The cold winter days are coming to an end which means that spring is just around the corner! Along with warmer temperatures, spring comes with everyone’s favorite: spring cleaning. Although many people participate in spring cleaning routines, you can really take it a step further by prepping your home for the seasonal change. This entails some maintenance items that will make your home better-equipped for the weather and keep it in tip top shape. Below, the Iron Eagle Property Management team has put together a list of some tips and tricks for getting your house ready for spring; keep reading to find out how!
Clean Your Gutters
Easily one of the most important maintenance items to complete during this time of year is cleaning your gutters. Over the winter, your gutters may have filled up with dead leaves, sticks, and other types of leftover debris. When your gutters are filled with debris, they can’t properly drain and this makes water spill over the sides or pool up in the gutter. Not only this, but leaving a bunch of leaves in your gutters also gives pests an inviting new home. There are many excellent guides on how to clean your gutters all over the internet!
Staying on top of changing your filters is a crucial step in spring preparation. You can change your HVAC filter as well as any water filters or kitchen hood filters you have. Switching out the HVAC filter in your home will help to save you from allergy season as a new one will be able to more effectively filter out as much pollen and dust out as possible!
Clean the Dryer Vent
Although often overlooked, if you don’t tend to your dirty dryer vent you could be overlooking a fire hazard. The accumulated lint can easily catch fire and cause irreparable damage to your home. It’s fairly easy to clean the vent; all it entails is disconnecting the hose and vacuuming or brushing out both ends!
