Spring Cleaning and Maintenance Must-Dos Around the House

How to Prepare Your Home for Spring


The days are getting longer and it’s time to throw open the windows and let in some air. Spring is almost here! If you’re like us, you’ve been hibernating all winter long and are ready for the warmer, longer days of spring. You have your cleaning supplies ready to go to scrub away winter’s cobwebs and dust. While you tend to your spring cleaning checklist, be mindful to prepare your property for the new season ahead.


Check the roof

A simple system for home maintenance is to work from the top of your property down. Your roof is the most exposed part of your house, and it takes a beating from winter weather year after year. Look for cracked tiles, slates or flashings, and instruct a builder to fix any faults to prevent water damage to your roof.


Clear the gutters

Over the winter, your gutters may have accumulated dirt and debris. This build-up can cause blockages when the spring showers arrive, quickly resulting in water damage to your home. Now is the time to clear out the gutters and direct downspouts away from the property’s foundation.


Inspect the air conditioning unit

Remove debris from around the cooling unit and change the filters if necessary. Spring is also a great time to schedule a professional HVAC tune-up.


Do a thorough spring cleaning of the interior

Move indoors and get to work spring cleaning. Cleaning is much more pleasurable as the days get warmer and longer.

  • Clean the windows – inside and out
  • Do a deep clean of curtains, soft furnishings, and carpets
  • Clean the flooring
  • Move large appliances and clean what is behind them
  • Wipe down all surfaces
  • Wash all bedding and replace your heavy comforter with a lighter one
  • Declutter – sort out items you want to keep, donate, sell or throw away


A little prep work can go a long way in safeguarding your property throughout spring. Talk to your home insurance agent today to learn more about how to protect your home with coverage.
