Spring, in most areas of the country, is already in full swing, take advantage of the weather, and consider our outdoor spring cleaning checklist. It can be easy to overlook some of these tasks every spring, but they are important. Here is our checklist for outdoor spring cleaning.
- Examine Your Gutters
Did you know that 99% of all gutters fail at some point, even if they were installed correctly? Examine your gutters for any damage, leaks, or loose areas. It is also important to make sure that the downspouts are facing away from your home and check to make sure there is no debris.
- Check the Exterior of Your Chimney
You should check the exterior of your chimney for any damages. The flue should also be cleaned and inspected by a certified chimney sweep. There are 25,000 chimney fires per year due to failed inspections. For your safety, make sure you inspect your chimney this spring.
- Inspect Your Outdoor Faucets
Go around the exterior of your home and check all of your outdoor faucets for any freeze damage from the winter months. On average, 60% of total household water use is accounted for outdoor water use.
