Spring Home Maintenance You Should Start Now

Spring Home Maintenance You Should Start Now

Spring has officially arrived, and it’s time to ensure your home maintenance is ready for the changing seasons. There are so many ways to check your home’s interior and exterior. Here are some spring home maintenance items that you should start now.

Interior Home Maintenance Checklist

Check Your A/C

Summer is approaching, so it’s time to check your air conditioning unit. Clean any debris or dust from the unit, which will help the air conditioner run at its strongest while preventing damage to the blades.

Inspect The Basement & Attic

Always check your attic and basement after the winter season. You want to ensure no leaks, mold, or water stains are present. If you notice any water spots, there could be a small leak where water has come in. Check the area for small holes or spots where you feel outside air coming through.

Change The Air Filters

Using the heat all winter can make your air filters dirty and sometimes even clogged, preventing maximum airflow. Changing the air filters out at the end of the season is always a good idea and can easily be added to your spring home maintenance checklist.

Clean The Furnace

Chances are you used your furnace often during the winter, making spring a fantastic time to inspect it. Clean the furnace system’s motor and blower to ensure everything works correctly. If you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself, you can hire someone to do it.

Examine The Windows

One of the best feelings is opening the windows and letting the fresh spring air inside. Now is the perfect time to ensure your window screen isn’t damaged and to clean the inside of the windows. Check for any holes in the window screen, ensuring no bugs can get through.

Exterior Home Maintenance Checklist

Clean Your Gutters

During the winter months, the last leaves on trees fall off and get blown around, which means your gutters may be filled with them. You will want to clean out your gutters before the Spring rainfall comes. This will prevent the gutters from getting extra heavy and eventually breaking.

Check Your Roof

After winter, it’s important to have your roof checked for loose, missing, or damaged shingles. The earlier you have them checked, the better. The last thing you want is to neglect your roof, and the issue will continue to cause more damage than needed.

Test Your Sprinklers

Some April showers may water your lawn, but you should test your sprinkler system. On a lovely spring day, run your sprinklers to ensure they are working correctly and are free of leaks.
