Hello Spring, Hello Home Maintenance

young girl smelling a purple flower outside.

Springtime in Indiana is fickle. One minute we have torrential downpours and the next we have that sunshine we have so desperately wanted since last fall. Spring is a great time to get some home maintenance chores done and checked off your to-do list. Kind of like Spring cleaning, but with less Marie Kondo closet cleaning. Still lost? Here are some important things you can do to ensure your home is ready for the warmer seasons. 

Home Maintenance Checklist- Spring

  • Check outside spigots for freeze damage 
  • Get your air conditioner serviced/tuned up
  • Remove any brush or debris from your outdoor condensing unit
  • Check your filters to see if they need to be changed
  • Check the salt level in your water softener
  • Check and replace the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors even if they are hard wired into your home. You need the battery backup, just in case.
  • Have your water heater flushed
  • Get your whole home generator tuned-up
  • Check your sump pump to make sure it is running properly
  • Walk the perimeter of your house and check for standing water and drainage issues
  • Check your outdoor lighting for bulbs needing to be replaced and where there are gaps in security lighting protection
