With the days getting longer and the weather warming up; it’s finally time to prepare your home for spring. There are a lot of tasks to get your house ready for the warmer months. Let’s go over some of the most important things to do in time for the warmer weather.

Clear Out Your Guttering to Prepare Your Home for Spring

Your gutters have been collecting leaves and other debris all winter long. Before the spring rains start to fall, get out your ladder and clear out any blockages that could cause problems with drainage. Clean gutters help properly direct water away from your home’s siding and foundation.

Prepare Your Lawn Mower

Even if you haven’t used your lawnmower in a while, it’s important to give it a tune-up before the spring season. Make sure that the blades are sharp and that all parts are in good condition.

Repair Any Damage to the Roof

If you have any damage to your roof, like missing or damaged shingles, repair it ahead of spring and summer. Damage to your roof can lead to leaks and other problems down the road.

Spring Clean for Entertaining

Now is a good time to do a deep clean of your home in preparation for any guests you might have in the warmer months. Clean out all of your closets, scrub the floors, and tackle any other necessary cleaning tasks.

Prepare Your Home for Spring with Bright Colors

To prepare your home for spring, decorate with colorful flowers or greenery. Add brightly colored rugs and throw pillows to indoor and outdoor living spaces.

Prep the Back Garden

You will have to prepare your back garden for spring as well! If you have a vegetable garden, it’s time to start planting seeds and seedlings. If not, now is an excellent time to prepare any flower beds or lawn areas.

Clean the Backyard Furniture to Prepare Your Home for Spring

Make sure all of your patio furniture is clean and ready to use. If any outdoor furniture is damaged, fix or dispose of it. Get rid of any web cobs and grime that has built up on furniture.

Check the Grill

If you have a grill, then now is the time to check it for damage. Clean off any dirt or grease and make sure that all parts are in good condition. If there are any problems with your grill, make repairs now before grilling season is in full swing.

These are just some things that you can do to prepare your home for spring. Make sure to take your time and get everything done correctly; it will be worth it when the warmer months finally arrive!
