atlanta luxury home maintenance tipsRecently, Traton Homes contributed tips to Atlanta Home Improvement Magazine’s “Spring Spruce-Up” article to let Atlanta residents know what they need to do to prep their homes for spring. Even if you live in one of Traton’s Atlanta luxury homes, there are still several great tips you can take away to keep your home looking as new as the day you closed.

Start off your spring maintenance routine by inspecting the outside of your home.

  • Clean gutters and remove leaves from rooftops, to prevent wet leaves from causing rot. Be sure to wash those window screens that have been exposed to the elements.
  • Inspect the screens for holes or gaps that could let insects in – crucial during the warm summer months when mosquitoes seem to be everywhere.
  • Prune shrubs away from the exterior of the home, and give your home and driveway a good pressure wash to return the facade to its original glory.

When the weekend is rainy, it’s a good time to work on some interior maintenance projects. Read More→
