How to Prep Your Home for Spring (and Ensure a Worry-Free Summer)!

April 3, 2018

The weather is getting warmer, flowers are blooming, and our neighborhood is feeling a little bit brighter with the coming of Spring. With the hot summer days approaching and summer vacations ahead, here are a few tips to prep your home for spring and make more time (and less work!) for a Summer full of fun!

Patio Perk Up –

Now is a great time to show some love to your patio furniture. They’ve weathered the winter longing for those warm sun rays – so whether you have wood, plastic, or upholstery, a good cleaning will have them looking their best.

Shake the Leaves Off –

Check gutters and crawls space vents along your foundation walls if you have them, and clear away any leaves or debris blocking them. This is also a great opportunity to clear out dryer vents and improve the safety of your laundry room.

Safety Check –

Take the time to test the safety equipment in your home. Check smoke alarms and other safety monitors and equipment in your home, such as carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers. You can even review your family’s severe weather and fire escape plans. This will give you peace of mind to kick back and enjoy the warmer weather!
