With spring just around the corner, you may be starting to think about your annual spring home cleaning routine. For many, this is an annual ritual that consists of cleaning the interior of their home from top to bottom. Besides cleaning the interior of your Lennar home, this is a great time to focus on inspecting your home’s exterior, as well.
We have focused on issues pertaining to your home’s exterior in previous posts, including Caring for Exterior Walls, Caulk – A Valuable Tool for Home Maintenance, Caring for Your Landscaping, Caring for Your Home’s Exterior, Mold and Efflorescence, Maintaining Proper Drainage, Caring for Your Flatwork, Landscaping – Getting Started, What Are Weep Holes?, and Hurricane Shutters. These are great reference tools for each of these subjects, but what about an all-around plan?
We thought it would be helpful to provide a checklist of specific items to inspect at this time of year – and we found one at ConsumerReports.org. This convenient Spring checklist for the home lists 8 major areas to focus on, describing what to look for, making recommendations, and when to call in the professionals.
