3 spring home cleaning tips [Video]

May 22nd, 2015 by admin

With spring in full swing, now is the perfect time to complete some important cleaning tasks. Today we'll discuss three tips from Dwight Barnett, a certified master inspector with the American Society of Home Inspectors: 

  • First, fix any loose or leaky gutters, and make sure that the area is properly drained. If it's not, it can lead to water in the basement or crawl space.
  • Secondly, use a screwdriver to check the wood trim windows, doors, railings and decks. It is important to make repairs before rainfall causes more damage to exposed wood.
  • Finally, perform an inspection of concrete slabs. You should be looking for signs of cracks or movement. If you find anything, you can use concrete crack filler or silicone caulk to fill the cracks.

Happy spring cleaning and thank you for watching!
