Happy Almost Spring Time!

Spring Time, Clean Time!

I love to spring clean. It feels good and is very rewarding. Getting rid of stuff and cleaning your home helps shake off the winter. Below are some of my favorite tips.

 

Tracy’s Tips:

  • Oh that Kitchen, yes that kitchen.  Clean out those cabinets and pantries already 😉 get rid of expired food and old spices. Your life will be better. I promise.

  • Replace the furnace filter. It may be especially filthy after the winter months.

  • Inspect the roof for water damage. It’s also a good idea to check any fences, carports and sheds. Tip: Check the south end of your roof first; it is the first to show wear.

  • Test the batteries in all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Super important!

  • Clear the gutters of any buildup to allow for proper functioning.

  • Start the grass revival cycle by aerating, thatching and fertilizing, this is one for those who really, really love green grass. It is a lot of work but worth it. Especially for those bare feet when it warms up.

  • Clean the windows and screens. My favorite cleaner for windows is white wine vinegar and water solution organic awesomeness.

  • Repair any holes in the screens or replace them as needed.

  • Inspect and repair siding and peeling paint. Strip peeling paint and replace it with a new coat.

  • Check the basement for water damage. Pay attention to musty smells, water stain and damp surfaces.

Happy cleaning!
