Now that the spring season has arrived, there are numerous tips to take into consideration when maintaining your Huntington Beach home. Below are a few spring maintenance tips for all homeowners.
-Make sure to examine the caulking around your home’s shower, sink and bathtubs. If the caulking around these areas are cracked or dried, it is advised you replace it with a caulking gun or applicator tubes filled with caulking material. Your home’s bathtub should be checked for damaged caulking at least once every 3 months or so.
-Whether you are using your home’s fireplace or not, it is important to maintain the area in order to keep it clean, as well as keep the warm air from being released from your home.
-Make sure to check your home’s electrical panel and reset your breakers as well. A properly functioning circuit breaker protects your home’s wires from overheating by turning off excess power to a particular circuit.
-Find out if your home’s roof is pitched, and if so, make sure to check the louvered openings. Louvered openings are the space between the roof and the ceiling. This space should remain opened and clear of materials or obstructions all year round.
-Pest control is especially pertinent to a Huntington Beach home. Pests such as termites have the potential to have a damaging, costly effect to your home’s interior and exterior. Homeowners are recommended to conduct a pest or termite inspection once each year in order to make sure that your home is not susceptible to them or overrun by them.
