Spring is here! Officially on March 20 we started the season. It feels like Spring has sprung, it is tax season, the days are longer and the sun has started to show up. In fact, there were a few days last week that it almost felt like sandal weather!

So what are your Spring plans? Some begin to garden and work on their yard, others start their Spring cleaning. These are both very important, but we also have some helpful suggestions  for work around the house you can do to prepare for the Spring season.


  1. Furnace/ Air Conditioner Unit - check filters and change, schedule a service call
  2. Range Hood - check and clean your filters
  3. Bathroom Fans - clean fans and check for mildew or mold
  4. Fireplace / Chimney - check your chimney, clean your firebox, check the flashing
  5. Attic - check for signs of roof leaks or pests
  6. Basement - check for leaks, cracks, mildew, mold, rot
  7. Crawl space - check for pests / wildlife, check the insulation and vapor barrier
  8. Exterior of home - check paint, caulking, putty and address any needs
  9. Decks and patios - wash, clean, and seal as needed
  10. Landscaping and ground cover: start Spring pruning and plan your landscape maintenance routine
  11. Sprinkler system - service and start system
  12. Clothes dryer - Clean filter, check duct for lint
  13. Fire extinguishers - check pressure, recharge or replace
  14. Smoke detectors - test, replace batteries if needed
  15. Water heater - check for leaks
