Spring To-do List for Huntsville AL Real Estate Owners

By: Huntsville Real Estate Expert Mike Manosky On May 29, 2013

Spring is quickly turning to summer, so now is the time for the owners of Huntsville AL real estate to address home checklist2maintenance checklists. Yes, its time to inspect the roof, repair the deck, check for cracks in concrete, repaint exterior trim, recondition lawn mowers, grills, and garden tools, and refurbish outdoor furniture.

Not quite ready to tackle such large, time-consuming chores?  Consider, then, easing into the requisite Huntsville AL real estate readiness activities by initially taking on smaller, non-time-consuming tasks that generate a feeling of accomplishment while providing a gradual transition into the big jobs.

Granted, the majority of these items are for the interior of your Huntsville AL real estate, but they’re important, too, and a far cry from the annual rug-beating, wall-scouring spring cleaning of yesteryear.

A sample of the” start-off-small” responsibilities includes the following:

  • Shut off the water to the washing machine, remove the water supply hoses and examine them and the washers. Replace worn and damaged ones.
  • Dust ceiling fan blades.
  • Change or washing bathroom shower curtain liners.
  • Test the pressure and temperature relief valve on the water heater by opening it and allowing some water to flow out. If little or no water flows out or it doesn’t shut off, replace it. Bad valves can cause explosions.
  • Clean the garbage disposal. Grind two trays of ice cubes made from a mixture of one cup white vinegar to one gallon of water.
  • Check fire extinguishers to make sure they are not outdated, have lost pressure, or are damaged.
  • Move throw rugs, mats, and area carpets and clean underneath them.
  • Remove mineral deposits from faucets and shower heads.
  • Thoroughly clean the refrigerator—one section at a time.  After six or seven mini-sessions, the entire job will be complete.
