May Home Maintenance Checklist

Hello May!🌷

Here's a May home maintenance checklist to help keep your home in top shape as we transition into the warmer months:

  1. Inspect and Clean Gutters: With spring showers, it's essential to ensure your gutters are clear of debris to prevent water damage to your roof and foundation.

  2. Check and Service Air Conditioning: Before the heat of summer arrives, have your air conditioning system inspected and serviced to ensure it's working efficiently.

  3. Inspect Roof and Attic: Check your roof for any signs of damage or missing shingles. Also, inspect the attic for leaks or signs of water damage.

  4. Test Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors: Test and replace batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they're in working order.

  5. Clean and Seal Deck or Patio: Prepare your outdoor space for entertaining by cleaning and sealing your deck or patio. This will help protect it from the elements and extend its lifespan.

  6. Inspect and Service Lawn Equipment: Before the mowing season gets into full swing, inspect and service your lawn mower and other gardening equipment.

  7. Inspect Exterior for Pest Entry Points: Check the exterior of your home for any gaps or cracks that pests could use to enter your home. Seal them to prevent infestations.

  8. Clean Windows and Screens: Give your windows and screens a thorough cleaning to let in the maximum amount of natural light and fresh air.

  9. Inspect and Clean Outdoor Furniture: Prepare your outdoor furniture for use by inspecting it for any damage and giving it a thorough cleaning.

  10. Fertilize Lawn and Garden Beds: Apply fertilizer to your lawn and garden beds to promote healthy growth throughout the summer months.

  11. Inspect and Clean Chimney: If you have a fireplace or wood-burning stove, have your chimney inspected and cleaned to remove any buildup of creosote.

  12. Inspect and Clean Outdoor Lighting: Check outdoor light fixtures for any damage and clean them to ensure they're working correctly for increased safety and security.

By following this May home maintenance checklist, you can ensure your home is ready for the warmer months ahead and avoid potential issues down the line!
