Finally. Winter is headed out the door and spring is almost upon us. It's time at last to do all those spring cleaning and home maintenance tasks to get ready for the year ahead. With the fresh breezes of spring comes the desire to sweep out those corners, clean out the cabinets and go over your home and property to assess what needs repairing and what you need to do to get ready for the year ahead.
These are a few home maintenance tasks you'll want to accomplish:
- Check the roof for damaged tiles or shingles. From high winds to heavy snows, winter can be hard on a roof and checking for damage now can prevent leaks in the future.
- Clean up debris and trash in your yard. Broken tree limbs, straying garbage and other detritus not only makes a yard look bad but can pose hazards to people and pets as well.
- Clean up and hose off porches, steps, driveways and sidewalks to wash away any salt and other accumulations from the winter. This keeps the salt and accumulations from damaging concrete and asphalt.
Now is also time to check on your homeowners insurance policies as well. This enables you to account for any new valuables such as expensive Christmas or Valentine's Day gifts for your schedule lists but also enables your insurance company to ensure you're up to date with current insurance laws.
