Breaking Down Seasonal Outdoor Home Maintenance Tasks
Owning a home involves more than just paying the mortgage and attending to the regular utility bills. There is the need to perform regular interior cleaning tasks, such as mopping, sweeping and cleaning out the cupboards, as well as basic home repair tasks. There is also the need to stay on top of outdoor home maintenance tasks. Here is an idea of some of the tasks you may want to schedule for each season.
- Clean the Gutters
Along with checking to see if you need any roofing repairs on your Sterling Heights home, cleaning out the gutters at the end of each season is a good practice to ensure proper drainage and prevent any unwanted home damage. You can do it yourself if you have the proper equipment, or simply reach out to professionals from a company specializing in roofing repair in Sterling Heights. Not only will they be able to clean out your gutters, but will also check for any other damage on the roof or early indicators of home leaks.
- Lawncare and Landscaping
At the end of each season it is important to tackle outdoor landscaping and lawn maintenance tasks. These will be different for each season, but staying on top of them and committing to regular seasonal work will make sure you don’t fall behind or have to invest a lot of time and money in fixing things up in any given season. Here is an example of some typical seasonal tasks you should take on:
- Winter: Get out the rake and rake the lawn, removing dead grass and debris left over from the winter and offering the opportunity for fresh new grass to grow.
- Spring: Time to tackle growth and new life! The beginning of spring is when you can plant your first seeds for your garden, and prepare the garden beds for the season ahead.
- Summer: Take the good weather of this season to spend extra time outside tackling bigger projects such as developing a new garden bed or putting in a new hedge line.
- Fall: With the leaves coming down, stay on top of keeping them raked up and out of the gutters to prevent any problems in the winter.
- Windows and Decking
Cleaning the outside of the windows, washing and repainting the deck, as well as repairing any damaged or rotting wood in your verandah structure are all critical tasks when it comes to looking after the outside of your home. Plan to check in on your deck each season and set up for window washing a few times a year.
