Wow! It feels like it took forever for spring to arrive. But now that it has officially sprung, it is time to start tackling those spring to do lists!
Taking care of your home is extremely important. From gutters to air conditioning units and everything in between, this time of year is perfect to take inventory on repairs and upgrades.
Here is a spring home maintenance list to get you started:
- Roof Inspection: Winter can wreak havoc on your home’s roof. Ice and snow build up can cause problems. Take some time this spring to do a visual inspection of your roof. Look for missing and damaged shingles or anything else that doesn’t look right.
- Clean Gutters and Downspouts: Gutters and downspouts collect leaves, sticks and other debris during the winter months. This build up can create problems, especially when rain water has nowhere to go. Make sure your gutters and downspouts are running free.
- Paint and Seal: Spring is the perfect time to repaint exterior homes, decks and fences. Paint protects the wood from the elements of nature. If you see paint chipping or flaking, it is time to update.
- Inspect Screened Doors and Windows: There is nothing like a fresh breeze running though your home in the spring. However, the last thing you need are pesky bugs and bees inside. Be sure all of your screens are free from rips and holes.
- Replace Air Filters: The change of season is a great time to remind yourself to change your air filters. With high pollen and allergens this time of year, your air filter is working double time.
- Test Your Air Conditioning: It may not be hot enough yet to run your AC, but it is coming! Now is a great time to start up your AC unit to make sure everything is running properly. If you run into a problem, be sure to contact PBCI-Allen to help you get ready for those hot summer months.
Spring is such a wonderful time to enjoy the outdoors and clear out the cobwebs from a long winter. Take time to take care of yourself and your home this spring.
