Spring is a great time to do a quick tune up of your home.  Before things get busy for the summer, take a moment to make sure your home is humming along.

Here's a quick checklist of fixes to make now to save you time and money later!

For the Interior:

 

  • Check seals around windows, doors and bathtubs
  • Check and fix leaky faucets
  • Replace your HVAC filters - although this really should be done monthly
  • Clean out your dryer vent
  • Replace batteries in smoke detectors
  • Make sure you have a working fire extinguisher
  • Check exterior walls for moisture or mold
  • Vaccum refrigerator condensor coils
For the Exterior:
  • Inspect the roof
  • Clean the gutters
  • Wash window exteriors and check screens for repairs
  • Check driveway and walks for repairs
  • Inspect deck and patio for warped, molded or splintered boards
  • Trim bushes and trees, or any vegetation near an air conditioning unit in particular
