Essential Spring Home Maintenance Tasks

As the seasons change and you start to spruce up and refresh your space, be sure to make time for maintenance as well as spring cleaning. Keeping up with essential tasks will help ensure your home stays hazard-free, retains its value, and maybe even deliver a profit in the future.

Here are the top spring maintenance tasks to add to your to-do list today:

1) Inspect Roof

Getting regular roof inspections done is important for your home because not only does it detect any missing, loose or damaged shingles and leaks, but also helps you stop further damage to your home.

2) Gutter Maintenance

If your gutters are not in tip-top shape, the April showers can potentially cause damage to your windows, siding and doors. Make sure your gutters are either clean or replaced.

Signs that your gutter needs replaced -

  • Bent or floppy

  • Rust

  • Cracks

  • Mold

3) Power Wash

Spring clean your home’s exterior and windows with a good power wash. Power washing your home can do WONDERS.. you’ll be surprised!

4) Fresh Paint

Give a room a fresh update for spring with a new coat of paint. Remember, paint often dries brighter or darker than the swatches. Avoid any unpleasant surprises by sampling the color before painting the entire room.

5) Upgrade Your Deck

Get your deck ready for entertaining or relaxing outside! Whether you would rather completely renovate or just do some cleaning/maintenance, now is the perfect time to revamp your deck.

6) Yard Cleanup

Just as your home needs spring cleaning after being shuttered up all winter, so do your lawns and gardens. Make sure to remove any weeds or dead growth as you encounter them. Pull out your rake to remove any leftover leaves from last fall or new arrivals from the winter.

Early spring is a peak pruning time for your trees and shrubs. Trim them up by removing dangling branches, giving them a more attractive appearance, which also helps to revitalize them.
