Keeping your North Carolina Home in Tip-Top Shape

May is the perfect time to give your home the attention it needs after the winter months. From the exterior to the interior, there are several maintenance tasks you can perform to ensure your home is in tip-top shape Here is your checklist for home maintenance for May:


So that you can genuinely enjoy your wonderful yard when it starts to bloom and clean the dirt and filth from your windows during the winter.

Hard surfaces may become harmed by winter weather. Start the pressure washer after checking for any new or expanding cracks in your patios and walks and replacing any damaged pavers.

During the colder months, check for loose boards and broken gate locks to ensure the safety of kids and pets. These conditions can cause wood to warp.

Outdoor Fun

Before lighting the grill, check to see that it is clean, that the connections are secure, and that your propane tanks are full.


Do not wait till it is hot outside to check that your air conditioner is in good operating order. Typical AC service checks cost $75 to $200, but they are well worth the money.

Yard Work

Even if your lawn is now green, it may not be ready for the summer. The best time to fertilize your lawn is in May so that it has the nutrition it needs to prevent weed development throughout the summer. 

New mulch is like a fresh coat of paint for your outdoor area. Mulch should be applied 2 to 4 inches deep to all of your beds.

Bottom Line

By following the checklist provided, you can enjoy your outdoor space, have a functional air conditioner, and a well-maintained lawn throughout the summer. It's essential to take care of these tasks promptly, one at a time, to avoid a backlog of work. So roll up your sleeves, prioritize your to-do list, and tackle these tasks to keep your home in excellent condition. Which task are you most eager (or most dreading) to complete?
