After a long winter, we have finally made it to Spring! Whether it’s your first spring in your home or your 50th spring in your home, here are some items you will want to check on to ensure your home is ready for spring.


1. Check Mechanical Room Filters

  • Once you stop heating your home, turn off the humidifier and set up a dehumidifier in the mechanical room.

  • Check your lawn sprinkler system for leaky valves, exposed lines, and improperly working sprinkler heads.


3. Check Windows and Doors
