Could Your Mailbox Use a Spring Cleaning?

It's spring! It's time to spruce things up around the house and yard, to put winter behind us and make everything look its best.

Don't forget to take a look at your mailbox. Many times, the mailbox is the first thing people see when they come to visit you. An attractive, well-maintained mailbox adds to the beauty of your home and our community, and protects your mail from the elements.

Here are some spring cleaning tips for you and your mailbox:

If your mailbox is mounted on a pole or post, check its stability and make sure it is properly anchored.

Your mailbox identifies your address, not only for the letter carrier but for the police, the fire department, emergency workers and other service providers. Make sure your address appears on both sides of the mailbox, so people who need to find you can do so, and so can your mail.

Check the door and its hinges. Make sure it closes properly to keep your mail in and the wind and rain out.

Do you see any sharp edges or nails sticking out? Protect your own hands as well as those of your letter carrier, by filing them off. Also sand and repaint or replace your mailbox if it's rusty — you don't want to have to get a tetanus shot, and neither does your letter carrier.

The Postal Service™ requires approved traditional or contemporary curbside mailboxes whenever a mailbox is installed or replaced. You can find a wide selection of mailboxes at SearchLighting.Com.
