Top 10 Spring Home Maintenance Tips

Spring 2017 is in full gear and the owners over at Home Spectors Inspection Services in Greater Wilmington NC want to give us a few tips on how to keep our home well maintained throughout the Spring and Summer seasons.  Here are their top 10 tips:

1 Ceiling Fans: During the spring/summer months the fan blades should be reversed (blades turning counter-clockwise) to help push cool air down.

2 A/C: Have your heating system checked by a professional to make sure everything is on point for the warmer weather. Wipe down your air vents and registers.

3 Air Filters: Change out your filter. Check your owner’s manual to see how often your furnace filter needs to be changed.

4 Water Heater: Flush out your water heater. It’s recommended to do this yearly depending on usage. Check your owner’s manual to see what the manufacturer suggests.

5 Smoke Detectors: Change all batteries and check smoke and CO detectors

6 Gutters: Clean gutters and downspouts and make sure both are free of leaves and debris, allowing water to run properly.

7  Inspect air conditioning unit for trash and debris.

8  Replace gas in all fuel burning lawn mowers/trimmers

9 Roof: Inspect roof. Check for shingles that are curling, missing, or broken.

10 Garbage/Recycling Bins: Wash out your garbage and recycling bins periodically to prevent pest intrusion.
