March has arrived and before we know it, the birds will be singing, the grass will be green again and the weather will finally warm up. But before we can get there, there are a few tasks you will want to cross off of your Metro DC homeowner to-do list— cleaning your gutters, for instance.
Below are four tasks to add to your homeowner to-do list this month and you will be ready to enjoy the spring season ahead!
Clean your gutters
Leaves and debris are likely built up in your gutters at the moment and if not tended to, can cause a variety of problems both inside and outside of your DC Metro home. Take a weekend to clean out the gutters and flush water through to ensure the spouts are in proper working order.
Repair cracks in walkways
It is not uncommon for the winter to bring about cracks and gaps in your sidewalks and driveway. Use a sealant to fill these gaps and prevent further cracking, not to mention keep trips and falls at bay!
Caulk windows and doors
Check around windows and doors for any caulking that may have been damaged over the winter and repair if necessary. As spring weather tends to bring more rain than usual, you will want to ensure that no water is able to get inside.
Clean your home’s exterior
No matter if you’re staying put or planning to move to a new home in Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Washington DC, or Northern Virginia, cleaning your home’s exterior is a must this March. Consider renting a pressure washer to spray away any dirt and grime that may have built up on your siding over the winter and doing the same to your deck or patio area. These two small tasks will do wonders for curb appeal and impressing buyers!
Every DC area homeowner is looking forward to the spring season, but especially those who are interested in selling!
