Spring is the season of re-birth and renewal. It’s when the flowerbeds come alive with explosions of colors and when your vegetable garden starts showing the early promise of future harvests. Understandably, spring is also the time of year when homeowners start sprucing up their properties, both inside and out.
If you want to ensure your home is decked out in its Easter-best this spring, then here is a to-do checklist that will have your home looking and feeling fresh, clean, and organized.
Wash Your Home’s Siding
After enduring winter’s dull and damp days, your home’s siding will be in need of a cleaning. Using a pressure washer will make short work of any grime, moss, or road salt that may have accumulated on your siding over winter.
Tune Up the Lawnmower
You know the deal – as soon as spring arrives, your lawn will start growing out of control. Therefore, you need to be prepared! Take the time to tune up your lawnmower now so it will start on the first pull when your lawn needs its first cut of the year.
Set Up and Clean Your Lawn Furniture
After being in storage all winter long, your outdoor lawn furniture is probably going to need freshened up. Give it a thorough cleaning and set it up so you’re prepared should friends or family stop over on a beautiful spring weekend.
Check Your Fence for Damage
Winter’s erratic weather can cause damage to your fence that you probably won’t even notice until you get out in your yard and take a look around. If you find something wrong, take the time to fix it now so it doesn’t turn into a more expensive repair later in summer.
Clean Your Windows
If you really want to enjoy the beauty of spring, then you will want to make sure you clean your windows inside and out. More natural light will come into your home and you’ll just feel better being able to see clearly out your windows.
Get Your HVAC Serviced
Spring is the perfect time of year to schedule your annual HVAC service call. The technician will optimize your system so it’s all ready to go once the warmer weather starts rolling in.
Let’s face it; we all have things that we don’t really need. Because spring is the season of renewal, now is the perfect time to gather up all of those things and donate them to charity. Or, plan a yard sale event for your neighborhood and turn some of that stuff into cash.
Refresh Your Mantle
If you have a fireplace with a mantel, then now is the time to take everything off of it and give it a good wiping down. Get rid of winter’s decorations and adorn it with colorful springtime elements.
Make a Commitment to Go Green
Why not extend your Earth Day commitment to all year round? Start making a concentrated effort to turn your home into a more eco-friendly environment. For instance, start shopping at your local farmer’s market instead of the super market; turn off the lights when leaving a room; start using green cleaning products, etc.
Change Your Wall Decorations
If you love art, then the changing of the seasons is the ideal time to rotate your collection. Take everything down off of the walls, dust them off, and replace them with something completely different for a fresh, new feel.
Replace Your Bedding and Towels
Few things are as comforting as light and clean bedding that were hung outside to dry. Now is the time to put away your dark and holiday-themed bedding and towels and replace them with lighter or more colorful versions that are more in tune with the season.
