks earlier in the season so you can cross them off your list.
Remember that the time you spend on regular maintenance will help preserve the value of your home and will help prevent everyday “wear and tear” from turning into costly damage.
The warmer weather can make it a perfect time for some DIY projects. However, seek out an expert for more difficult clean-up or repair needs.
Here is a handy list of springtime tasks – some for early spring and some later on in the season — that every homeowner should know about:
Keeping It Cool
The heat will be here before you know it! Get your AC up and running properly so you can keep your home cool.
Time to Sparkle and Shine
Let the sunshine in and clean your home from top to bottom. Tackle a few of these tasks each cleaning period so you don’t overwhelm yourself. Remember to always follow your manufacturer’s cleaning instructions for any items.
Get Ready for April Showers
The rainy season is upon us, so make sure your home and yard are ready for it!
The Great Outdoors
Give your yard and exterior of your home a good examination to see how everything looks and for any winter damage.
Let me know if you have any questions about maintaining your home. Reach out to me if I can recommend a contractor who can help you with any of these tasks. I’d love to help you get these items done so you can avoid costly damage or long-lasting problems down the line.
