It’s the time of year for spring cleaning! As you’re working on spring cleaning projects around your home, check routine home maintenance off your list, too.
For instance, when cleaning windows, check for holes in screens and areas around window sills that need caulking refreshed. Spring is the perfect time to remove leaves from roof gutters and for checking to be sure that surface flashing and soffits don’t need repairs before storm season.
