Ahhhh, Spring. Warmer weather, blossoming flowers and family time during Easter and spring break. It’s also that time of year to clear out clutter and start fresh. But, while you’re organizing closets and cleaning out cabinets, don’t forget to also tackle some basic home maintenance that may save you on insurance premiums in the long run.

Just like a car, some parts of your home need regular maintenance to keep them in good working condition for years to come. Things like the roof and gutters. Inspect your gutter system for damage, such as holes or cracks, then visually check the condition of your roof by looking for any damaged or missing shingles.

Also, check out your HVAC system. If you live here in the Coachella Valley, it’s highly likely that you’ll be running your AC now and throughout the Summer. It might be a good idea to get ahead by cleaning the unit and making any necessary repairs before then. Inspect the unit’s panels, clear away any debris, and change all your air filters.
