Spring is a time for rejuvenation, and, as the weather gets warmer and the days grow longer, there’s a positive energy in the air. For many people, it’s the perfect time to reorganize and refresh their home, while others eagerly get to work in the yard and garden.
While it’s easy to get caught up in spring cleaning and planting, this is also one of the most important times of the year for home maintenance.
Of course, you already know to set your clocks forward for daylight-saving time, which begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 8 this year, and to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. It’s a good idea to do a basic checkup in some other key areas, too. After all, winter can be rough on your home.
These tips, from the Department of Housing and Urban Development and others, can help. Call it “spring training” for homeowners.
