Home Prep for Warmer Months

As the seasons change and spring arrives, it’s important for homeowners to conduct a thorough maintenance check to ensure their homes are in top shape. This spring maintenance checklist will guide you through essential tasks that will help protect your home’s exterior and prepare it for the warmer months ahead.

Maintenance Checklist

Firstly, it is crucial to check your air conditioning system. After a long winter, it’s necessary to ensure that your A/C system is functioning properly before the hot weather hits. Schedule a professional inspection and cleaning if needed, so you can enjoy cool indoor temperatures when summer arrives. Be sure to trim foliage and weeds around your A/C unit and also change your A/C filters indoors.

Next, remember to turn outside water on. Check your outside hoses & water pipes (spigots) for leaks.

Exterior cleaning should also be on your checklist. Winter weather can leave dirt, grime, and debris on your home’s exterior surfaces. Give them a thorough cleaning using appropriate tools and products for each surface type – from siding to roof cleaning– ensuring that they are looking fresh and vibrant for the season.

Paint Exterior Surfaces. Once you have diligently cleaned your outdoor surfaces such as decks, window trim, shutters, and other wood surfaces, it is important to consider the appropriate time to paint or stain them. Timing is crucial as it can significantly impact the durability and longevity of your newly refreshed surfaces.

Don’t forget about your sprinkler system! Prime it for use by checking all components such as valves, heads, and timers. Make sure everything is in proper working order before you start relying on it for lawn irrigation during the warmer months.

Springtime is also an ideal opportunity to perform seasonal maintenance on your lawn tools. Sharpen blades of lawnmowers, clean gardening equipment such as shears or pruners, and inspect any other tools you’ll be using throughout the season. Properly maintained tools will make yard work more efficient and enjoyable.

Lastly, tackle landscape/yard clean up. Remove fallen branches or debris from winter storms; clear out flower beds of dead foliage; trim shrubs or trees as needed; apply fresh mulch where necessary; and generally tidy up your outdoor spaces so they look inviting and well-maintained.

By following this spring maintenance checklist, you’ll ensure that your home’s exterior is in excellent condition and ready to handle the upcoming season. Take the necessary steps to protect your investment and enjoy a beautiful and functional outdoor space all spring long.

Gutter Debris Cleaning And Prevention

Gutter debris can be one of the most frustrating cleaning projects to take on.

Leaves, branches, and other material collects in your gutters over time, creating a mess that could lead to clogs in your rainwater spouts. Rainwater that can’t drain properly can damage the foundation, roofing and siding of your home. Don’t wait until your gutters have trees growing out of them.

When this happens, hiring a professional gutter cleaner is often the best decision. Professional gutter cleaners have the tools and knowledge to safely clean your gutters.

If your gutters are constantly getting clogged, installing Gutter Guards is best solution for you. Learn more about Gutter Guards by clicking here.

The primary goal of cleaning your gutters is to keep water from backing up into your home or business. A secondary goal is to avoid a potentially dangerous situation caused by a buildup of mold or bacteria outside. If you’re not qualified for the work, hire professionals instead of risking your health or putting off the job until you can’t avoid it.

Top Five Fall Maintenance Checklist

Top Five Fall Maintenance Checklist

The Season has officially changed, and the inevitable Fall tasks are knocking at the door. No need to fret, Allbrite compiled a Fall Maintenance Checklist for you. It’s important to prep your home for each Season to ensure the longevity and the integrity of your home. Spending the time maintaining your home regularly will help avoid major headaches and ultimately save you money in the long run. Whether you are able to do the things on this checklist, or if you need to hire a professional, it’s vital to ensure they are completed!

1. Gutter Debris Cleaning-

Get your gutters cleaned from all debris! Your gutters are there to divert water away from the foundation of your home so keeping them clear and running smoothly is important.

2. Inspect Your Roof-

From top to bottom you want to check your roof for misshaped, loose, or missing shingles. Check the metal flashing around vents and chimneys for any damage. If you have a leak, stopping the problem before wind and ice start will help prevent disasters.

3. Pressure Wash Flat Surfaces-

Front porch, walkways, driveways and any stepping stones that are used on a regular basis should be free from green algae and mildew. Pressure washing these surfaces before Winter comes will help avoid those nasty slip and falls.

4. Winterize Your Outdoor Faucets-

Shut-off any valves that lead to your outdoor faucets before freezing temperatures. This ensures your outdoor faucet doesn’t freeze and burst.

5. Heating System Inspected-

Before you know it, you’ll be switching to your heating system. It’s a good idea to have your system checked by a professional before using to ward off any future issues.

Soft Washing vs. Pressure Washing

What is the difference between soft washing and pressure washing?

It’s simple to nail down the difference between the two exterior cleaning methods.

  • Pressure washing is the use of high-pressure water spray on a surface to remove mold, mildew, dirt, grime, mud and more.
  • Soft washing is a low-pressure cleaning process with the use of chemicals on a surface to remove and break down lichen, mold, algae, bacteria, moss, dirt and more.

Soft washing is an alternative cleaning process for delicate surfaces such as roofs or vinyl siding. Allbrite’s team is trained in both pressure washing and soft washing methods to deliver you professional and knowledgeable service.

Benefits of Allbrite’s House Washing

When hiring a contractor it’s important to always get 3 standard estimates. Then compare each company and what they have to offer in order to make an informed decision based on your budget and needs as a consumer. 

When comparing Allbrite’s house washing service to other contractors in Maryland remember that our house wash includes the brightening of gutters and the cleaning of the downspouts, the soffits, siding, flashing, windows (rinsed), and shutters if present. 

Yes, you read that right — Gutter Brightening is included in our house wash!

 

We have a saying at Allbrite – think of your home as a face. The windows are the eyes and the gutters are the teeth. We aren’t going to wash the face of your home without brushing the teeth of it as well. 

With each house washing service, we hand scrub every gutter to remove the oxidation staining which removes the black streaky lines and faded coloring. 

There’s a difference between cleaning gutters and brightening gutters. We can clean your gutters the same way we will clean your siding (this will remove the mold, mildew and algae that’s on the face of the gutters) but that will not remove the black streaks.

Removing the black streaks is a separate process and requires more detail but it’s always included in our house washing service.
