The home maintenance projects for February involve regular upkeep and well as some winter home management.
February Home Maintenance Projects
These projects that are ideally undertaken in or around February:
1. Trim branches around the roof line to keep squirrels, roof rats and other pesky animals off the roof.
2. Inspect all vents, repair as needed, and remove any debris blocking air flow.
3. Clean condenser coils or fins beneath or behind refrigerator according to the manufacturers’ instructions. Make certain there is adequate air flow around the appliance.
4. Using binoculars, inspect roof from the ground (walking on a damp or wet roof can be very dangerous), looking for loose, missing or damaged roofing materials. Repair any damage. If you have access to the underside of the roof, check during a heavy rain for leaks.
