It feels like spring has sprung out of nowhere this year! From the big freeze of the arctic vortex to Spring Equinox coming and going, this year, it feels like spring is needed even more.
Life is still quite tough for a lot of us, with the pandemic showing signs of ebbing but still worrying for a lot, and for many people staying at home will be on the cards for a bit longer.
With staying home in mind, it’s time to start thinking about those jobs you need to get done this spring and start setting aside the time to do them, so you can have a relaxing summer break knowing that your house is in the best condition possible.
Some of these jobs only need to be done once a year, but others you should probably put on your quarterly maintenance plan to ensure everything stays in working order.
Get a local plumber in to check your plumbing this spring, and make sure everything is ready for that summer break.
The last thing you want during the summer is an issue with your water supply, which means you can’t get adequate drinking water into the house or aren’t able to have showers or use the pool.
Using a local plumber also supports local businesses, and local businesses have been really hard hit by this pandemic. You will find plumbers in Tulsa OK, to give you some great options and prices, and you’ll be doing your bit to help a local business survive too.
Guttering can get clogged up at any time of the year, and over autumn and winter, you’re likely to get a lot of debris from dirt, leaves, and even moss stuck in the guttering.
If you didn’t clear your guttering in wintertime, get it done right at the beginning of spring, before wild birds spot it as a wonderful place to make a nest!
Wooden decking looks fantastic, but it takes a lot of maintenance to keep it looking at its best.
When the weather warms up and you’ve got a few dry days to look forwards to, give your decking a good jetwash and a reseal; this will make sure it’s in the best condition for the next year ahead.
Over winter, your fences and siding will take a lot, especially with the very harsh weather we’ve had this year.
It’s best to give them a good paint and reseal, just like you do with your wooden deck, to ensure that they will last. You can also take this time to check the wood and replace any rotten or broken panels.
Less maintenance and more calming!
Starting your garden now allows you maximum time to enjoy it over the summer months, whether you’re going to be planting a beautiful bloom of colors or digging for victory with your own raised bed vegetable garden!
