Wrapping up our thoughts about spring preventative maintenance, here are a few more tips, recommended by HomeAdvisor, to take into account:
Do a deep housecleaning to remove dust & allergens with a top to bottom cleaning. We at FPM Properties submit this is like detailing a car: thoroughly dust baseboards and door frames, wipe down surfaces that don’t often get attention (top of water heater, washer & dryer, seals around all appliances, etc.), dust the high light fixtures and fans and blinds. Clean the grills on the appliances and clean the range hood filter—you get the idea.
Perform lawn maintenance; encourage healthy growth and prevent spread of problems. It’s a great time to do this after the slow to no growth of the winter months
Clean the garbage disposal: flush with water & dish soap to eliminate odors and reduce build up. This is especially smart if you use yours extensively.
Test smoke detectors: ensure proper function to protect home and family! Safety first!
Taking some time to put in that little extra bit of effort seasonally can forestall potential headaches down the road and provide added enjoyment of your home. From every corner of the region-- St. Johns County to Clay County to Duval County, everyone wants maximum preservation and enjoyment of their biggest investment!
