Top 3 Spring Cleaning Hacks from Jandel Homes!

‘Tis the season for cleaning, organizing and decluttering! Spring cleaning has traditionally focused on prepping the inside of your home, but did you know that exterior maintenance should be just as important during this time of year? We sat down with our Customer Care Team to prepare our top 3 Spring Cleaning Hacks that will help ensure your home’s integrity and save you money and a headache down the road!

1. Clean out the gutters and downspouts

Over time, gutters and downspouts can get clogged, especially if you have a lot of trees and vegetation in your neighborhood. Gutters can get clogged and cause water damage and prevent water from properly being directed away from your home. Remove any debris, patch holes in your gutter if required and check your downspouts to ensure they are properly directing water away from your home.

2. Check your Roof

Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home, and ensuring it is free of issues is vital to keeping your entire home well maintained. Check if any shingles are damaged or missing. Inspect if the roof flashing requires any sealant and ensure that all vents on the roof are secured and free of obstruction.

3. Check exterior lights, plug-ins and taps

Check that all exterior lights, plug-ins and taps are working. While these may not pose a threat to your home’s integrity, ensuring all exterior lights are in good working order can add to your home’s curb appeal. Staying on top of your plug-ins and taps will also help avoid frustration if you discover they aren’t working when you actually need them.

Remaining pro-active is a key piece in your Spring Cleaning tasks. Staying on top of your gutters and downspouts, roof integrity and exterior lights, plug-ins and taps will have you ready for a headache free summer in your home!
