If you take care of these maintenance areas early in the Spring, you’ll have more time to enjoy the warm Summer weather!
– Cut back tree limbs and shrubs growing within five feet of the house, or that are brushing up against the roof. You’ll create better ventilation, help dry out surfaces, and prevent possible damage.
– Check for and repair cracks in the driveway/sidewalk. Spring is the best time to seal cracks in the driveway or other concrete.
– Pressure wash your deck/patio and bring outdoor furniture out of storage. Make sure to wipe down each piece thoroughly prior to placing on a freshly cleaned surface.
– Clean your outdoor grill by first rinsing all outside surfaces with water. If grease has loosened on the grates and inside of grill, wipe off using grill cleaner and paper towels. Follow by washing with a mild detergent and water. Rinse well, wipe dry.
– Check garden hoses for dry rot and inspect hose faucets for possible freeze damage that may have occurred during the winter months.
Now, enjoy your outdoor space!
