If spring is on the horizon, you are likely planning for dreaded spring cleaning, but that is not the only thing you should do to ensure that your home is ready for the warmer months. Here are three easy things you can do—aside from cleaning—to get your house in shape.
Get Your HVAC Serviced
Now is the perfect time to get your HVAC serviced. Don’t wait until you have issues to have one of the HVAC companies in Chicago come and take a look. Regular service can keep your system running smoothly so you can avoid inconvenient breakdowns during the hot summer months. In fact, it can reduce the chance of a costly problem by almost 95%.
Freshen up Your Outdoor Spaces
Odds are, your gardens and outdoor areas have been a bit neglected over the winter. Take the time now to pull the weeds that have grown and mulch your flower beds. If you are not worried about freezing temperatures, go to your local nursery and choose some colorful flowers to plant as well. If you do not have the space for an outdoor garden, buy a large planter pot and create your own little floral masterpiece for your doorstep or even inside your home.
Clean Your Roof and Gutters
April showers bring May flowers, but don’t let these showers cause flooding. Get your gutters unclogged and your roof inspected to ensure that nothing is stuck that may cause your gutters to overflow or direct water somewhere you don’t want it to end up. This is especially important if you live in an area with lots of trees that shed their leaves in the fall.
Getting ready for spring doesn’t have to be tedious. Follow these simple tips and you’ll be having fun in the sun in no time!
