As winter bids farewell and spring arrives, it’s time to give your home the attention it deserves in preparation of the summer months ahead. From HVAC system upkeep to other essential household tasks, this comprehensive guide will ensure your home is ready for the warmer days ahead.

HVAC System Maintenance:

Schedule a multi-point maintenance check-up for your HVAC system to ensure it’s ready for the transition to cooling. Replace air filters, clean outdoor units, and test thermostats to optimize performance and energy efficiency. Contact us to get that scheduled today!

Roof and Gutters:

Inspect your roof for any signs of damage, such as missing or loose shingles. Clean out gutters and downspouts to prevent clogs and ensure proper drainage during spring showers.

Exterior Inspection:

Walk around your home’s exterior to check for cracks, gaps, or areas in need of repair. Seal gaps around windows and doors to improve energy efficiency and keep pests out.

Lawn and Landscaping:

Prepare your lawn and landscaping for the growing season by raking leaves, removing debris, and trimming bushes and trees. Consider planting new flowers or vegetables to enhance your outdoor space.

Outdoor Equipment:

Inspect and service outdoor equipment such as lawnmowers, trimmers, and garden tools. Sharpen blades, replace fuel filters, and perform any necessary maintenance to ensure they’re ready for use.

Exterior Paint and Siding:

Check for peeling or chipped paint on your home’s exterior and touch up as needed to protect against moisture damage. Inspect siding for signs of rot or decay and repair or replace as necessary.

Window and Door Maintenance:

Clean windows inside and out, and inspect weather stripping for wear and tear. Lubricate hinges and locks on doors and windows to ensure smooth operation.

Deck and Patio Care:

Inspect decks and patios for signs of damage, such as loose boards or cracked concrete. Clean surfaces and apply a fresh coat of sealer or stain to protect against moisture and UV damage.

Plumbing and Drainage:

Check for leaks in faucets, hoses, and irrigation systems. Clear any clogs in drains and pipes to prevent backups and water damage inside your home.

Safety Checks:

Test smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms, and replace batteries as needed. Review your home’s emergency preparedness plan with your family, including evacuation routes and emergency contact information.


By following this comprehensive spring maintenance guide, you can ensure your home is in top condition for the season ahead. Whether you (safely) do it yourself or hire professionals, taking care of these essential tasks will help you enjoy a comfortable and worry-free summer at home!
