Happy Spring!

Spring Cleaning tips, Mariners schedule and fun upcoming April events! 

I love to spring clean. It feels good and is very rewarding. Clearing out unwanted items and a few tips to get your home ready for the warmer weather helps shake off the winter.

 

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!
