Spring time means it’s time to get something new, declutter your wardrobe, wash and wipe your house, refresh and add few reviving touches. While getting down to redecoration and spring cleaning, don’t neglect the major maintenance challenges. By keeping an eye on the things like these annually, you’ll save yourself time and money.
1. Major things first.
First of all, do safety check: fire extinguisher, smoke and monoxide detectors should be checked even more frequently than only once a season, so why not to start this useful custom from this spring. If you are a homeowner, examine the roof and chimney, check the house exterior for an evidence of cracks, movements and anything that needs bigger repair.
2. Get your outdoor space ready.
Is your backyard or patio ready for warmer days? Clean out the garden, get rid of dry autumn leaves, get terrace ready for barbeques and parties till the dusk, check if your garden tools are well, and all the stuff for grill is clean.
3. Major cleaning is needed.
Check not only wardrobe, but the attic and basement, make sure mold and pests are under control. Less visible places need more attention and care. Don’t miss big spring cleaning – check the dressers, armoires, storage under your bed and get rid of the old stuff or give the second life to something you don’t need by giving it away.
Even if it all looks clean, and your guests remove their shoes before coming inside, believe us, your house will breathe fresh after you get it all cleaned. Even invisible dust is not an option for the spring time and your health.
5. Check your air conditioner.
Yes, it’s springtime when you have to check it, but not the first day of summer heat! Make sure the filters are changed and the AC is clean.
6. Get something fresh and new.
Let this be a small start of something beautiful. Whether a new dish set in light green color or the new turquoise throw, a tiny touch or splash of fresh color will change a lot in the home decor and in your spring mood.
