Your Spring Homeowner Checklist

Here are some easy spring home maintenance tips to keep your home in great shape:

  1. Inspect Your Roof: Check for any damaged or missing shingles, as well as signs of wear and tear. Look for leaks and make any necessary repairs.

  2. Clean Gutters and Downspouts: Remove leaves, branches, and debris from your gutters and downspouts to ensure proper drainage. This helps prevent water damage to your home's foundation and roof.

  3. Check Exterior Caulking and Seals: Inspect caulking around windows, doors, and other openings for any cracks or gaps. Replace or repair any damaged caulking to improve energy efficiency and prevent water intrusion.

  4. Trim Trees and Shrubs: Trim back overgrown branches and shrubs that may be touching your home's exterior. This helps prevent damage to siding and reduces the risk of pests entering your home.

  5. Service Your HVAC System: Schedule a professional HVAC inspection and tune-up to ensure your system is running efficiently. Replace air filters and clean vents to improve air quality and reduce energy costs.

  6. Inspect and Clean Chimney and Fireplace: If you have a fireplace, have your chimney inspected and cleaned by a professional to remove creosote buildup and ensure safe operation.

  7. Test Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors: Check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and test them to ensure they are working properly. Replace any expired detectors.

  8. Check Outdoor Faucets and Sprinkler Systems: Inspect outdoor faucets and hoses for leaks or damage. If you have a sprinkler system, test it to make sure it is working correctly and adjust any sprinkler heads as needed.

  9. Inspect and Clean Outdoor Furniture: Clean and inspect your outdoor furniture for any damage caused by winter weather. Replace or repair any broken parts and consider applying a fresh coat of paint or sealant to protect against the elements.

  10. Prevent Pest Entry: Seal any cracks or openings around your home's exterior to prevent pests from entering. Inspect for signs of pest activity and consider hiring a professional pest control service for preventative treatment.

By following these spring maintenance tips, you can help protect your home and ensure it remains comfortable and safe throughout the season.
