How to prepare your home for Spring

Introduction

It’s that time of year again! The birds are singing, the weather is warming, Spring is in the air and it’s time to start getting ready for the season. Here are some ideas on how to prepare your home for Spring.

Check your roof and your gutters

The rainy season is right around the corner, so now is a good time to check your roof to make sure all your shingles are still intact. This way, you can worry less about unexpected roof leaks in the coming months. If you have gutters, go ahead and check them while you’re up there. Make sure they are clean and clear of debris so they’re ready to direct the water away from your home. Taking care of this now will prevent costly repairs to your foundation.

Spruce up your landscape

Trim back any of the dead vegetation left over from winter and clear your yard of any debris so it is ready for seeding. Once the threat of your last frost is over, it’s time to get your garden started. Plant those seeds and bulbs!

Don’t forget to get that lawnmower ready, too. Sharpen your blades and remove any debris that are caked on from last year. Change the oil and get your gas or charge up those batteries if your mower is electric.

Clean your home’s exterior

Power or pressure wash your windows, exterior walls, vents, and driveway. Prepare your patio, clean your furniture, and get that grill ready for cooking!

Do some spring cleaning indoors

Spring cleaning is in the air! This is the time to do all the cleaning that you don’t typically do on a regular basis. Things like your baseboards, walls, doors, blinds, light fixtures, vents, and windows could all probably use a good wipe. Check out the items in your fridge and pantry, get rid of any unwanted items and scrub the spaces clean. Get rid of anything that’s cluttering your home. Clutter can bring stress into your life even if you don’t realize it. If you haven’t used it in the last year and you don’t have a specific plan for it, it’s probably safe to get rid of it.

Check your alarms and filters

Test those smoke, carbon monoxide and security alarms to assure they are in working order. Check for and replace any old batteries now to prevent them from going off unexpectedly. If you haven’t done it within the last month or so, go ahead and check your air filters and change them if necessary. They might be filled up from all that spring cleaning that you did!
