Spring Home Maintenance Tips 

Spring is just around the corner and as winter departs, it’s time to check for damage. The following spring home maintenance tips can keep your house in tip-top shape while saving you time and money.

Clean Gutters and Downspouts 

It’s important to clean gutters and downspouts early in the season to help prevent damage from spring rains. Clogged gutters and downspouts can cause the wood trim at the eaves to rot. Make sure the gutters are clear and pointing away from the house’s foundation.

Inspect Driveways and Paths 

Freezing and thawing is rough on concrete, asphalt, and other hardscaping materials. Walk the property to look for damage to walkways, paths, and driveways, and schedule repairs as needed.

Clean Dryer Vent 

The dryer vent, different from the lint trap, expels water vapor and lint outside of your home. The dryer vent’s entry and exit points should be cleaned out annually to improve dryer’s performance and prevent fire hazards.

Inspect the Roof

Start by making a simple visual inspection of your roof by looking for missing shingles, metal pipes that are damaged or missing, etc. If you notice something looks out of place, schedule an inspection or repair.

Change Air Filter

Before pollen and other air particles start to spread, change out the air filters to protect against allergens. Many service contractors recommend changing your air filter every 1–3 months as these filters work year-round.
