You can keep your home in top shape with simple tasks throughout the year.

This month, be sure to:

 

  1. Check all decks, patios, porches, stairs and railings for loose members and deterioration.
  2. Check plumbing shut-off valves. Ensure that they turn off and on freely.
  3. Service your kitchen disposal by grinding several cups of ice cubes.
  4. Check vents, louvers and chimneys for bird nests and squirrels.
  5. Check your sprinkler system for leaky valves and exposed lines.
  6. Inspect your home's exterior siding for mildew. Scrub off as necessary.
  7. Check your air conditioning unit and have it serviced before summer temperatures arrive.
