If the old saying holds true, March which came in blustering like a nasty lion should be leaving quietly as a little lamb - we hope.  But even if it doesn't, the warmer weather of spring will be here eventually, which means spring cleaning and home maintenance.  Now is a great time to plan your strategy, because some things are of higher priority (like getting the gutters cleaned before the first heavy rains), others can wait a little longer (like checking the AC unit).

You probably have a general idea of what needs to be done, or you may even have a standard checklist you use from year to year.  But just to be on the safe side, we thought we'd share this helpful gallery of areas to attend to in your spring maintenance.  Items covered are exterior as well as interior - from resetting the thermostats to getting the mower ready.  You may have others on your list, but these are the main things to check on to make sure your home is ready for the upcoming seasons of both wet and warmer weather.
