While nature undergoes its seasonal transformation, your mobile home is begging for a little transformation of its own. Give your mobile or manufactured home a little TLC to ensure it is ready for the seasons ahead! Let General Supply Inc. guide you through essential mobile home maintenance tasks that will help you get your home cleaned up and in top shape for spring! 

Mobile Home Exterior Inspection and Cleaning

Start tackling your spring maintenance task list by giving the exterior of your mobile or manufactured home a thorough inspection. Check for any signs of damage, such as loose or missing siding, damaged skirting, or issues with the roof. Clean the exterior surfaces to remove dirt, grime, and any debris that may have accumulated during the winter months. This not only enhances the visual appeal of your home but also helps prevent potential long-term damage.

Mobile Home Roof and Gutter Maintenance

Inspecting your mobile home’s roof is a crucial step in preventing leaks and water damage. Be sure to check for loose or damaged shingles, and repair or replace them as needed. Clear out any debris from gutters and downspouts to ensure proper drainage. Proper drainage is essential for preventing water buildup, which can lead to roof leaks and other structural issues.

Mobile Home Window and Door Inspection

Your mobile or manufactured home’s insulation, airflow and air quality can be affected by your windows and doors. Check for any gaps or drafts around windows and doors and seal them, if necessary. Consider lubricating hinges and locks to ensure smooth operation. Clean, inspect and repair your window screens to allow for optimal airflow and natural light. 

Mobile Home HVAC System Maintenance

As temperatures rise, your mobile or manufactured home’s HVAC system may need some attention. Be sure to change the air filters to improve indoor air quality and ensure efficient operation. If you use a window air conditioner, be sure to clean the filters and coils. Schedule a professional HVAC inspection with General Supply Inc. to identify and address any potential issues before they arise. 

Mobile Home Plumbing Inspection

Leaks and water damage can often spawn from your mobile or manufactured home’s plumbing system. To spot any leaks or water damage, check for any water stains, dripping faucets, sagging areas or leaky pipes. Check your seals and gaskets for wear and tear and if needed, replace them to avoid leakage. Ensure your water heater is functioning correctly and flush out sediment, if necessary. Be sure to check for leaks in your bathrooms, kitchen or any other room that holds plumbing. 

Mobile Home Pest Control Management

Spring brings with it a variety of pests and it’s essential to take preventive measures to help avoid any damages they may cause to your mobile home. Inspect the perimeter of your mobile or manufactured home’s exterior for any openings that may serve as entry points for pests. Seal cracks and crevices, and consider applying pest control treatments around the exterior of your home. Inside, check for signs of damage caused by these pests and address any issues, promptly.

Mobile Home Seasonal Maintenance

Spring is the perfect time to get out, enjoy the sunshine and show your mobile home some extra love by tackling these essential maintenance tasks. By investing a little time and effort now, you can ensure that your home remains comfortable, efficient, and in peak condition to weather the changing seasons. With a well-maintained mobile or manufactured home, you can enjoy the beauty of spring with peace of mind, knowing that your home is ready for whatever this season brings.
