March Home Maintenance Tips for Your East Texas Home


Spring is coming and you can see the evidence all over the town. You can see the colors change in every street you go.

Here are some home maintenance tips:

1. ALL COILED UP —The days of running your air conditioning 24/7 are almost upon us. Clean your A/C coils now so you’re ready to relax when the heat hits. If you have no idea what a coil is, consider calling your favorite A/C company or check out a “how to” video online. Cleaning the coils will add years to the life of your unit and keep it running at peak performance.

2. FILTER CHANGE—Changing out your air filter in your HVAC system will help your system run more efficiently, save you money and help cut down on pesky airborne allergens. This is an easy one and you can do it during a TV commercial break.

3. SINKIN’ IT– Check cabinets under all sinks and faucets to make sure that there is not any leaking. Be sure to check the shut-off valves for leaks or drips while you’re down there. Hopefully you will find dry cabinets; but if you don’t, fix the leak and dry out the cabinet. Once the cabinet is dry, clean lightly with bleach to help kill any mold or mildew that may be growing.

4. LIGHT IT UP— Take a quick stroll around the exterior of your home to check all of the light fixtures. If the bulbs are burned out, get a ladder out and replace them all at the same time. If any have broken globes, replace those too. The days are about to get longer, but exterior lighting increases your security exponentially.

We met with several different realty groups and could tell immediately that Diane was a step above the rest – she was informative, very responsive, resourceful and a true professional. Diane came up with creative staging ideas and even pitched in to help. She was a true team player and really guided us through his process. I already referred her to my neighbor and they just closed on their deal.
