  1. Check your roof: March is a good time to inspect your roof for any damage caused by winter weather. Look for missing or damaged shingles, as well as any signs of leaks.
  2. Clean gutters: Clear out any debris that has accumulated in your gutters over the winter months. This will ensure that water can flow freely away from your home.
  3. Inspect windows and doors: Check for any cracks or gaps in the caulking around windows and doors. This will help prevent drafts and improve energy efficiency.
  4. Service your air conditioning unit: If you have a central air conditioning system, it’s a good idea to have it serviced before the hot weather arrives. This will ensure that it’s running efficiently and reduce the risk of breakdowns.
  5. Check smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors: Test your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure that they’re working properly. Replace any batteries that are low.
  6. Clean your dryer vent: Lint buildup in your dryer vent can be a fire hazard. Clean it out to improve efficiency and reduce the risk of fire.
  7. Check plumbing for leaks: Look for any leaks in your plumbing system, including under sinks and around toilets. Fix any leaks promptly to prevent water damage.
  8. Inspect your deck or patio: Check for any damage to your deck or patio caused by winter weather. Repair or replace any damaged boards, and clean and stain or seal the wood if necessary.
  9. Check your lawn and garden tools: Get your lawn and garden tools ready for spring by cleaning them and sharpening blades if necessary.
  10. Prepare for spring cleaning: Make a plan for your spring cleaning tasks, and take inventory of any cleaning supplies you’ll need to stock up on.
