March
20

It has been said March "comes in like a lion" and "goes out like a lamb". The phrase originates from early US Settlers who forecasted weather without the use of a weather radar system or even access to Weather.com.  Early March weather has been marked with cold winter storms, but within a few short weeks turns to warm, spring-like weather.  But, not always … as Pennsylvania homeowners can attest.

Whether you own a home in Pennsylvania, Maryland or sunny California, prepare it for the spring season with these homeowner tips from Prudential Homesale Services Group.

Replace batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms
Clean the garage and organize storage areas – Hold a yard sale, or organize a community yard sale.
Old chemicals – Dispose of old, unused chemicals; paint thinners, household cleaners, pesticides. Check with your local public works department for their next scheduled collection of hazardous materials.
Clean the refrigerator – Throw away items beyond their expiration date, clean the outside and inside with a mild detergent. Remove all trays, drawers, shelves, etc. and clean as well, allowing to dry thoroughly before replacing them. Remove any old ice from ice trays and re-fill.
Medicine cabinet – Check all medications (prescribed and over-the-counter) for expiration dates. Some can be harmful if used after this date! It's also a good time to make sure that any meds you keep are out of the reach of small children.
Heavy spring rains – Check your basement walls for any sign of moisture. If you detect any, run a portable dehumidifier. If it persists, contact a professional contractor to discuss home repairs and home improvement  projects.  Also test your sump pump to be sure it is operating properly.
Water heater – Test the pressure and temperature relief valve by opening it and allowing some water to flow out. If little or no water flows out or it does not shut off, it is time to replace it. Bad valves can cause explosions!

Plan ahead for summer fun by tackling this list of homeowner tips today.
