Spring and early summer is the perfect time to check on all of the appliances and systems in your home to ensure they are running properly. When you complete this required maintenance on a somewhat regular basis, you will find that your home will run smoothly without unexpected problems. This is the only sure way to keep your home protected against damage that is caused by failure to maintain your property. JMark Inspections is here to talk about some important maintenance that should be performed on your home during this time of the year.
After a long winter, you may be surprised at how much debris collected in your gutters. Without gutters that are free and clear, you run the risk of water damage to your home. They play such as essential role in keeping your home safe from excessive amounts of water during severe storms, that you want to be sure they are cleaned regularly.
Annual Roof Inspection
When your roof has sustained damage during the winter, you want to make sure you get it fixed before you start dealing with summer storms. Your roof is your home’s first defense against the elements. There may be some minor repairs that need to be made to keep your home protected against water damage.
Service Air Conditioner Unit
Summer heat is brutal. You don’t want to find yourself needing cooler temperatures with a unit that isn’t working properly. You should always have your annual AC performed before you actually need to turn your unit on. That way, if there are any minor repairs that need to be made, you are ready for them.
Check Seals for Air Leaks Around Doors & Windows
Keeping your home cool is one of the top priorities in the summer for homeowners. If you have cracks and gaps around your windows and doors, you are paying to cool your home for nothing. Your AC will have to work twice as hard to keep your home cool because you will be losing so much of that cool air through these cracks. Repairing cracks is easy to do and well worth the time spent doing it.
Test Smoke Detector Batteries
If you were to ever experience a house fire, you want to know that your smoke detectors will be ready to their job in alerting you. You should test all of your smoke detectors and batteries to make sure they are always ready. This should be done twice a year, once in the fall and then again in the late spring.
