Meanwhile, use these expert tips to say goodbye to winter blues and hello to a well-maintained home:

1. Clean and Inspect Window Screens

Window screens are constantly exposed to a wide variety of debris throughout the year. They accumulate dirt, pollen, and grime that can trigger allergies or allow bugs to enter your home. Make sure to inspect your window screens for any tears and ensure a snug fit in the window frame in case they need to be replaced.

2. Clean and Inspect Your Gutters

Experts recommend cleaning your gutters at least twice a year. This routine protects your home from foundation damage, flooding, and more. If your gutters have cracks or rust, or you notice slight discolorations on the exterior of your home, it may be time to replace them. Leaf gutter guards can be an effective solution to gutter cleaning and extend your gutters’ life.

3. Review Your Fire Safety Measures

Along with cleaning gutters, experts recommend changing Smoke Detector batteries at least twice a year. This will ensure they are working properly if an emergency does ever happen. Additionally, it is good to inspect your fire extinguisher. If your fire extinguishers gauge is not pointing to the ‘green’ zone, it is recommended that you replace it.

4. Power Wash Your Patio or Deck

A well-maintained deck or patio doesn’t simply create an inviting atmosphere. Preserving a beautiful space can increase your home value, extend the life of your outdoor living space, and ensure a safe space for your family and friends. Inspect your deck or patio for structural issues like loose boards or nails that could cause an accident. Catching these issues early on is key for preventing bigger damage down the line.

5. Declutter and Donate

With a busy schedule, it’s easy to accumulate clutter throughout your home. Decluttering can reduce stress, deter pests, and provide better mental clarity. Even better, decluttering is a rewarding process that is simple to implement. Start by organizing your items into three piles: Keep, Donate, and Trash. Continue this process until you have gone through each room in your home to enjoy the many benefits decluttering brings to your life.
