5 Essential Exterior Maintenance Tasks for a Healthier Home this spring

Updated: Apr 4

As winter says goodbye and spring blossoms, it's the perfect time to give your home's exterior the attention it deserves. This guide will walk you through essential spring maintenance to ensure that your home remains both beautiful and resilient throughout the seasons. Let's dive into the key tasks that will protect your home against potential issues.


1. Inspection of Exterior Caulking and Silicone

Identify and fix compromised caulking and silicone to prevent water, insect, and pest intrusion. This essential step not only extends the life of windows, doors, and the overall structure but also safeguards against moisture, mold, and mildew issues indoors.



2. Inspection of Shingles, Trim, Soffit, and Siding

Identify compromised shingles, trim, soffit and siding to prevent water, insect, and pest intrusion. Regular inspections of these critical exterior elements extend the life of windows, doors, and prevent water damage to the structure. This, in turn, mitigates potential moisture, mold, and mildew issues indoors.



3. Exterior Faucet Inspection and Preparation for Summer

Ensure your exterior faucets are in optimal condition. This inspection involves closing outside taps, ensuring inside bleed valves are installed, and turning on inside water supply to outside taps.



4. Air Conditioning Inspection and Condenser Cleaning

Maximize the efficient operation and cooling of your AC system. This inspection and cleaning extends the life of the system, improves indoor air quality, and ensures optimal performance during the warmer months.




5. Debris Removal Around Home

Clearing debris, leaves, and other materials around your home prevents potential damage. It enhances the aesthetic appeal, promotes proper drainage, and mitigates the risk of pests finding a home near yours.



As you embark on your spring exterior home maintenance journey, remember that proactive inspections are key to a resilient and beautiful home. Many of these tasks are conveniently covered in a HomeBert annual service plan, providing you with peace of mind and a home that stands strong against the elements. Embrace the season of renewal by investing in the health and longevity of your home. Happy spring maintenance!
