During the spring and summer seasons, the bright sunshine is a welcome change after the cold, dark winter months. But the changing seasons also bring new to-do lists for homeowners, including tasks like cleaning the leaves out of the gutters, removing dead plants from the flowerbeds, and caring for the exterior of your home.
Clean the gutters. Cleaning the gutters is an important task that can help you prevent drainage problems during the spring and summer rainstorms. Dead leaves and other yard debris will accumulate in your gutters, causing the water to back up and drain elsewhere. Cleaning out your gutters can protect your property and foundation, so it's an important to-do this spring.
Check the roof. The winter season may have wreaked havoc on your roof, especially if it's more than a few years old. Check the roof for any missing or damaged shingles, dark patches, or other areas of concern. A roofing company can also perform a full inspection and make sure your roof can withstand the upcoming climate shifts.
Schedule HVAC maintenance. The change in seasons also means you'll be relying more heavily on your air conditioning system. Before you switch over to the cooling setting, schedule maintenance with your local HVAC company. This service involves testing the airflow, calibrating the thermostat, and making sure the AC system is ready for another warm summer.
Clean up. Spring cleaning is another task on many homeowners' to-do lists. Clearing out the winter dust and removing built-up dirt and grime will improve the atmosphere of your home while providing potential health benefits. Eliminating clutter in the house can also help you feel less anxious, and the physical act of cleaning has been proven to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.
As you prepare your home for the warmer seasons, you can enjoy the many benefits that come with properly caring for and maintaining your investment. Relax outdoors with your favorite drink and take in the sights of your manicured yard and clean gutters.
