Home Maintenance Tips For Spring

As you get ready for some warmer weather and some outdoor activities, here are a few suggested tips to keep your home running and looking like new.

-Check furnace filter and replace if needed

-If you have a sump pump installed ensure that it is working properly

-Change smoke detector batteries and test

-Be sure to take a peek at your shingles to see if any were lost or damaged during the winter. Shingles that are cracked, buckled or loose or are missing granules need to be replaced. Flashing around plumbing vents, skylights and chimneys need to be checked and repaired by a qualified roofer.

-Check for loose or leaky gutters. Make sure downspouts are down and drain away from the foundation and are clear and free of debris.

-Check hrv filters

Enjoy the spring!
