Spring is here! Before you kick back and enjoy the nice weather, you'll want to make sure your property is in peak condition. Here are our top 5 spring cleaning chores to get done this year.
Touch Up The Lawn
After a long winter, your lawn might be in need of a little touch up. This could involve pulling weeds or spreading grass seeds in dead patches. You may also want to add some fertilizer to your lawn to ensure the grass is green and healthy all year long.
Fence and Deck Maintenance
Inspect your fence and deck to make sure there aren't any cracked boards or panels. You'll also want to check under the deck for signs of rodents or other pests that could have taken up residence during the colder months.
Inspect the AC Unit
If you haven't turned on your air conditioning yet, odds are you will at some point. Make sure to do a thorough inspection of the AC unit to see if it's functioning properly. Call a professional if you notice anything out of the ordinary.
Examine the Roof
Your roof can really get beat up during the cold Canadian winter. After months of snow fall and ice storms, it may need some attention. Check and see if there are any missing shingles or cracks in the roof. Hire a professional if you notice any damage.
Clean Out the Gutters
While you're checking out the roof, take a look at the gutters as well. These should be cleaned annually to prevent clogs and damage. Getting this done now will put you ahead of the curve when it comes to summer storms.
