Spring means flowers blooming, cookouts, and enjoying every aspect of the home, which also means spring cleaning, inside and outside. Just as we prepared for the winter months, there are a number of ways we must also prepare our homes for the spring season.
Cleaning and Airing Out Your Home
In order to get your home ready for spring, it’s important to clean every surface of your home and open your windows to let the fresh air in. Now is a great time to do this before the pollen becomes too thick and finds its way into your home.
The winter can cause damage to your roof’s shingles, so it’s best to inspect them as it begins to warm up outside. Take a look at your roof from ground level and from a closer perspective if you are able. If you’re not able to get on your roof, it’s a good idea to call a professional to inspect your roof for any damage.
Checking AC Unit
It’s important to clean and service your AC unit before turning on the air conditioning for the warmer months. There are many steps to take in order to effectively clean your AC unit, so be sure to do research before cleaning it yourself. You can always call an AC Repair or Maintenance company near you if you’d like a professional’s touch.
After the winter, inspecting and cleaning your gutters is imperative. Things to look for when cleaning your gutters: bends, leaks, debris, breaks, or anything else out of the ordinary. You can always hire someone to clean your gutters if you’re unwilling or unable to take the time and necessary steps.
As spring sets in, cleaning both the inside and outside of your windows is a great way to get your home in tip top shape. Cleaning your windows will help improve the air quality inside your home. You should also inspect your windows for any breaks or needed maintenance while cleaning.
Sprucing Up Decor
Moving the furniture around is necessary when spring cleaning, but you may find you like the new placement. A great way to refresh your space and get your home ready for spring is to move the furniture around and find ways to brighten your rooms.
Replacing dark furniture with lighter colors, adding colorful pillows and rugs, or simply adding fresh flowers and plants to a room will make a huge difference. No matter your budget, there is always something you can do to freshen up your space.
Spring cleaning and decluttering is also an easy way to make any room feel bigger and less busy. Minimizing and organizing your home will easily transform your space.
