“Spring into Action: Essential Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Home in Bloom!”


It’s officially springtime! In with the warm and rain and out with the ice and cold! Here are some spring maintenance suggestions from Proview Professional Home Inspections!

Inspect your roof for damage.
No matter what kind of material your roof is made of, always start an inspection by looking at the outside. Using a pair of binoculars or your unaided eye, scan the roof from the ground for obvious signs of damage to gain an estimate of its state. Check for shingles that are missing, damaged, or loose. To prevent leaks or other damage, any damaged shingles should be replaced by an expert right away.

Inspect the trim and facia for damage.
The fascia is the trim that connects the roofline and the home. Moreover, it aids in supporting the gutters and the home’s roofline. Check for any mold or peeling paint or rotting wood.

Have a reputable HVAC company check out and maintain your system.
The efficiency of the air conditioner can be increased, and the unit’s lifespan can be extended, with annual maintenance. Replace or clean the air filters on a regular basis. A qualified technician will examine the amounts of refrigerant and look for leaks. They will examine the evaporator coil’s airflow and overall performance.

Gutter and downspout cleaning
Rainwater from the roof is collected in gutters, which then channel it through downspouts and away from the foundation. Water might overflow from clogged gutters and land on the home’s foundation. Water can seep into the basement or crawl space if the foundation is broken or in poor condition. Mold or costly repairs may result from excessive moisture. The gutters should be cleaned out twice a year, in the spring and the fall, according to experts. If there are many trees around your region, you might need to do this more frequently.

Fire extinguishers should be examined and replaced as necessary.
Every year, check the fire extinguishers’ pressure and expiration dates. Moreover, make sure the extinguisher is prepared to use in case of a fire by checking the pressure gauge or testing button.

Examine the paths and driveways.
Asphalt and concrete are damaged by freezing and thawing. Look for pitting and cracks. Usually, asphalt can be mended or sealed. If concrete is sufficiently damaged, it may need to be completely replaced.

Examine the windows and screens.
Look for obvious damage, such as tears or holes. If the windows are difficult to open and close, this may indicate that the windows need to be repaired or that the screen is broken and producing a problem.
