Spruce Up Your Home This Spring

Spring has arrived, and it is once again that time of year when we clean and repair items around the house that will leave us ready for the upcoming summer months. Whether you are tackling the indoor areas, fixing up the outdoor space, or checking the house for any needed repairs, the following information will keep you from forgetting any key areas.

The Interior

Along with all of your normal weekly chores you need to deep clean. Move all furniture to clean and vacuum underneath. Completely clean windows by washing screen and hosing out crevices with a pressure washer. The first warm days when you can open the house up is the perfect time to clean the oven, and don’t forget to declutter as you work your way through the house.

The Exterior

Spring is when you want to clear the flower beds of any leaves and debris left over from the long winter months. Add new mulch, and trim shrubs to a desirable size and shape. Pull outdoor furniture out of storage and wash each piece thoroughly. Pressure wash siding to remove dirt and grime, and scrub patios decks, drives, and walkways for a finished look.

The House

Spring is the perfect time to walk around your home and take note of any necessary repairs. Clean gutters and drain spouts. Replace any that are old and broken. If you have loose or missing shingles, have them replaced as well. You’ll also want to replace any rotting wood, and consider waterproofing services such as the ones offered by A-Proseal to ensure you won’t have any leaks to deal with this summer.

Once you have the interior of your home sparkling clean, the outdoors ready for summer fun, and know that all of the home repairs have been handled, you can sit back and relax. You can enjoy your summer days from that first warm afternoon all the way up until the leaves fall without worrying about a lengthy to-do list.
