It will be officially summer at the end of the month, and if you haven’t addressed your Spring maintenance yet, now is the perfect time. Scheduling your maintenance by season is a great way to stay on top of things and ensure nothing falls through the cracks. Here are some Spring maintenance tips for your Southern Maryland home:
Check Your Screens
The weather is certainly warm enough to let some fresh air in, and making sure your screens are free from rips and tears is a good idea. Whether you removed your screens for winter and need to put them back in or you simply make your rounds checking each window, now is the time to make sure everything is in tip-top shape.
Does Your AC Need Servicing?
We’ve already had some hot days, with many more to come. Having to rely on air-conditioning for the next couple months can be complicated by an AC unit that breaks down. This is why it’s a great idea to get your AC serviced now. You want to ensure everything is clean and running properly, and it’s much better to uncover any issues now rather than on that first scorching day.
Reseal Outdoor Woodwork
Whether the deck is looking a bit beat up from shoveling, or the elements have simply started taking their toll, outdoor woodwork often requires some maintenance to stay looking its best. Making time to reseal wood that you want to protect is a great way to preserve it and keep it looking newer for longer. Don’t wait until it’s damaged beyond repair. With a little bit of TLC every year, you can make your outdoor woodwork last for years and years.
Check for Winter Damage
Woodwork isn’t the only thing that might take a beating in the winter weather. Your yard, paths, patio, landscaping, and other outdoor fixtures may have had some damage as well. Including a thorough inspection on your spring maintenance checklist can help homeowners spot these things right away and address them before they become more serious problems.
Clean Your Gutters
While it’s not a very exciting checklist item, it is an important one. Whether you clean them yourself or schedule an appointment to have them serviced, cleaning your gutters is a must-have on your spring maintenance checklist.
