Spring cleaning season is upon us, and as important as it is to keep your home clean, it is also just as important to keep your home well maintained. When is the last time you did a maintenance check on your home? Along with your spring cleaning, take a few minutes to check areas of your home you tend to ignore which could be in need of some maintenance. Neglecting home maintenance and waiting until it is too late can be costly and devastating. Insuring Florida has come up with a list of areas in need of a checkup, which include: 

  • Checking your air conditioning unit- Schedule an appointment with your heating/cooling contractor to make sure your unit is running efficiently.
  • Cleaning out your gutters- Clear the debris in your gutter to ensure rain water flows away from the foundation of your home.
  • Examining exterior wood- If you have wood trim around the doors and windows of your home, tap around them with a screw driver to make sure there is no rot.
  • Inspecting your roof- Have your roofer do a routine inspection, and replace all damaged or loose shingles.
