6 Ways to Get Your Home Ready for Spring
Banish winter with some warm weather prep.
The thermometer may still be sometimes showing winter, especially in the mornings, but spring is officially here! Get a jump on these home maintenance tasks now (or as soon as weather allows), and you’ll be ready to relax and enjoy the return of sunshine and warm breezes when Mother Nature sends them our way.
Replace batteries for smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
Have your air conditioner inspected and serviced, and replace HVAC filters.
Prepare garden beds for spring planting by removing weeds, loosening compacted soil, and applying organic fertilizer as needed.
Inspect yard tools to see what needs to be repaired or replaced, and service your lawnmower by sharpening blades, cleaning the carburetor, and changing out gasoline.
Check basements and attics for any sign of leaks or mold, and make sure no pests have settled in during the winter.
Declutter your house and garage so you’re ready to do a thorough spring cleaning when it’s warm enough to air out the house.
