With the cold weather slowly going away, it's time to start preparing your home for the coming of spring. It's difficult to take care of maintenance issues during the winter, which means you're home could be at risk for several problems once spring arrives. To make sure you avoid those common issues, you'll need to take care of some warm weather maintenance projects. Here are three projects you'll need to tackle before spring weather officially arrives.
Service Your Septic
If your home is connected to a septic system, this is the perfect time to have it serviced, especially if it's been a few years since the last scheduled maintenance call. You might not know this, but winter weather can really wreak havoc on your septic system. Because the ground tends to freeze during the winter, your seepage field might not do a good job filtering the liquid into the soil, which means your septic tank could be overfilled right now. Not only that, but the debris inside the pipes could be clogged up. Now that the weather is warming up, and the ground is thawing, take the time to have your septic system serviced by a company like Mr Bob.
Clean Your Drains
If it's been a while since you had your drains cleaned, you should tackle that project right now, as well, especially if you're going to be having your septic system serviced. Cleaning your drains when you have your septic system serviced will ensure that you have a clean plumbing system going into the spring. An added benefit is that all the gunk that is removed from the drains will be flushed through to the septic tank, where it can be removed when you have the septic system pumped.
Inspect Your Roof
If it's been a particularly brutal winter in your area, you'll need to have your roof inspected before spring arrives. It's nearly impossible to get a clear view of your roof during the winter, especially if it's been snowing all season. Unfortunately, all that snowpack could have been hiding some serious damage. Not only that, but all the ice and snow could have created ice dams in the gutters, which could have resulted in additional roof damage. Now that the snow is finally melting, and you can see things more clearly, schedule a roof inspection. That way, you can have any potential problem areas taken care of before they cause leaks during the spring rains.Share

When I first opened up my own restaurant, I knew that I needed to focus on the details. In addition to creating a beautiful space with effective advertising and merchandising, I also worried about sanitation. I spent a lot of time walking my entire staff through proper sanitation procedures, and you wouldn't believe how much of a difference it made for my business. After a few perfect health inspection reports and glowing customer reviews, I could tell that my efforts were not in vain. My blog is designed to help small business owners to focus on sanitation, so that you can stay afloat in a competitive marketplace.
