March Checklist

Spring Home InspectionSpring home inspection: Make a visual inspection of your roof. Look for missing shingles or anything that doesn’t look right. If you find something, call a roofer.

Compost: Consider making a compost pile for spring yard waste. Shred leaves and chip branches to help with decomposition and turn the pile every two weeks.

Poison prevention: Held in March, Poison Prevention Week reminds us that some of the deadliest items in our homes are in plain sight. Look around your home to identify and move those items easily accessible to children and pets.

Tip of the month: Is your hot water tank warm to the touch? Consider insulating it to save 7 to 16 percent annually on water heating costs. Follow the manufacturer’s directions. Source:
