Now that spring is quickly approaching, there are many tasks on our spring home to do list. With the weather getting warmer and longer days, the spring is the perfect time to refresh and revamp your home (on the inside and outside). Here are some of our tips:
1. Clean the garage
Take some time to organize and clean out your garage. Over the winter months, clutter can build up in there and now is a great time to get organized. We recommend recycling and donating items you don't need.
2. Clean windows and doors
During the cold weather months, lots of dirt and other substances build up a film on your windows and doors (especially the glass). We recommend cleaning glass when it's cloudy to prevent streaking.
3. Air quality control
This is a great time to clean air filters in your home. It's recommended that the filters in your heating and cooling systems are cleaned every three months. Since the weather will be getting warmer and warmer, now is a good time to have your air conditioning system evaluated and serviced if necessary.
4. Tile cleanse
If you have tile in your home, take some time to seal the grout lines. You can clean grout with a combination of white vinegar and baking soda. Once grout lines are cleaned, use a sealer. Be sure to follow the instructions on the container.
5. Clean off the roof
Now is a good time to clean your roof, by sweeping leaves, branches, and dirt off before it gets too hot outside.
6. Outdoor furniture
If you keep furniture outdoors on a deck or patio, you are going to want to clean it before using it again. Be sure to wash pillows, cushions, and any removable covers you have. Give the furniture itself a thorough scrub before using it.
7. Screens and windows
As the weather continues to get warmer, change glass doors to screens. You will also want to change storm windows out from the cold winter months.
