front of home and lawnWith winter winding down, many people take part in the annual tradition of spring cleaning to rid their homes of clutter. But in addition to de-cluttering, your house also needs some attention after the harsh winter weather. Follow these maintenance tips this spring to ready your home before the summer heat.
  • Replace the air filters. This helps your air conditioner run more efficiently and also helps minimize allergy symptoms.

  • Speaking of allergy symptoms, dust off the fan blades throughout your home so you’re not spreading dust around and worsening symptoms.

  • Install weather-stripping around doors and windows as needed to help keep the cool air in, which may also help you save on energy bills.

  • Test the smoke alarms and replace batteries as needed. A quick manual test is better than relying on the standard low-battery chirp, which may occur without you knowledge while you’re away.

  • Clean leaves and debris out of your gutters to prevent clogs, which can back up the flow until water seeps into your home.

  • While up on a ladder, visually inspect your roof for missing shingles and any other damages. If issues are present, call a professional to make the repairs as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

  • Ensure that all outdoor light bulbs are functioning and change out the ones that aren’t. Outdoor light helps deter potential thieves.
As you go through your home cleaning and performing maintenance, take some time to create or update your personal home inventory. This is basically a list documenting your possessions. If you need to make a claim on your homeowners insurance in the future, having this list helps streamline the claims process so you can be reimbursed for the full value of what you lost.
