Home Maintenance Tips for SPRING

by Carla Griffin on April 23, 2009

Spring has arrived in many parts of the U.S. The ideas below will help you prepare your home for a hassle-free summer:

*Clean showerheads and faucet aerators.
*Clean and seal tile grout.
*Clean the clothes dryer exhaust duct and space under the dryer. This prevents lint from accumulating and reduces the risk of fire.
*Inspect washing machine hoses and replace when they show signs of wear or leakage.
*Inspect deck or patio for deterioration and safety hazards. Repair loose boards, protruding nails or other safety issues.
*Keep a multi-purpose fire extinguisher handy and ready for use.
*Wash the exterior of your house using ordinary garden hose pressure and a mild detergent.
*Caulk exterior joints around all windows and doors.
*Change air conditioner filters.
*Have a certified chimney sweep inspect and clean your chimneys.
