March Home Maintenance To-Dos

As we wrap up the winter season and as spring is just around the corner, March is the perfect time to tackle some home maintenance tasks to prepare for the warmer months coming ahead. From sprucing up your space to adjusting to daylight savings time, here’s a handy checklist to ensure that your home is in top shape this March.


    1. Exterior Inspection and Cleanup: Check your roof for any signs of damage, such as missing shingles or leaks, and schedule repairs as needed. Inspect your gutters and downspouts for debris and ensure that they are properly attached to prevent any water damage. Trim back any overgrown trees and plants to prevent any damage.  
    2. Lawn and Garden Care: Rake up any remaining leaves and debris from your lawn to promote healthy growth. Begin planning and planting your spring garden, including flowers, vegetables, and herbs, to enjoy a vibrant outdoor space in the coming months. 
    3. HVAC Maintenance: Schedule a professional HVAC inspection and tune-up to ensure your system is running efficiently and ready for the warmer months ahead. Replace your HVAC filters to improve air quality and prevent system strain.
    4. Window and Door Inspection: Check for any gaps or cracks around windows and doors to seal them with weatherstripping or caulk to improve energy efficiency.
    5. Outdoor Equipment Maintenance: Clean and inspect your outdoor furniture, grill, and patio accessories, and make any necessary repairs or replacements. Service your lawn mower and other outdoor equipment.
    6. Plumbing Checks: Inspect your outdoor faucets and hoses for leaks or damage and repair or replace as needed. Check your indoor plumbing for any leaks, especially under sinks and around appliances like washing machines and dishwashers.
    7. Safety Checks: Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and replace batteries as needed. Also inspect and clean your dryer vent to prevent fire hazards and improve dryer efficiency.
    8. Plan Your Spring Cleaning: With Spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start planning your annual Spring cleaning. Make a list of tasks to tackle, declutter your home, and schedule deep cleaning appointments as needed.  


By tackling these March home maintenance tasks, you’ll ensure that your home is ready to embrace the joys of Spring while also protecting your investment for years to come. So roll up your sleeves, gather your tools, and get ready to give your home the care and attention it deserves!
