Spring Home Maintenance

Spring is Coming! Here’s How We Can Start Preparing Our Homes for Spring Home Maintenance…

We still have a cold, wet March to navigate through, but spring will be here before we know it! If you’re like us, the buildup around this time of year may start to make you feel restless and ready to prepare your space for some spring enjoyment. You’ve come to the right place! Here are some tips for spring home maintenance to get your space ready for the season ahead.

Take Care of Deck Repairs

At best, a damaged or worn deck is unsightly. At worst, it can make the entire deck unsafe and introduce unnecessary injury risks. If you’ve noticed some damage accumulating on your deck, reach out to Excel Fence and Decking! We can restore your deck to its original state before the warm weather of spring arrives.

Power Wash Your Deck and Fence

If you missed our recent blog on power washing, feel free to check it out here! The abbreviated version goes something like this: power washing is safe for decks! As long as you are using an appropriate amount of water pressure, a yearly pressure washing can breathe new life into your outdoor aesthetic. If you ramp up the pressure too much, your wooden surfaces will splinter, so caution and patience are essential here. Be sure to power wash on a warmer day, as freezing water can make the job much more difficult, if not impossible.

Spring Home Maintenance Pruning

Late winter is the perfect time to prune your garden. Pruning too early can be risky because the incisions and cuts you make tend to dry out after prolonged exposure to cold air. If you have any plants, trees or shrubs that rely on new growth to flourish, now is the time to prune them. Plants that depend on older growth should be pruned in late spring or early summer.
