Spring has sprung, which means spring cleaning should be in the near future for homeowners. Sure, it may not be the most fun task but you are sure to feel refreshed and ready for warmer weather once you de-clutter and clean your home from top to bottom. No idea where to begin? No problem! Our agency is here with 10 spring cleaning tips.
#1: Start by stripping all those beds! Out with flannel sheets and in with cotton.
#2: Clean curtains/blinds/shades – or better yet, replace wintery ones with light and airy ones.
#3: Have your carpets cleaned professionally or tackle this project yourself. If you have hardwood floors, do the same.
#4: Clean out the pantry to rid of expired items.
#5: Clean out all closets and drawers. Move all winter gear into the attic or basement. A reorganized closet will be a breath of fresh air, and may make choosing an outfit MUCH easier (especially for the ladies!)
#6: Create a different mood in your home or change the theme. The spring is a good time to go with a “lighter” mood and look. You can paint the walls if you want a major change, or simply change your throw pillows for a minor change.
#7: Clean that bathroom from top to bottom. Make it shine!
#8: Clean all the windows in your home to let the sun shine through – yes, even the harder to reach ones.
#9: Dust and/or replace light bulbs and light fixtures in your home.
#10: Last but not least, give your insurance agent a call to update your homeowners insurance policy for the new season. It is always a good idea to “check in!”
