Spring is here!  And now is the perfect time to get outdoors and clean.  Here are a few tips to make sure you check of what is needed most!


Grab a ladder, secure it well and start to rid the gutters of any debris. Start by checking the downspouts and gutters and clear them of any leaves or sticks. Blocked gutters usually occur at the joints and elbows of the gutter. Remove the elbow for a more thorough cleaning. And don’t take any chances.  Call your local gutter company to have this job completed if you don’t feel safe doing it.


Your vinyl or aluminum fences do not require nearly any maintenance. However, they could use a quick rejuvenation by cleaning. A light scrubbing with a brush or sponge will do the trick. Then, spray it down with the hose or pressure washer. Make sure to use a low pressure setting so you do not damage your fence. If you still have some tough stains that remain, try using a Magic Eraser. If your fence requires more than just a spring sprucing, call Best Fence & Rail of Jacksonville for repairs or upgrades.

Trim all dead branches and overgrown plants and shrubs. Your yard may have weeds that will benefit from a spray with weed killer in it. It is also a good idea to spray some insect killer around the perimeter of your home to prevent pest issues as we approach warmer seasons. Lastly, lay down a fresh layer of mulch to refresh the look of your yard.
