It’s finally springtime, and you know what that means… Spring cleaning! Yeah, I know, most of us dread this, but it is a necessary evil. Thankfully, there are some main jobs to focus on. Check out my list below to see how to prepare your home best for the new season:
1) Donate/Consign. I’m sure, just like me, you have a ton of extra clothes or knick knacks lying around that you don’t even use anymore. If you want to really clear out some extra space, go through all the stuff in your closet and separate it into three categories–TRASH, DONATE, and SELL. Then take a trip to your local Goodwill or consignment store and get rid of that stuff!
3) Clean out your gutters. Unless you live in a tree-less area, you probably have a ton of leaves and debris in the gutters along your home’s roof. Set aside a few hours to get up on the ladder and clean it out so that April showers can run smoothly down your gutters!
4) Deep clean your carpets. Isn’t the idea of a freshly cleaned carpet, windows open, and a spring breeze just wonderful? You can either hire professional cleaners or just rent a machine yourself at your local Home Depot or Lowe’s.
7) Weather stripping. With springtime rain coming through, it’s important to apply weather stripping to windows and doors in your house to prevent any kind of water or moisture from seeping through cracks.
