As the days start to grow longer and the weather starts getting warmer, it is time to shake off the winter blues and start to embrace the freshness of spring! For manufactured home owners, this season brings the perfect opportunity to give your home the care it deserves and make sure it’s ready to shine in the upcoming months. Join us as we explore some of the essential maintenance tips and walk through a checklist to prepare your manufactured home for spring.

INSPECT THE EXTERIOR

Start by taking a thorough look of the outside of your manufactured home. Search for any signs of damage, like cracks, loose siding, or missing shingles. Then, check the foundation of your home for any settling or shifting and consider making any necessary repairs to ensure its stability. Finally, clean out the gutters to make sure your house has good drainage.

CHECK THE ROOF

Look over your roof for any signs of potential damage or wear, which includes loose or damaged shingles or seals. Then, clean the debris like leaves, branches, and dirt from the roof to stop any buildup of moisture and possible damage. Consider even scheduling a professional roof inspection to see if there are any issues, and, if there are, address them early.

SERVICE YOUR HVAC SYSTEM

Consider scheduling a professional HVAC inspection and servicing to make sure your system is in the best condition for the hotter months we have ahead. Additionally, go ahead and replace your air filters to improve the indoor air quality and maximize energy efficiency.

SEAL WINDOWS AND DOORS

Inspect your windows and doors for any drafts or leaks and then seal them with weather-stripping or caulking as needed. Consider even installing storm doors or windows for added energy efficiency and protection with hurricane season on the upcoming horizon.

CLEAN AND DECLUTTER

The spring season calls for a little bit of spring cleaning. Give your manufactured home a thorough cleaning this spring, including dusting, vacuuming, and washing windows. Declutter the indoor spaces and organize closets and storage spaces to freshen up your home!

With spring right around the corner, now is the perfect time to get your manufactured home ready for the season ahead. By following this checklist, you can make sure your home is in tip top condition and ready to welcome the warmer weather!
