You perform regular cleaning and maintenance to keep your custom home looking its best, but as the winter gives way to warmer weather, your custom built home needs a little extra attention for a successful transition. Courtesy of the L. Cramer luxury homebuilders, the following are a few items that should be on your spring home checklist this season.
Clean the Fireplace: Your fireplace is a beautiful and functional element of your custom-designed home. However, if you have a wood-burning fireplace, it needs regular cleaning, and spring is the perfect time to give it some extra care. An annual inspection is advised to look at the heating venting systems, the chimney, and the flue. This will ensure your fireplace remains in good condition to warm your home when cool weather returns.
Inspect the Exterior: The winter snow can both hide and cause a variety of issues around your luxury home. For example, the freeze/thaw cycle in Minnesota can impact the stone or paved paths on your property. If you see any cracks or damage that may make the paths unsafe or in need of repair, let your landscaper know. Also, the winter weather can cause damage to your roof that may not be obvious. Walking your property to check for damaged paths and doing a spot check of your roof helps you catch problems before they become bigger.
Wash the Windows: It’s common for dirt to build up on your windows over the winter months. Scheduling your window washer to clean away the grime allows your windows to function as energy efficiently as possible, plus, you will have a clear view of long-awaited blue skies and spring sunshine.
Spring HVAC Inspection: We highly recommend a spring HVAC inspection and cleaning to maximize your unit’s energy efficiency and useful life. The HVAC contractor will checking thermostats, major and minor components, clean the units, and ensure the settings are correct for warmer season ahead.
