Time for some Spring Cleaning and Maintenance

  • Property inspections have started, and we have some tips for homeowners to consider:
  • We’ve had a very rainy summer and fall – many roofs show need for cleaning/ power washing.
  • Exterior and siding: power wash siding, porches, walkways and brick walls that show signs of mildew or dirt. Clean out the gutters.
  • Fences: Please make any repairs to fences as necessary. Leaning fences or missing boards should be addressed.
  • Painted surfaces: Inspect walls, window frames, door frames and other trim for wood rot and damaged paint. Repair/replace and paint trim to prevent further deterioration.
  • Remove dead and dried up plants and weeds and trim lawn or plants as appropriate.
  • Garden supplies, ladders and other miscellaneous items should be stored out of view. Car ports and side of garage are not allowed for storage.
  • Please remember that the trash and recycling containers should be placed at curbside no earlier than 7pm the evening before pickup and removed no later than 8 am on the day following pickup.
  • Important: if you receive a violation notice, please correct the violations by the requested deadline to avoid fines.

Please pickup your pet’s waste.

  • We all love our furry friends but dealing with pet waste that has been left behind is not fun for anyone. Please be sure to pick up after your pets and properly dispose of your pet waste bags. Your neighbors will thank you!
  • Leaving pet waste where it drops is illegal in the City of Rockville. Violators may be subject to fines up to $1000 for each offence.  Click the following link for additional information: https://www.rockvillemd.gov/DocumentCenter/View/543/pet-waste
