With the weather warming up, you are likely eager to get outside and enjoy your outdoor porch or patio area. However, during the winter months, you may have seen some damage to your home or some areas that need special attention. Here are some tips for outdoor spring cleaning that will help repair winter damage and make your home look great:
- Check your gutters. From the late fall through the winter months, falling leaves, twigs and other debris can clog your gutters and prevent them from moving water away from your home. Having clogged gutters can even be responsible for roof leaks and basement water damage. Cleaning your gutters on a regular basis is the best way to prevent damage to your home and yard. Take the time this spring to check all of your gutters and remove debris before the heavy rains start falling.
- Get your deck ready for company. Wood, stone and composite decks can harbor mold and mildew that begins to grow as soon as spring and summer heat arrives. Save yourself some time and clean your deck thoroughly so that you are ready to set up your patio furniture. There are a range of cleaning options available – everything from the simple sweep of a broom to professional grade power washing. Choosing the right service is based on the condition of your deck and whether you plan to stain it.
- Clean windows to take advantage of the view. After blowing and drifting snow and pelting rains, your windows might need a little TLC. Take the time to wash your windows inside and out. You can even clean the screens by gently hosing them off and leaving them outside to dry for a few hours in the sun. With a little care, you will be ready to enjoy summer breezes.
- Remove garage floor debris. Garage floors get notoriously dirty in the winter with a combination of road grime, salt and dirt. Hose your garage out or have it professionally power washed to eliminate dirt entering your home.
