Spring is just around the corner and while you may not be able to break out the grill and patio furniture just yet, you may want to start preparing your home for the change in seasons. Don’t worry though, HomeNav has you covered with the interactive Spring Home Maintenance Checklist offered in cooperation with HomeTips4Women.com.
There are several reasons it is a good idea to give your home a check up as the seasons change. Seasonal fluctuations in temperature, the potential for damage from snow and ice, and the return of green plants all make it necessary to give your home a once over as you say good-bye to winter.
Covered Within The Spring Home Maintenance Checklist Are:
- Regular Quarterly Maintenance
- Roof and Attic
- Chimney and Vents
- Windows and Doors
- Siding and Gutters
- Interior and Exterior Maintenance Inspections
- Heating and Cooling Systems
There is also some great advice and tips on saving energy and money, as well as ways to protect your home against water damage and lawn care.
Documenting Spring Home Maintenance
It can be easy to forget year to year what has been done in previous years along with what needs to be done this year. With this in mind, it is a good idea to keep track of what maintenance is performed, as it is performed within your HomeNav. This helps you to keep track of what maintenance and procedures you have done in the past. Having detailed documentation not only assists you with remembering what you need to do, but can be used should you ever need to replace something or file a warranty claim.
As you can see below, even details such as when your deck was pressure washed last can be easily organized and documented right within your HomeNav.
Don’t let home maintenance surprise you this spring. Use the Spring Home Maintenance Checklist from HomeNav to welcome spring proactively!
