Get Your Home Ready for Spring

Spring is only a few weeks away! Springtime brings warmer weather, longer days, and the perfect opportunity to get your home in tip-top shape! Spring cleaning can sound like a daunting task but with the right plan, it doesn’t have to be. We’ll outline a few easy steps to help you get your home ready for spring and help prevent any maintenance issues!

Check Your Smoke Alarms & Dryer Vent
Safety comes first! Before you tackle anything else, check all of your smoke alarms to ensure they are working properly. While you’re at it, take a look around your dryer vent to make sure there is no lint buildup that could become a fire hazard. Cleaning out your dryer vent is also an easy way to keep your energy bills low and reduce drying times for clothes.

Replace Filters & Check Pipes for Leaks
It may not be fun or glamorous, but replacing air filters is essential for keeping your home healthy. Air filters trap dirt and dust particles from circulating through your air system and should be replaced every 3-6 months depending on the type of filter you use. Additionally, check any exposed pipes in your home for any signs of leaks or corrosion—especially if you live in a colder climate where temperatures can drop below freezing during winter months.

Wash Windows & Declutter
Once you’ve taken care of the safety basics around the house, it’s time to start focusing on the aesthetic elements of spring cleaning. Washing both the interior and exterior windows will help bring in more natural light—which is especially important now that days are getting longer! You can also declutter by donating or selling items that are no longer used or needed in order to keep surfaces free from clutter which can make a room feel bigger and brighter. Bonus tip: self-storage is an excellent option if you want to keep certain items without taking up space inside your home!

Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be overwhelming; with these steps, it can even be enjoyable! Remember that safety comes first; checking smoke alarms and vents should always be at the top of the list when preparing for spring cleaning. From there, focus on replacing filters and checking pipes for leaks before tackling tasks like window washing and decluttering so that when warm weather fully arrives you can enjoy it stress-free from inside a clean and organized home! Happy Spring Cleaning!
