April Home Maintenance Checklist
Ahhh, spring is here, and with it longer days, warmer temps, and a return to outdoor living. Yesss! Spring also means it’s also time to give that home sweet home a serious once over. To help, here’s an April home maintenance checklist to get you started:
Declutter, declutter, declutter. Yep, I’m beating that drum…again. You didn't think I’d have a home maintenance checklist without decluttering as numero uno, did you?
Replace air filters and schedule a maintenance check of your cooling system to ensure it’s ready for the steamy months ahead.
Wash windows and doors, and don’t forget your porches. Clean out corner cobwebs and spruce up your front porch or stoop with a colorful wreath, a cutesy welcome mat, and stately planters.
Clean and organize your garage; while you're at it, go on and rinse out your trash cans and recycling bins.
Rent or borrow a pressure washer to give your siding, sidewalk, and driveway a fresh look. Check for widening cracks and chipped paint as you go, making a note to come back and address them later.
Clean and repair your gutters and downspouts to ensure they’re in prime condition for spring downpours.
Test your sprinkler or irrigation system and give that lawnmower a good ole crank. (Trust me, your grass will thank you later!)
Clear brush and fallen limbs away from the house and clean out your beds to make room for spring color.
