Spring is officially here and there is so much you want to do. You have created a list of things you want to accomplish this spring including take a long bike ride, till the garden and break out your summer clothes. There is just so much to do!
In due time, you will be back to mowing the lawn, water the garden and helping the kids catch fireflies at night. There are so many things to look forward to. Unfortunately, spring is also the time of year for spring cleaning and spring home maintenance.
Don’t forget there are several things you need to do in and around your house in the spring. Momentum AC, your air conditioner service in Tampa Bay, offers you this spring maintenance list.
If you don’t have a power washer, go rent one and spray down your house. You don’t want to have to deal with mold growth on your siding. Spring is the perfect time of year to wash away all of the dirt, grime and mold spores that are on your house.
Clean the Gutters
We hear you complaining already, you just cleaned the gutters last fall and are trying to understand why they need to be cleaned again. You see, your gutters have gotten clogged up again over the winter. A lot of the leaves and other debris flying around in the winter has settled in your gutters, making them much less efficient.
The last thing you want is for those April showers to cause water issues because your gutters aren’t properly working.
Inspect the Roof
Since you had to break out the ladder to clean the gutters, you might as well inspect the roof while you are at it. Check to ensure your shingles are in good condition and not peeling or otherwise damaged. Missing shingles are also a problem you should be on the lookout for. Winter can be rough on your roof so take the time to do a good inspection.
Spring is the ideal time of year to trim the trees and shrubbery in your yard. It is far better to deal with trimming now while the temperatures are ideal as opposed to waiting until the days get too hot.
When was the last time the windows in your house were cleaned? You will be surprised by how better the view is once you have cleaned the windows.
Test All Detectors
Spring is when you should test all of your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. You need to replace the batteries as necessary and replace any detectors that are over 10 years old.
It’s a good idea to check your foundation in the spring to ensure they aren’t any small issues that need to be addressed. If you catch foundation damage early, it is a lot less expensive to fix than if it goes undetected for a period of time.
Make sure you have your HVAC system inspected in the spring. If you want your air conditioner to keep you cool and comfortable this summer, have a professional check it out this spring. Call Momentum AC today.
