Here are a few home management tips to help prepare yourself for Spring and Summer
After a long, dark winter, spring’s bright sun and warm days are a
breath of fresh air. It’s also time to complete a few home maintenance
items that will help avoid big repair bills later.
Visually inspect your roof
The roof is your home’s first line of defense against water damage. Now
is the time to inspect and repair any loose or worn shingles and repair
any water damage. Don’t delay, you could find yourself facing water
damage inside your home and the need for messy drywall or plaster
Clean the gutters. Gutters direct rain away from your roof, home and
foundation and protecting all 3 in the process. Clogged gutters,
meanwhile, open your home to water damage—and there’s a good possibility
you won’t notice the damage until you need an expensive repair.
Replace batteries in the smoke detectors. Sometimes, it’s a matter of
life or death and you never know when you’ll need them. Take the time
to change batteries now.
Clean or replace HVAC filters
You need to do this more often than once a year. A dirty filter forces
the HVAC system to work harder, which is like blowing money out the
window. It will also shorten the life of the system. Clear any new
vegetation around the AC compressor. To work efficiently compressors
needs good airflow.
Check the washing machine hot and cold water lines
Look for cracks that could become leaks. A leaky hose under pressure
can cause major damage in a short period of time. Invest a few extra
dollars on braided lines.
Clean the clothes dryer vent. Not all the lint is caught in the trap,
some makes its way into the dryer vent. A clear vent will save you
money by reducing the running time and a plugged vent could cause a
Clean and repair window screens. In many parts of the country, you
can keep your house cool at night by opening windows. Gently scrub with
soapy water and patch small holes, as needed.
Check the seals around all windows and doors in your home. The cold
winter weather can crack and harden caulk and other seals. Inspect them
and repair or replace as needed. You’ll reduce your air-conditioning
bill and could prevent water from entering your home and causing damage.
Repair cracked or peeling paint. Make repairs now before the spring
rains do more damage to the exposed wood. A good paint job makes your
home look nice and provides a protective barrier from the elements.
Touch-up painting is easy to do and inexpensive.
Prepare your lawn mower for summer. Change the engine oil and sharpen the blade.
You’ll extend the life of the mower and improve the curb appeal of your home
You’ll probably need to dedicate a couple days to complete this list
but don’t look at them as chores, rather view them as preventative
saving measures—ones that will help you save on utility bills and avoid
big repairs. It might be the highest paid work you’ve done this week!
