It is time once again for Spring cleaning and considering the maintenance of your home. With San Diego experiencing some of the heaviest rainfall in recent memory, there is no better time than now to make sure your home is in good condition inside and out. Here are some ideas from your San Diego Home Builders to consider for your Spring cleaning and home maintenance.
Water intrusion is one of the biggest problems for homeowners. With the heavy rain this season, consider the condition of your roofing. Having your roof inspected by professionals should be part of your home repair routine. Taking proper maintenance steps for your roof will add life and prevent further damage. Also, consider the condition of your window seals, drains, exterior paint and the foundation of your home, as these areas are commonly susceptible to water damage. Hiring a trusted San Diego Home Remodeler to maintain your home to prevent such water damage is essential this time of year.
Clogged gutters can cause wood trim around eaves to rot. This can expose your attic to unwanted critters and lead to extensive damage. Clean gutters and downspouts also divert water away from the foundation of your home, and can be designed to irrigate the yard or landscape.
Spring is great time to clean what gets neglected most of the year. Carpets attract dirt and bacteria, and should be professionally cleaned at least once a year. Heavy traffic areas are recommended for more consistent cleaning. Maintaining clean dryer vents will prevent lint buildup and fire hazard. Inspect bathrooms, kitchens and attics, as these can be breeding grounds for bacteria, mold, mildew and insects. Vacuum and dust above, below and around furniture to reduce allergens.
Checking for Termites
Termites swarm in the Spring. Many times, it may be months or even years before you realize there is a problem. By this time is it far too late. Having a professional inspect your home for termites will prevent extensive damage to your property and possessions.
