Inspect the outdoor furniture
It's important to inspect your outdoor furniture before the spring season starts to ensure it is in good condition and ready for use. Check for any worn areas that may have been caused by weathering or wear and tear over time. Repair any broken pieces, and make sure all hardware such as screws and bolts are properly tightened.
Clean furniture with a mild detergent solution as needed, wiping down surfaces to remove dirt, pollen and other debris that has built up during the winter months. You should also check for mold growth or mildew on cushions or seat fabric if applicable, and treat these areas accordingly with the appropriate cleaners or solutions. Finally, protect furniture from further damage by applying a sealant or protective coating once it is completely dry.
Clean up debris in your yard
As the snow melts and the temperatures rise, it's time to clean up debris in your yard that has accumulated over winter. Start by removing sticks, leaves and other natural debris that can damage lawn mowers or clog gutters. If you have trees on your property, check for broken branches and any dead leaves that need to be cleared away. Also make sure to inspect outdoor furniture for any damage caused by birds or squirrels during the colder months.
Additionally, consider cleaning out flower beds and planting areas of weeds and grass that may have grown over the winter. Finally, ensure all walkways are free from ice, snow and debris, you may consider pressure washing just to make sure all is clear and safe for the new spring season.
Take a look at your windows and doors
It is important to inspect and check the condition of your windows and doors before the start of spring. Check for any cracks, gaps and holes that may have developed during the winter months. Make sure that all seals are tight and secure, and apply waterproofing agents to further protect against moisture seepage, draftiness, and energy loss. Additionally, evaluate if your windows or doors require any repairs such as replacing worn handles, hinges or weather stripping.
Cleaning windows on both sides of the glass can also help to make them look brighter and more inviting with the arrival of spring. Lastly, consider investing in window treatments such as screens or curtains to cover any drafts coming in through your windows and doors while still enjoying natural light throughout the home.
