Costa Mesa homeowners who’ve been finishing up cleaning the house may think they are, as the British say, “done and done” with 2021’s spring cleaning chores—but self-congratulations may have to be postponed for the moment. A living room cleared of the winter’s debris and bedrooms aired out and dusted do deserve the feelings of accomplishment they inspire—except for one last detail.

Costa Mesa homes may have sailed through the winter without any notable exterior damage, but before calling it quits, it’s advisable to step outside your newly tidied Costa Mesa home to conduct spring cleaning’s auxiliary chore: the exterior inspection. It actually may be the most significant part of a homeowner’s annual springtime cleanup campaign: spotting a budding maintenance problem at its first appearance can save a lot of angst and expense later on.

Here is a checklist of eight areas that will spur an exterior inspection comprehensive enough to declare a legitimate ‘done and done’ for Spring Cleaning, 2021:

  1. Roof
  2. Garage door
  3. Front porch
  4. Foundation
  5. Gutters & downspouts
  6. Deck & patio
  7. Driveway & walkways
  8. Yard pest activity

What to do when the condition of any checklist item is other than what you expected to find can be simple or involved (in fact, volumes of information exist for what to do about each). But in every case, if something is even slightly out of kilter, the best time to fix it is, universally, now!

When it comes time to sell your own Costa Mesa property, if you’ve stayed on top of these exterior maintenance areas, preparing your place for showings should be a snap! We hope you’ll call us as that time nears.
