Home Maintenance Checklist
Downspouts and Gutters
Cleaning the gutters may sound like an ordinary task. But, trust us, it can be crucial to prevent pests’ invasion. Did you know that the gutters on your house roofs and the downspouts can experience blockages and pave ways for insects into your attic?
After harsh storms and frosts of the chilly season, you should ensure that there is no debris, vegetation, gravel, grain, etc., or buildup in your gutters. Hence, you can rest assured your home’s roof won’t suffer any damage due to the gutters.
It is time to get those storm shields off your windows. Consider this as one of the early perks of springtime. You should clean and wash the windows of your home to enhance the curb appeal. Notably, try to detect any sort of damage to the window panels or structure for steady replacement.
No one can deny the aesthetic appeal that home sidings create. For one, they serve the purpose of enhancing your house’s exterior visuals. However, home sidings consist of materials (a few) that are susceptible to mold, mildew, and other fungi growth.
Moisture and water create the ideal conditions for fungus growth; it can affix itself on the house exterior. So, be sure to check and inspect the house’s siding thoroughly. What’s more, a weak house siding can lead to a weak house structure and even facilitate the growth of mildew indoors.
Investigating the roof is an essential task in the springtime. To make sure that there aren’t any major damages after the storms and fixing the minor issues, you might want to seek professional help. Furthermore, clear out any leakage sources, misalignment, cracks, breakages, and even shingle displacements on your roof.
Also, consider trimming the shrubs and trees (twigs and branches) that are in direct contact with your home’s exterior, such as the sidings, roof, windows, etc.
Seeing a bunch of winged insects roaming in your outdoor home woodworks? Beware! It may be the infestation of termites. In such cases, seeking professional help is the best decision to avoid any health risks.
