Spring cleaning can be a great way to get rid of clutter, which will make your home look great and feel more comfortable for when friends come over during springtime!

Clean Your Windows

Cleaning your windows is an easy way to make your home look fresh in spring. You can use a squeegee, microfiber cloth and window cleaner to get rid of dirt and smudges. Or mix vinegar with water for a homemade solution that will cut through grease on glass surfaces without leaving streaks behind. If you have painted window frames or sills, use a razor blade to scrape off any dried paint before cleaning them with soap and water (or one of the other options listed above). Or, better yet, hire a professional such as Elliott Window Cleaning, to do the job right!stains and leaks in a house

Check for Leaks and Stains

Now is the time to check for leaks in the roof, basement, and plumbing. Look for stains on the carpet, walls, and ceiling. Check furniture for discoloration or damage caused by water damage.

  • Change the furnace filter at least once a month.
  • How often you should change the filter depends on how many people live in your home and what type of air conditioner or furnace you have.
  • The more people who live in your house, the more often you need to change it! If there are two people living in an average-sized home, then we’d recommend changing them every three months or so (but don’t worry if it’s been longer than this).

Get Your Carpets CleanedFunny dog and its dirty trails on carpet

If your carpets are looking dingy or smelly, call a professional carpet cleaner. A good cleaning will remove stains and freshen up your home before you have guests over for the holidays. If selling your home is on your agenda for spring, it’s also important to get the carpets cleaned before listing it so that potential buyers have no reason not to purchase it immediately upon seeing how clean everything looks!
