Spring Maintenance Tips

Although it may not always feel like spring lately, it is sure to come any day now.  We would like to take a moment to share some spring maintenance tips for your home:

  • Clean out your gutters and downspouts to make sure they are not filled with leaves and debris.
  • Ensure that water drainage is moving away from your home when it comes out of the gutter. You can add an extension to the gutter to make sure the water drains away from your home.
  • Purchase a battery backup for your sump pump. Springtime is also storm season and power outages can happen this time of year.  If your sump pump fails, water can collect in your basement.
  • Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

It’s not always easy to remember when we should do home maintenance.  If you prefer an automated home maintenance schedule, check out HomeZada.com where you can sign up for email reminders and online alerts.  Have a wonderful spring!
