Spring Maintenance Checklist for your Handyman

Spring is in the air! And it's the perfect time to give your home some much-needed TLC after the long winter months. Here are some spring home maintenance ideas to help you freshen up your living space and prepare for the warmer seasons ahead.



Spring Maintenance Checklist for your handyman

Inspect and Clean Gutters: Clear out any debris, leaves, and twigs that may have accumulated in your gutters over the winter. Ensure that downspouts are clear, directing water away from your home's foundation.


Check Roof for Damage: Inspect your roof for any signs of damage, such as missing or damaged shingles, cracks, or leaks. Addressing these issues early can prevent water damage and prolong the lifespan of your roof.


Service Your HVAC System: Schedule a professional HVAC service to inspect and tune up your air conditioning system before the summer heat sets in. The service will replace filters, clean vents, and ensure your system operates efficiently.


Clean Windows and Screens: Clean your windows inside and out to let in more natural light and improve the view. Also, remember to clean and repair window screens to keep out insects as you open windows for fresh air.


Inspect and Repair Exterior Caulking: Check the caulking around windows, doors, and trim for cracks or gaps. Replace any damaged caulking to improve energy efficiency and prevent water intrusion.


Pressure Wash Exterior Surfaces: Use a pressure washer to clean exterior siding, decks, patios, and walkways. Remove dirt, mould, and mildew buildup to freshen up your home's appearance and prevent slip hazards.


Prune Trees and Shrubs: Trim back overgrown branches and bushes to improve curb appeal and prevent damage to your home's exterior. Be sure to remove any dead or diseased plants to encourage healthy growth.


Spring Yard Work: Clean up debris, clean out flower beds, add mulch, prune trees, plant flowers, and maintain hardscape surfaces to enhance the beauty and functionality of your landscape.


Inspect and Clean Outdoor Furniture: Dust off outdoor furniture and inspect for any damage or wear. Clean cushions, umbrellas, and frames to prepare for outdoor entertaining and relaxation.


Check Outdoor Lighting: Replace any burned-out bulbs and clean fixtures to ensure your outdoor lighting works properly for safety and security during the longer evenings of spring and summer.


Inspect and Repair Driveway and Walkways: Fill in cracks and repair damage to your driveway and walkways to prevent tripping hazards and improve curb appeal.


By tackling these spring home maintenance tasks, you can ensure that your home is in top condition and ready to enjoy the warmer weather ahead. Regular maintenance enhances your home's appearance and helps prevent costly repairs down the road.
