Home Maintenance | Modern Swabbing The Deck
As we look to the end of winter, if that’s what we are going to call it, we start to look forward to Spring. Flowers gracefully blooming, green crisp grass, and the aroma from the grills that always seem to be cooking. Spring certainly has a lot to offer us. As we eagerly anticipate our fun filled days ahead, a thought slowly dawns on us. Spring cleaning. Fun in the sun will just have to wait for the responsibilities of the real world to be fulfilled.
Before you jump head first into mess that was once a basement, be sure to have an efficient strategy! Take a walk around the home and start taking some notes. Just be an observer, try to notice as much as you can and determine if it is a priority. Once you have compiled a list, you can now organize it. This will avoid re-doing what you have already done. Eliminating unnecessary steps will eliminate time from the work so that it may be re-allocated for fun!
Let It Flow
Now, as your local experts on gutter and drain line systems, we would like to emphasize the importance of allotting some time to check these systems while performing home maintenance. April showers won’t be so gentle and kind if the water can not make it away from your home. Gutters with debris build up or blockages can cause overflow down the side of the home, or even just waterfall over the front. Either way, your sump-pump is going to have to work harder to move this water away from the foundation. So please, take a quick look around.
Drain lines should also be observed for blockages and functionality during home maintenance. If you notice a river running from your riser washing away that expensive landscaping, it is very possible your drains are not open. Water will build up in the lines and shoot out the only opening available. While we would all like a nice water feature, this geyser will certainly cause harm to your foundation. Lets not forget how the Grand Canyon came to be, water erosion.
As always, if you are uncertain of your systems functionality or would simply like an expert to check it out for you, we are here to assist in your home maintenance needs
