Welcome spring to your home with these 3 tips

Spring tends to awaken the cleaning/home improvement spirit in each of us. We become more aware of the clutter and/or dirt that occupies our space. Before the busy summer months arrive, now’s the perfect time to do some clearing out, cleaning up, and generally making your home more attractive.

Clear Clutter

Look around each room and identify items that don’t belong. What haven’t you used in a year? Do you really need that small appliance that’s been taking up room in your cabinet? Do you have clothes that don’t fit anymore or are out of style? Determine what should be kept, donated, or trashed. Tip: don’t try to do your whole house at once.

Clean Deeply

This isn’t just a light dusting. This is wiping off the dirt and grit that’s been accumulating on windows, light fixtures, window coverings, upholstery, major and small appliances, base boards, counters, and bath fixtures. Shampooing/steam cleaning carpet and mopping floors should also be done.

Don’t Forget Your Outdoor Spaces

Give your home some curb appeal. Are weeds overtaking your garden beds? Wouldn’t your front yard look beautiful with some flowers? Are your concrete patio/sidewalks and/or siding covered with mildew? Do you have any loose steps or boards surrounding your home? Spring’s a great time to get your outdoor space in good shape. Do-it-yourself or hire professionals.
