5 Handy Home Maintenance Hacks for Spring
Home maintenance is an essential part of the homeowner experience. Just like regular oil changes for your car to keep it running smoothly, keeping up with regular home maintenance tasks will keep you from future headaches and wasted money. Spring is a big month for home maintenance and it’s no wonder why. Spring is known worldwide as a season of growth, renewal and cleaning. If you’re planning on doing a little spring cleaning, don’t forget to add these 5 handy home maintenance hacks for spring to your list.
1.) Work on Windows: Spring has sprung and with it comes new plants and sometimes new bugs. Repair and replace damaged window screens to help keep bugs and pollen out of your home.
2.) Help your HVAC: Everyone knows Arizona summers are some of the hottest in the country and arrive without warning. Now’s the perfect time to get your air conditioning system ready for summer by having it serviced by a professional. Doing this now will save money and headaches down the road.
3.) Direct Your Drainage: You should not have standing puddles around your home for more than twenty four hours. If you do, be sure to check the exterior drainage for bad spouts or a loose connection if you have gutters. You can also hire someone to grade the area around your home so water drains away from it if you’re unable to do it yourself.
4.) Inspect the Exterior: Take a close look all around your house, and make any repairs as needed if you see holes in the stucco, cracks in the foundation or chips in the paint. Don’t forget to inspect your roof for damage and leaks.
5.) Remove Dead Plants: Winter may have killed off some brush and plants around your home so now are a great time to clear them away. Doing so makes your home look neater and more welcoming.
