The weather is getting warmer, flowers are blooming, and our neighborhoods are feeling a little bit brighter with the coming of Spring. With the hot summer days approaching and our summer vacations ahead, here are a few tips to prep your home for spring and make more time (and less work!) for a Summer full of fun!

Patio Perk Up –

Now is a great time to show some love to your patio furniture. They’ve weathered the winter longing for those warm sun rays – so whether you have wood, plastic, or upholstery, a good cleaning will have them looking their best.

Shake the Leaves Off –

Check gutters and crawls space vents along your foundation walls if you have them, and clear away any leaves or debris blocking them. This is also a great opportunity to clear dryer vents and improve the safety of your laundry room.

Safety Check –

Take the time to test out the safety equipment in your home. Check on your smoke alarms and other safety monitors or equipment in your home such as CO detectors, and fire extinguishers. You can even review your family’s severe weather and fire escape plans. This will give you peace of mind to kick back and enjoy the warmer weather!
