Home Maintenance Tips for March

We’re big fans of grouping annual home maintenance tasks by month, so they’re easy to tackle, and they don’t take a whole weekend. Spreading home maintenance tasks over the year also means you’re paying more attention to your home, and if something looks amiss, you might catch it before it becomes a major problem.

Here’s a list of what we recommend tackling in March to help get your home ready for spring and summer. April showers are on their way.

  1. Clear your gutters of debris to keep them flowing freely during spring showers. If leave and other debris are a consistent problem, consider installing gutter guards or screens to prevent future clogging. Practice ladder safety, and if needed, call a gutter pro.
  2. Clean dust and debris from your AC condenser to keep it running efficiently. Use your garden hose with a sprayer nozzle to rinse away dirt and leaf litter. Do not use a pressure washer as the water pressure may damage your AC condenser.
  3. Inspect and seal cracks in walkways and driveways that may have appeared over the winter during the freeze-thaw cycle. You can apply caulk to some cracks, and you may need to realign a few paver stones. If you find large cracks and areas that are sinking, call us for a referral to get that repaired.

See, a short list of easy tasks to keep help your home well maintained.
