April Home Maintenance & Safety Checklist

April Home Maintenance & Safety Checklist

Spring has arrived! It’s time to grab your favorite beverage and prepare your home for the warmer weather with our April Home Maintenance and Safety Checklist.

Spruce Up Your Front Porch

April is a time for welcoming the new season. We spend more time outdoors as warmer weather approaches. Spruce up your front porch and create an inviting space for yourself and visitors. Wipe down your front door, shake out your welcome mat, and add some plants or foliage. If you have the space, add a chair or sitting area. A stylish and functional doormat is a great way to welcome visitors!

Inspect & Clean Window and Door Screens

Dirt and grime tend to get stuck in our window screens during the winter months. Take advantage of a sunny day and give your screens some TLC. You’ll appreciate looking out your windows and enjoying your spring views when you’re not looking through grimy screens!

Spring Yard Spruce Up

Check Yard For Low Spots

After spring rain, check your yard for low spots. Low spots can become a breeding ground for lawn fungus, killing your grass and attracting mosquitos. Use these tips to remedy low spots in your yard.

Wash Windows

Now that spring is here, the flowers are blooming, the yard is filling in with lush, green grass, and the trees are blossoming. We look forward to the longer, sunny days, the fresh-cut lawn scent, and the floral scent wafting in the air. Clean your windows to allow the sun to shine fully in your home.

Boost Curb Appeal

Spring is a great time to boost your home’s curb appeal. Simple projects such as updating your house numbers, updating your mailbox, and cleaning outdoor light fixtures can make a world of difference. Add solar pathway lights for safety purposes. They also add a warm, beautiful dimension to your home’s exterior. Head over and check out 10 inexpensive curb appeal tips. 

Clean Garbage & Recycle Bins

Clean the trash and recycle bins. Residue gets stuck and trapped in the containers. With warmer weather, now’s a great time to give them a spray and deodorize them.

Check Smoke Detectors

Check your smoke alarms and CO2 detectors. Be sure to wear ear protectors when checking your smoke detector. Make sure you have AA batteries on hand.

Before you pause to savor the sunnier days ahead, it’s important to cross this items off your to-do list. Ensure your home is in tip-top shape this season!
