Get your home ready for spring with these ten easy steps

1.    Clean and seal decks. You will need 3 consecutive warm days. On the first day dry out the deck. On the second day apply deck cleaner and scrub the deck. On the third day apply deck sealer.

2.    Wash the exterior of your house using ordinary garden hose pressure and a mild detergent. Pressure washers are not always the best idea – they are powerful enough to force water under the siding, where it can encourage mildew and rot.

3.    Have a certified chimney sweep inspect and clean chimneys. Taking care of this in the spring or summer rather than in the peak autumn season allows plenty of time for repairs before the next heating system.

4.    Caulk exterior joints around all windows and doors. Calking keeps the house weather-tight and will help reduce high summer energy bills.

5.    Clean lint from the entire clothes dryer vent system, from the dryer to the exterior vent cap. Because lint is very flammable, this common build up can create a fire hazard. If it is a gas dryer it can force deadly carbon monoxide back into the home.

6.    Check the operation and condition of attic fans and roof mounted turbine vents. Also make sure that bathroom and kitchen vent fans are working properly and are not blocked or obstructed. These fans run on little energy and can greatly reduce cooling cost.

7.    Change air filters. Be sure to clear overgrowth and weeds away from outdoor air units, if the unit is blocked the air conditioner will not be able to operate properly and could even suffer an expensive failure.

8.    Clean any lingering fall leaves from gutters. It is also a good idea to repair loose gutter nails or other gutter damage before the heavy spring and summer rains.

9.    The heat and humidity can cause wooden windows and doors to swell and stick.  To keep windows and doors from sticking make sure that they are sealed with a good coat of paint, including the tops and bottom.

To prepare for summer, make sure attics are well insulated and ventilated. Excess heat in the upstairs area of a 2-story home, or a ranch style home feeling “hot from above” could indicate insufficient attic insulation and poor ventilation.

Start Outdoor Spring Cleaning in the Garage

The garage is the place that we put things that we have no other place to put. But after a while we end up with a mess and cant find something that you really need. Then you end up going to town to buy a new one because you don’t want to go through the hassle of finding it. Here are some easy tips to get the Garage back in order.

1.    Arrange items that you want to keep into separate piles. (Keep, Trash, Sale)

2.    Determine what kinds of containers will best store these items.

3.    Hang pegs to organize certain item (even lawn chairs).

4.    Bicycles can be hung on rafters when not in use; when in use make sure you assign a certain place to park them.

5.    Keep as many items off the floor as possible so it is easy to sweep. Twice a month is a good sweep schedule. Dust in the garage ends up in the house.

6.    If you have bare studs in the garage, place slats of wood across the studs to create bins for items like sports equipment and gardening tools.

7.    Hammer nails into the wall or into the studs for tools and other articles.

8.    Keep similar items together in marked containers and go through them once a season to clean out things you’re not using anymore.

9.    Hang shelves and keep storage containers marked so you can tell what is in them.

10. Use hooks instead of nails for items such as outdoor clothing, backpacks, umbrellas, etc.

11.  Keep items you will need for that season close to the front of the garage for easy access.

12.  Strap items together like bats and fishing rods for easy storage and transport.

13.  Take the opportunity to make inventory of items you will need for the spring such as missing tools.

14. Hang garden hose, spare tires and other unwieldy equipment up to prevent accidents.
