With spring a mere few weeks away, you can get started on your early spring cleaning checklist. In today’s post, the local contractor with the best gutter cover reviews, Gutter Helmet® of Cookeville, shares some of the things you should include in your list.

1. Review your heating shutdown procedure — Heat pumps are easy to turn off for the season. However, if your home is equipped with a furnace or boiler, you have to make sure they’re properly shut down. Fuel-burning heating systems, in particular, should have no residual fuel in their tanks, otherwise, it could result in difficult startup and damage to the furnace the next time you start it up. You may also want to test your air conditioning system this time and make sure it’s running smoothly for at least several minutes.

2. Clean your gutters — Expect rain showers as the weather gets warmer, which means you will need gutters that you can rely on. Clean your gutters (or have them cleaned by a professional) and make sure the joints and seams are sealed. Gutter cleaning can be time-consuming, and investing in a gutter protection system like Gutter Helmet® can dramatically reduce the amount of work needed to maintain your gutters.

3. Inspect your roof — A visual inspection can go a long way in making sure your roof is in good shape. On a clear day, train a pair of binoculars on the roof while standing in your yard. Keep an eye out for signs of roofing problems, like missing or dislodged parts, holes, or dents, the latter of which indicates impact damage caused by tree branches or hailstones.

4. Let the fresh air in — If you’ve kept your doors and windows closed throughout the winter season, flush out stale air and indoor air pollutants from your home by opening the windows in your home for several minutes. This helps maintain indoor air quality and is beneficial to your home’s ventilation system.
