What do you have on your spring cleaning checklist? Did you make a note to get your kitchen and bathroom in order? How about checking your outdoor plumbing to make sure it’s ready for the season? While you’re in “cleaning mode” it’s important to consider the following, to make sure your home is ready for spring and summer:
Although it’s not a project that must be completed during the spring, it’s a good idea to take care of it now while you’re thinking about the kitchen. Whether you have old under-cabinet lighting that needs to be replaced or want to brighten up the kitchen to make better use of your countertops, consider LED adhesive tape. This is a great budget-friendly solution that will make your cabinets and countertops stand out this season.
If you’re cleaning your kitchen and notice that the faucet you currently have is outdated, not working properly, or simply won’t come clean it may be time for an upgrade. Although it may not be your biggest concern, a stylish new faucet can create a nice focal point in your kitchen. Need help with the installation? That’s what we’re here for.
Outdoor Plumbing Tips
Make sure your gutters and drains aren’t clogged. Leaves and debris can cause them to back up which can create flood conditions in your yard.
Check to make sure any pipes or vents that lead outside are clear. Birds have a tendency to build nests in these areas.
Take a look at your outdoor faucets and hose bibs. If you notice any leaks you may need to call in a plumber for backup. Leaky faucets and hose bibs can cause your water bills to skyrocket.
