Spring is typically associated with spring cleaning, and part of that home maintenance should be prepping your home for any kind of disaster. It’s also a great time to take a broad look at the state your home is in and check all aspects of potential maintenance needs. We’ve come up with a few tips to help you seek out any potential issues in your home.
Stopping Water Damage
With the incoming spring showers, now is a great time to make sure your home is protected from potential water damage. Examine the outside caulking of your home to make sure there aren’t any areas that are clearly unprotected. Water entering your home could cause mold or, if enough water enters, structural damage. Make sure to check downspouts and gutters as well, as any backups or damaged spots could cause an overflow of water.
Seasonal changes are a good time to check fire alarms, sprinklers, or smoke detectors. All of these should be maintained seasonally to ensure that your home is as protected from fire as it possibly can be. Routine maintenance of all fire-related apparatuses is absolutely necessary. When lives are at risk, you can’t take a chance on fire safety.
Not only is spring a great time to spruce up your home, it’s also a good time to get regular home maintenance done. Enjoy the warm weather while checking the siding of your home. Be thorough and check things you might not think to normally, like your sump pump or heater. Harsh winter conditions could have left lasting damage on your home, so it’s important to inspect every piece of equipment.
