Hello April! The April Home Maintenance Checklist covers some of the areas to keep an eye on as the spring showers start falling and little critters start crawling.
April Home Maintenance Checklist
Let’s get started on this month’s checklist…
- Check Furnace Filters / Change If Needed
- Clean Range Hood & Filter
- Run Water & Flush Toilets in Unused Spaces
- Check Toilet Shut-off Values
- Check Water Softener & Add Salt
- Remove Dead Landscaping Plants & Leaves
- Clean Garbage Disposal
- Treat Septic Tank
- Clean Windows & Screens
- Check for Signs of Ants and Other Insects
- Clean Gutters & Downspouts
It’s that time of year! The little creatures start crawling. Call your pest control provider to check for signs of ants and other insects. While they are inspecting around your home, they will spray to create a barrier between indoors and outdoors to stop the insects from coming in. No one wants to see insects inside!
Spring showers are more frequent in April. Keep the rain draining away from your home by cleaning the gutters and downspouts if needed. A gutter full of leaves and debris can cause the gutter to overflow allowing water to puddle near the foundation. That water can seep through the walls if it sits there too long. Keep the inside dry by draining the water away. Here are some ways to clean your gutters including some tips that do not include crawling up ladders. Click here.
