As the season changes and the snow melts away, it is important to prepare your home for the incoming warm weather. We have compiled a list of important items to take care of this spring.

 

Check Faucets and Pipes For Leaks

 

A common issue homeowners face post-winter is leaks due to frozen pipes. Take action as the weather gets warmer to check all faucets, pipes, and water heater for leaks. Use extra caution with pipes connected to hoses, as they are more likely to freeze over the winter. If you encounter a frozen pipe, try wrapping the pipes in towels soaked with hot water to help thaw them out.

 

Replace and Update Home Appliances

 

 

 

The change of season is the perfect time to conduct routine maintenance of all home appliances and hardware. It is recommended to replace the batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors every 6 months, and the change of season is a great indicator to make those changes. This is also a great time to change or clean your HVAC filter in preparation to switch over from heat to air conditioning. Also, take a moment to empty your dryer vent of any buildup to reduce the risk of fire.

 

Inspect For Winter Damage

 

The winter cold can take a huge toll on your home. Keep an eye out for any cracks in the foundation, as our blistering cold winter could have caused cracks that, without any care, could lead to further structural damage. Be aware of any sitting water from melted snow or ice, as it could cause rot or mold on exterior areas of your home.

 

Interior Transformation

 

 

 

The perfect way to kick off your spring cleaning is washing your windows inside and outside. Wash away the winter grime and let the sunshine into your home.  You can also make an easy transformation of your space from Winter to Spring by changing pillows, throw blankets, and decor to lighter fabrics and colours. The change of season is a great time to purge your closet of old clothes or put away any thick sweaters and extra layers you find yourself using less and less as the weather changes.

 

Prep Your Garden

 

 

 

Bring back the vibrancy and colour to your yard! As the snow melts away and the ground begins to thaw, this is a great opportunity to remove all of the debris and trim branches that may have fallen through the winter. Certain plants need a longer growing season, so take this time to organize seeds so you know when you need to start the process for each plant!
