Preparing Your Riverside Home to Transition from Winter to Spring
There’s the feeling of spring in the air in West Riverside City.
There are birds in the yard, and in Southern California wild flowers have made their appearance. Spring is just around the corner! And we know you are ready for it. Is your home? Here are a few things to think about when it comes to the transition from cold winter weather to the warmth and sunshine of spring.
First on your list should be your gutters. They can be full of dead leaves, small branches, and even dirt from the rough weather. Get those gutters cleaned out right away so the spring showers don’t cause mold problems and water damage to interior walls, because that can be a big issue. Make sure the downspouts are directing water the right way, as well. Tough West Riverside winter weather could have caused them to change position.
How’s your roof faring? Keep an eye on it to see if any leaks have started due to storm damage over the past few weeks and months. Take a look at any vents to see if vegetation or mold has take hold, obstructing air flow.
The filters in your HVAC unit likely need to be changed, and you will want to clean out ducts, vents, and the system itself. Duct work can be hard to check, so you may need to contact West Riverside professionals to come out and help.
Your windows have taken a beating, so you will want to inspect them for storm and water damage. Cracks, damaged weather stripping, improper fit; all these issues can cause problems down the road. Now is a great time to get them professionally cleaned and let that warmth and sunshine in!
You can check your hoses and sprinkler systems at this time and replace anything damaged by all the storms and the water from rain. Fertilize the lawn and garden!
While you are inspecting your home, if you notice any severe storm damage, take pictures for insurance purposes, in case you need to file a claim.
