We have already “sprung forward” on our clocks. It is now the time of year to do the little maintenance jobs on the exterior and the interior of you home, to keep the structure as well as moving parts in good repair and working order. These twice-yearly maintenance jobs go a long way to maintaining the value of your home.
 

Spring clean. Top to bottom. The windows. Behind the frig. Inside the frig. Clean the carpets. Knock down cobwebs.
 

Replace the furnace/AC filter. Schedule an AC check and clean by a professional.
Replace any torn or damaged window screens.
 

Check the roof. Look for missing or damaged shingles and have them replaced.
 

Check siding and window frames. Replace any rotten or damaged siding. Check caulking around the window frames and door frames and replace or fill-in as needed.
 

Clean gutters and downspouts. Clean debris from gutters and replace any downspout areas that show damage or wear.

Make your own list. As you work on your spring jobs, keep a list of other clean-up or maintenance jobs you see that need to be done.

Keeping your home in top shape is the most important way to retain the full market value, as well as the comfort and enjoyment for your family.
