5 Home Maintenance Tasks You Need to Do This Spring

Spring maintenance is not just about washing, wiping and organizing your interior. It’s also about inspecting and maintaining your home’s exterior elements as well. As the weather becomes warmer and more pleasant, consider performing vital maintenance tasks. These tasks will keep your home in great shape all year round. Here are some tips from Handyman Connection® of Boise:

  1. Paint Your Exterior – Spring weather is ideal for completing major exterior projects, such as repainting your exterior walls. This will not only make your home look fantastic; it can also help improve your home’s resale value.

  1. Keep Your Gutters and Downspouts Clean – Clogged gutters can lead to costly water damage. Unfortunately, clogged gutters aren’t often obvious unless you schedule a gutter inspection. Ask a professional to inspect and clean your gutter system thoroughly, so your gutters can handle the intense weather conditions ahead.

  1. Have Your Air-Conditioning System Checked – Spring is also the perfect time to schedule a professional HVAC inspection and cleaning. By making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly, you can save money on major repairs and keep your interior temperature cool when necessary.

  1. Reseal Outdoor Wood Structures – Keep your wood decks, pergolas, fences and other outdoor structures in excellent condition by resealing them every year or two. You can also perform any needed repairs during this time to improve their durability and longevity.

  1. Schedule a Window and Door Inspection – Your windows and doors go together in keeping your interior comfortable. Weather damage can make your doors and windows drafty over time, which is why every spring, you should check your windows and doors for air leaks and other issues. Caulk and seal them right away to prevent further damage. If necessary, call a professional for repairs.

Taking a bit of time to do these tasks will pay off. Your home will be prepared to handle the coming months.
