Get a head start on Maintenance & Prevention

Proactive Steps for Home Maintenance & Weather Prevention

It is always a positive step to get out ahead of those maintenance items that are part of owning a home. Failing to complete this short list of spring cleaning can leave you exposed to what has become increasingly extreme weather events.

“Get a head start on Maintenance & Prevention”

Here is a short list to work off!

  • Clean leaves and any debris out of your gutters
  • Check and secure your gutter down spouts and leaders to be certain water from your roof is directed away from your home.
  • Clean basement window wells of winter debris
  • Have your generator serviced to be sure it will start when you lose power. It is surprising how often this is left unattended.
  • Roof check – do a walk around your home to determine if the winter has left you exposed to shingle damage
  • If you have a curtain drain that controls run off toward your home, it is sensible to have it flushed out
  • Have your sump pumps serviced!
  • AC service/ change HVAC filters
  • Check your chimney for any wear and tear, and install a chimney cap if you don’t have one

Water that flows into your basement without Flood insurance is likely not covered by your insurance. Taking steps to prevent water intrusion, and the resulting aggravation are sensible maintenance steps.
