Easy Spring Home Maintenance Tips to Take Care of in Spring

Every Citrus County homeowner knows that the change of seasons brings with it a new set of Spring Home maintenance tasks to keep it looking amazing. When spring has sprung, certain tasks should be on your Spring Home Maintenance checklist. If you’re not ready to tackle all the chores spring has to offer, start with these simple spring home maintenance tasks.

Inspect Your Exterior Walls

Clean Your Exterior Walls of your Citrus County FL homeBetween the wet seasons and extra time spent indoors, exterior issues are more likely to go unnoticed. Take a moment to examine your exterior walls for any issues. Check for water damage or areas with exposed wood from paint chipping or critters taking bites out of the wood. If you spot any issues, you may need to enlist a professional.

Change Your HVAC Filters

Next, your filters should be changed to prevent your HVAC from overexerting each season. Dirty air filters can translate to a higher energy bill. Although, if you have pets or live in a dusty area, you may want to change your filter more frequently than each season. Thankfully, this task is relatively simple. Take a moment to swap your dirty filter for a fresh one as part of your spring home maintenance.

Make More Living Space

Warmer weather often means more time spent outside. Why not utilize the space in your garage as an indoor/outdoor living space? Setup a small home gym and enjoy your next workout with some fresh air. Or, add some mats to the floor and bring out a few toys to create a small playroom. You can do yardwork or tend to your garden while keeping an eye on the kids.

Another option, try adding some furniture to your garage. You can opt for a couch and some comfortable chairs to relax or add some arcade games to make a cool game room. No matter what you choose, this space can be changed into a prime entertaining space that can be enjoyed in all weather.

Start Planning Your Garden

Getting your garden prepped and ready is a big task, one that you can take an entire weekend (or more) to tackle.  If your climate isn’t deep into the season enough to plant, or you simply don’t have the time yet, you can at least make your plans. Take a little time to map out your space and figure out what you want in your garden. This way you will be ready when the optimate planting time comes.

Home maintenance can feel like a never-ending chore, but if you only have a few hours, you can accomplish a lot.
