Spring into action: Protect your home2016-04-01 10:39:32 Posted By Jila Rezai
The flowers are blooming, the birds are singing and our homes have a bad case of the winter blues. But before you tackle those dirty chores, remember that spring cleaning is a tradition that serves a very useful purpose - to rid the home and exterior property of the build-up that has occurred during the winter months.
Here are four simple tips to help make exterior spring cleaning a breeze this year:
- Inspect your property: Frozen ground can cause shifts in your landscaping and patios which, if left unattended, can result in costly repairs and injuries. Be sure to inspect your walkways and driveways for cracks.
- Remove debris from your gutters: Ensure that leaves and dirt are removed to prevent water blockage.
- Repair damage to your roof: Replace missing or damaged shingles to prevent leaking roofs.
Examine fences around your property and pool: Ensure fences are still sturdy and lock properly to prevent injury and intruders from entering your yard.
