6 Ways to Prepare Your Home for Spring
The winter is almost over! This means that warmer weather, outdoor activities, and cookouts are just around the corner. With the changing of seasons there are a lot of things that can be done to prepare your house for spring. Taking these steps help to make transitioning of seasons smoother and ensure that your home is ready for it.
- Thoroughly Clean and Air Out Your Home
When the weather starts to get a little warmer in the early stages of spring is the best time to clean out and air out your home. Opening the windows and letting the fresh air in at the beginning of spring is the better because the pollen has not gotten thick in the air and will not get into your home. Cleaning the inside of the house is very important too. Cleaning the rugs, furniture, curtains, baseboards, outlets, and faucets will help to keep your home clean and ready for the spring.
- Clean your gutters
Inspect your gutters and clean any debris that may have gathered in them over the winter. While cleaning your gutters look to make sure they are not bent, leaking, or broken in any way. Gutters are a very important part of your home and should be thoroughly inspected. If you are unsure about this hiring a professional to inspect and clean your gutters is a great option.
- Inspect shingles
Winter can take a toll on your roof and specifically your shingles. Take a look at your roof from ground level to spot any serious issues. Then take a closer look to be certain there are no damaged shingles or other small but potentially serious damages. Hiring a professional to come inspect or repair your roof is always a good option as well.
- Check AC unit
As the weather starts to get warmer air conditioning is very essential. Cleaning and servicing the unit will help to ensure that your air conditioning is running in tip top shape for the upcoming warm weather. Make sure that the coils are clean and that the unit is ready to be used without any potential problems. If there is any repair that needs to be done this is the best time to find out and fix it.
- Clean the windows
Windows can get very dirty on both inside and the outside during the winter. Take some time to wash windows from both inside and out. This will help to keep the air in your home fresh as well as clean. While cleaning inspect your windows for any maintenance or repairs that may need to take place.
- Change home Décor
A very simple way to get ready for the spring is to change the décor. Replacing darker colored rugs, throw pillows, or furniture helps to brighten up the room. Adding greenery to the room also helps to lighten up the room and get the feel of spring. A cheaper way to change the décor is to simply move the furniture around. This will also help to clean more thoroughly. Changing up your décor will also help you to get a head start on your spring cleaning by getting rid of any old pieces of furniture or decorations that are damaged or simply unwanted.
