Here are some springtime tips to keep your home in tip top condition:
1. Open the windows.
With the welcoming warmth of fresh spring breezes, you might be inclined to do this regardless. Opening the windows is also an effective way to naturally aerate your home and may improve air quality. Take this opportunity to wipe down the interior of the window sills as they have most likely collected dust, dirt and mold over the winter months.
2. Inspect the attic.
Check the walls and floors for water stains, mold and leaks. Remove unwanted moisture that can lead to mold issues or serious water damage.
3. Perform routine home safety checks.
Change the batteries in smoke detectors, make sure fire extinguishers are still intact with the needle in the green zone and check that exhaust fans are working properly. Replace anything that isn’t working immediately.
4. Clean the furnace.
The furnace worked overtime hard these last few months, so make sure you clean the filter system, blower and motor. If you’re not comfortable doing it yourself, call a professional.
5. Consider upgrades.
Spring is the perfect time to revisit your appliances, lighting and other essentials that may need replacing. If it’s time for an upgrade, consider energy-efficient options to help reduce waste and lower your bills.
