Hello World! Welcome Friends! Winters can be a lazy month as you have to just sit inside your house and make yourself feel as cozy as possible. While on the other hand you may be forgetting all the important house maintenance tasks that need to be taken care of. So, here we are going to tell you about 5 typical home maintenance tasks to perform once winter is over.
1). Taking Care of your Lawn:
Winter weather can take a toll on your lawn. Cold temperatures, snow, ice, and freezing rain (all of which we have experienced A LOT of recently) can damage lawns. When these weather conditions sit on grass for extended periods of time it can damage, even kill, warmer season grasses. So the best way is to aerate the soil, add fertilizers, remove the dead grass, keep it well maintained throughout the next fall and if you’ve got some extra bucks to spend then you may call a Lawn Designer who might give your lawn a natural landscape view.
2). Cleaning up the Gutters:
Winters can severely damage the water system. Snow and ice settling there for days can linger into your gutters and can block the water pipes. This may result in your roof succumbing to water. So to avoid this make sure you clear all those blockages by help of a plumber or maybe by a Cleaning Pipe. Gutters are one serious problem even after winter so do make sure you clean them once a month.
3). Investing in Outdoor Lighting
Winters can seriously damage the outdoor lighting; due to extremely low temperatures the wiring may get frozen or maybe due to some winter activities like shoveling snow may damage them. So the perfect time to invest in outdoor lighting is after summer, not only they will be switched on for less time but also if you invest in solar lighting then it may be a great choice for summers.
4).Scheduling a call with HVAC technician:
Once you have performed the outdoor maintenance tasks proceed to contact a company with proven experience to make sure your AC unit is working properly, and it doesn’t need any extra repairs. Since during winter there is no need of AC, but there might be a gas leakage in it. Moreover a proper service of your AC once a year may help in more cooling.
5).Clearing the Chimneys:
Winters are mostly spent in front of the fireplace, away from the cold and embracing the heat but this may make your chimney darker. So for your house to look cleaner and maintained make sure you clear up all that black charcoal.
Before Spring is upon us, take the time to check off these super important home maintenance tasks. It could very well save you some time and money on the back end.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a lovely day/night depending on where you are in the world! Go with God and remember to be kind to one another!
