Home Maintenance, Spring Edition
We are now a couple weeks into SPRING and starting to get a few warm & sunny days! WooHoo! Since most of us are safe at home (you see what I did there? Safe not Stuck), we have a little extra time to focus on Home Maintenance and make sure our homes are ready for this next season!
Check the exterior of your home for cracks, peeling or chipped paint, and general wear and tear. Have damaged areas repaired and repainted as needed for lasting protection.
Clean debris out of gutters and downspouts and check connections to ensure they are still in good tight position.
Check patios and walkways for cracks and any loose bricks or pavers. These are a tripping hazard that should be correctly quickly.
Install window screens if they were removed for the winter and make sure they are clean and in good condition.
Walk around the property and check for damaged tree limbs and branches. If a large tree appears to be damaged, be safe and call a professional to address any issues.
Inspect raised planter beds to make sure they’re in good shape. Before it’s time to plant, mix in some compost and fresh garden soil to help your flowers and vegetables thrive.
Inspect the irrigation system for broken sprinkler heads and emitters. Also check for overspray and have the system adjusted to prevent water waste.
