Home Tips: Getting Ready for Spring Cleaning!

Ahhh, spring is getting closer and closer! For many homeowners, this means it’s also getting closer to the time where we bust out the mops, brooms, and dust rags to really get our homes to shine.

While you may already have a checklist of your own to accomplish for your spring cleaning this year, here are a few cleaning and maintenance tips from diynetwork.com to keep your home in the best condition possible – especially for those who may be getting ready to sell. Take a look at these ideas that you maybe hadn’t thought of yet.

Scrub Walls, Baseboards and Outlets

Have you ever noticed how dusty your walls, baseboards, and outlets can become? While this isn’t exactly a “fun” task to undertake, it’s one that will make you feel really accomplished after you look around and see how everything just looks a little bit more whiter, brighter, and shinier.

Clean Your Faucets and Showerheads

This is one of those jobs that most people don’t think about doing each year, but you should add it to your list for good reason. Not only does it visually clean up your kitchen and bath, it also ensures that your faucets and showerheads are in top-notch condition. Just unscrew the faucet aerators, sink sprayers, and showerheads then soak in a solution of equal parts water and vinegar. After soaking for an hour, simply rinse with warm water.

Clean Out the Dryer Vent

As an overly dirty dryer vent can cause a fire, cleaning out your dryer vent is home safety 101. To clean the vent, disconnect it from the back of the dryer and use a dryer vent brush to clean. Then remove the dryer vent cover from the outside of your house and clean with the vent brush as well.

 

Check Foundation Vents

Did you know that a home with a crawl space has vents along the foundation walls? These vents provide air circulation, preventing excess moisture and mold growth. In the spring it is wise to clean any debris out of the way (twigs, leaves, etc.) and then clean the vent itself either by hand or with a shop vacuum. If any of the screens are damaged, be sure to replace them to prevent small critters from entering.

Test Smoke Alarms

For the safety of you and your family, spring is also a good time to test all of your smoke alarms and CO detectors and replace the batteries. This task is cheap and taking just a few minutes to do so could save lives.

 

As you get started on your spring cleaning, add these simple tasks to your list this year!
