Get Into the Swing of Spring With These Easy Home Maintenance Chores

Spring Home Maintenance in OregonEvery year at around this time homeowners face the daunting task of tackling that first chore that just cannot be avoided and that’s the maintenance of their homes.

But when it’s done properly, indoor and outdoor home maintenance doesn’t have to be the terrible chore that so many of us try to avoid, so here are a few easy chores to take on to get into the swing of spring cleaning.

Check that exterior paint

Just walk around your home and give the paint a good once over. Look for things like peeling or cracked paint as well as any exposed wood. Sand and scrape away any bad paint that you find, then prime it and any exposed wood, and use a high quality paint that matches what you already have and start painting.

Get out the trimming shears

This is pretty simple to do because all you have to do is trim the overgrowth on any of your trees and other shrubs around the outside of your home. And the best part is that when you’re done, this actually adds curb appeal to your home and makes it all the more beautiful.

Improve the air inside your home

Another simple task is changing the air filters in your home’s heating system. Changing your furnace’s air filter should be done at least twice a year, and more often if someone in the home has issues with asthma.

This is something that you can do on your own without the assistance of the company that installed your furnace and you can save yourself a lot of money in the process doing it on your own.
