Spring Home Care Tips

You can keep your home in top shape with simple tasks throughout the year. This month, be sure to:


  • Take a look at your lawn mower and give it a quick tune up
  • Examine the exterior foundation grading/slope and ensure water moves away from your home. If water is collecting near the house, you’ll want to get things fixed right away.
  • Drain approximately 2 gallons from your water heater to eliminate sediment.
  • Examine, repair and replace caulk and grout around your tubs and showers.
  • Service your kitchen disposal by grinding several cups of ice cubes.
  • Vacuum your bathroom vent covers.
  • Test you smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms.
  • Clean your clothes dryer vent duct.
  • Vacuum your bathroom vent covers
  • Replace or clean your furnace filter.
  • Clean your refrigerator’s condenser coils to keep it operating efficiently.
  • Clean around your air conditioning compressor and make sure that it gets sufficient air flow.
