Spring is upon us, and with warmer weather comes Spring cleaning! Save yourself the headache of repairs that sneak up on you by making a home maintenance checklist for Spring. American Restoration Fire and Water, LLC knows that this helps to mitigate repairs that come up unexpectedly. Not only that, but it ensures that if an emergency such as water or fire occurs, you are ready and know what to do before, during, and after.
Use this list as a guide, and be sure to add items to your checklist if specific responsibilities need to be taken care of on your home or property.
- Change the HVAC Filters and clean the air intake vents on your furnace and air unit.
- Clean and inspect window screens.
- Check the interior and exterior of your windows and doors for cracks in the caulking that could lead to water damage during monsoon season or condensation build-up.
- Clean up any debris in and around your air conditioning unit, such as leaves. This is also a great time to clean the coils and ensure that proper airflow is capable while checking the unit’s venting.
- Inspect and clean your gutters.
- Inspect your sprinkler system and the sprinkler heads.
- Note any stucco damage, such as cracks or large pieces that have broken off. If these get too big, they will cause interior damage to your home. If you locate damage, call a stucco repair company to inspect the life of your stucco.
- Fencing: whether it be brick or wood, make sure your property is secure.
- Roof Check! New Mexico winds can be unruly, and they have been lately. Safely walk your roof or hire a professional to check for debris build-up on flat roofs. Check your shingles for damage and call a roofing company to take care of damage for vaulted roofs.
