Monthly Home Maintenance Tips For May

Here are your Monthly Home Maintenance Tips For May:

General walk through: Check exterior gardens, downspouts and extensions, foundation landscaping. Make sure water drains away from your foundation.

Check/add salt to water softener. Check smoke/fire alarms.

Check window wells. Make sure they are cleaned out and filled.

Trim trees and shrubs away from roof and siding to prevent moisture damage.

Clean/shampoo carpets where necessary, especially in high traffic areas and doorways to prevent build-up.

Check for insect/pest infestation: ants, bees, bats, etc. Safely apply appropriate pesticides or call a professional.

Central air: Close dampers on all lower return vents and clear and clean around condenser units. Change air filters. We recommend having a licensed heating/cooling contractor check and clean the system.

Feeling too cooped up inside? Add more living space outdoors by installing a patio using Unilock patio pavers. In today’s video from Today’s Home Remodeler TV, the pros from Kittleson Landscape show how it’s done.
