Start with exteriors
If snow is completely gone, then it is a good time to visually check everywhere for cracks outside, and also check your rain gutters. Make sure nothing gets to your foundation. Scan visible areas of the roof; see if there are any concerns you may want to have checked. Also look for missing shingles.
Move on to windows and doors
Some materials used for your windows and doors expand and contract during extreme weather. Check the caulking around windows and door seals, and also, take the time to clean your windows inside and out, pretty soon you will be opening these to enjoy the nice weather.
The key check for your interior
Your HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) is the key system in your home. This system provides you with indoor air quality, and Spring and Fall are the best times to ensure it is properly functioning and ready for weather changes, being Summer and Winter. Have an expert service your HVAC and replace the filters.
Also, don’t forget little check ups such as inspecting your outside faucets for freeze damage caused by snow, get your garden hose ready and make sure it has no cracks. Plan out your spring cleaning and remember to include organizing your pantry, closets and having your carpets perfectly ready.
