Update your home for the spring season ahead.
The warmer weather and longer days are here. Spring is a great time of year for homeowners to break out of the winter run and update their homes for the sunnier days ahead. Finally, it’s time to open the curtains, let in the sun, and blow away the winter cobwebs. Welcome spring in by preparing your home for the season.
Head up to the roof: The roof is your home’s first line of defense. It saw you through the winter, now it’s time to prep it for the spring and summer. Check that there are no leaks, cracked shingles, or missing slates. If there are, hire a professional (or DIY – depending on how comfortable you feel) to get your roof back in tip top shape.
Clean the gutters: We may not be done with the rain just yet! April showers can quickly fall, meaning that your gutters must be in good condition. Clear out the debris, leaves, and twigs that have accumulated in your home’s gutters over winter. While you’re at it, direct the drainpipes away from the home’s foundation.
Seal cracks: If your home took a beating over the winter, you may have noticed that you’ve got more drafts in the home. Take the time now to seal up these cracks and gaps to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter!
Bring in some color: Gone are the dark days of winter! Update your home’s theme by adding some bright and cheery-colored pillows or decorative accents. Better yet, buy a bunch of yellow, orange, and pink flowers to truly welcome in the new season.
Spring clean: It wouldn’t be spring without spring cleaning, right? Roll up your sleeves, grab the mop and move room by room. First, tidy up, remove clutter, dust, vacuum, clean the walls, and wipe down the windows!
