Springs Home Maintenance and Landscaping TipsSpring Home Maintenance and Landscaping Tips

With spring’s arrival, it is more important than ever that homeowners take control of their home’s longevity and conduct some standard home maintenance. We want your home to be able to prevail through any hardships, which is why we have gathered these important spring home maintenance and landscaping tips:

  • Living in California’s current drought conditions can be rough, especially if seeing your barren lawn really pushes your buttons. We highly recommend opting for drought tolerant landscaping this spring, as this will allow you to beautify your yard without having to empty the reservoirs.
  • Although we did not experience a rough winter, we were welcomed by some rains, meaning it is important to give your downspouts and gutters some attention. Make sure they are free of debris so that water can flow through naturally.
  • Likewise, it is important to have your roof inspected by a professional roofer. The last thing you want is for one missing shingle to be inviting hot air inside your home, making your HVAC system work harder than necessary.
  • Speaking of your HVAC system, it is also important to have a specialist inspect your systems to make sure everything is in working order.
  • Another way to relieve some burden off of your HVAC system and lower your air conditioning costs is to inspect all windows and doors for faults in the weather stripping. If you have cracks allowing hot air to seep into your home, you are making your HVAC system work harder to cool your home.
  • Most importantly, do a little tidying up. This will allow you to begin the freshest season of the year in a fresh and clean environment.
