I love love love spring. I love the feeling of renewal when all the bulbs and flowering trees are blooming. I look forward to taking the covers off of my porch furniture, sitting outside and drinking my tea. I love the warmer weather (I live in the South) But, before I can really sit down and enjoy all the beauty spring brings I need to make sure the exterior of my house is ready for spring. I grab my Spring Home Maintenance Checklist and make sure that my house is ready when the weather gets warmer. You too?
Now, I think Atlanta GA is the pollen capital of the world. During the early spring months everything is yellow from the pine pollen.
As soon as the pollen is mostly gone I begin to spring clean the exterior of my house from top to bottom.
I wash all the porch cushions, vacuum the porch rugs, arrange for my windows to be cleaned and the exterior of my house to be pressure washed. And, if you are a handyman (women) this can definitely be done yourself.
We then follow the spring home maintenance checklist (FREE download) to make sure we don’t forget anything!
The porches and patios get a good cleaning too. Now, I just use soap and water. The experts have the good stuff. I have no idea what they use but everything is sparkling when they are finished.
There are many responsibilities that go hand in hand with owning a home. Making sure everything is in good working order after the winter is on the top of the list. From checking the hose bib to cleaning up the yard….there is a lot!
Here is a sample of a few exterior spring cleaning tasks for you.
Clean and inspect the gutters and downspouts
Check the hose bibs
Inspect the roof
Change the furnace filters or schedule your air-conditioning service
Trim the bushes that are near the house
Replace any light bulbs that have burned out
I have created a checklist, just for YOU.
Through the years of owning a home, I have figured out where the priorities are. This spring home maintenance check is complied by all of the things that I do every year and feel are very important.and. My husband had his own list and we compared – and guess what?!! We actually agreed on all the items. Sometimes marriage is bliss…..
Enjoy your spring (after all the work is done I mean!) Let me know when the porch is ready – I would love to join you for a lemonade!
