Home Maintenance Checklist for Spring


Spring is in the air and in eastern North Carolina the pollen season is almost over. It's time to do a little spring cleaning and maintenance to keep your home in tip top condition and reduce your ongoing operating costs. We recommend the following maintenance tasks for spring:


  • Chem wash the exterior of your home to remove pollen, mold and dirt

  • Clean all exterior lights and ceiling fans

  • Replace your HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) filters

  • Check smoke detectors and replace batteries for non-hardwired detectors

  • Examine attic for any evidence of leaks, rodent or insect intrusion and for proper ventilation

  • Confirm dryer vent is free of lint build-up and confirm proper air flow

  • Inspect crawl space for evidence of any visible electrical, plumbing or HVAC problems

  • Inspect visible areas of foundation walls, vents and ducts for cracks, leaks or blockages

  • Check moisture level in wood under home

  • Inspect roof for damaged, loose or missing shingles

  • Check flashing around roof stacks, vents and skylights for leaks

  • Check chimney for deteriorating mortar and bricks

  • Examine chimney for evidence of leaks and rodent/insect intrusion


Every few years, we recommend having these additional maintenance services performed:

  • Wash and wax windows inside and out

  • Clean out gutters and wash gutter facings

  • Chem-wash decks and boardwalks

  • Chem-wash roof

  • Chem-wash driveway and sidewalks

  • Repaint home exterior

  • Pump septic tank, if applicable

  • Flush water heater


We recommend having an annual service contract for your HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system that includes at least one annual check-up.
