Spring is just around the corner, and it’s almost time to start spring maintenance for your home. Maintenance is always important, but the transition from winter to spring is especially important. Winter conditions often affect your home, and spring rain can cause problems if you aren’t fully prepared. Continue reading for some spring home maintenance tips to ensure your home is in great shape for the new season!
After the brutal conditions of ice, snow, and freezing temperatures in winter, it’s crucial to inspect your roof for any damages. Winter weather can cause a wide range of problems for your roof, such as cracked shingles and sloped roofing. Before spring arrives, have your roof inspected and fix all damages to ensure it will remain in good condition for spring storms.
Your drainage system must be functionally properly before spring, as rain can cause a lot of damages to the system and your home. Clean out your gutters and drain pipes, and call a professional if you see any issues that you can’t fix. Also, make sure the gutters and pipes are securely attached to your home. The last thing you want during a rainstorm is drainage system issues, so be sure to take care of the problem now!
Heating and Cooling
Hopefully, your heating has been working throughout the cold winter, but you also want to ensure your cooling system is working properly. Spring can get warm very quickly, and you may need the cooling system sooner than you realize. Before winter ends, have your cooling system inspected for any leaks, and change out the air filter to prepare for the upcoming months of use.
While you’re finishing up your home inspections, also take the time to check all appliances. It’s good to do this a few times a year, so the transition between seasons is the perfect reminder to inspect and fix any issues inside the home. Inspect your refrigerator, oven, washing machine and dryer for any issues to fix before spring to keep your home as safe as possible.
