Hat tip Leonard @Compass:

Today is the last day of Winter 2022, and as Spring arrives, consider the following:

1. Clean up winter debris, old leaves, fallen branches, etc.

2. Check your roof. Winter winds may have caused damage that requires your attention.

3. Clean out gutters: they probably collected all sorts of debris over winter.

4. Clean and/or replace AC filters.

5. Deep clean your dryer vent and other appliances.

6. Check your washing machine hoses: Maybe install a leak detector?

7. Clean and repair screens…the bugs are coming!

8. Pressure wash decks, fences, etc. and check for damages.

9. Fix cracks in sidewalks and driveways before rains cause more decay.

10. Paint! Some surfaces may be overdue for some painting.

11. Replace smoke detector batteries if they are not hard wired.

12. Sharpen blades for garden equipment and kitchen knives.

13. Check caulking around doors and windows to conserve energy.

14. Trim bushes/trees and clean thoroughly around any mechanical equipment.

15. Drain your water heater to clear out sediment.

Ongoing small maintenance items can prevent larger ones. Keeping any home in tip-top shape year-round is smart. Doing these things just before selling is wonderful for the next homeowner, but you may wish to enjoy a spiffy home too!
