Spring Home Maintenance Guide
With the temperature outside rising and the sun shining, spring is a popular time to tackle home maintenance items that were put off during the winter months. Maintaining the outside of your home not only adds curb appeal, but many maintenance tasks are essential in keeping your home protected from the elements. Not to mention the money you will save in the long run when your house is properly maintained through the years. Here are a few maintenance items to add to your list this month.
Schedule Gutter Evaluation
The winter months may have left your gutters in need of repair, replacement, or a good cleaning. Schedule a free gutter evaluation with GutterPros to assess damage or any problems with your gutter system. Evaluating gutters can be a dangerous job which is why it is important to allow a skilled technician to evaluate your gutters for you.
Clean Your Gutters
If your inspection shows that your gutters are not in need of repair or replacement, spring is a great time to have your gutters cleaned. We know that spring can bring many showers, so cleared gutters are very important. This routine maintenance is a preventative measure for problems that can arise when gutters remain clogged. GutterPros offers gutter guards that can prevent leaves from falling into your gutters. Spring is a great time to add gutter guards to your home.
Evaluate Your Roof
Your roof is the first defense to protect the inside of your home from the weather. An evaluation during the springtime is an item you should add to your spring maintenance checklist. Prevention is key when it comes to roofing issues. Again, hiring a professional would be the safest way to inspect your roof.
Replace HVAC Filter
You may have already started experiencing the effects from spring allergens. Replacing your HVAC filters at the start of spring can improve the air quality in your home. Not to mention, routinely changing your filters ensures your system is running properly. When summer rolls around, you will be thankful for a well-maintained HVAC system.
Seal Doors and Windows
Keeping unwanted creatures out of your home is necessary. Be sure to check the seal on doors and windows this spring. Adding a rubber door sweep to all exterior doors is beneficial in safeguarding your home. Opening your windows during beautiful spring weather is a great way to breathe in the fresh air. Ensuring your windows close properly and are sealed will keep unwanted air and water out.
