It’s officially spring – which means spring cleaning time! Often we think of cleaning the inside of our homes but neglect the outside.
Starting with your deck and patio, thoroughly inspect that it is safe and make any repairs. Give a thorough deep clean to remove all the dirt and mildew gathered from the winter weather. Your gutters are likely filled with winter leaves and need your attention. And now that the sun is shining you’ll really notice the grime on your windows!
An electric power washer can effectively help you clean quickly, especially with your home’s exterior, sidewalks and driveway. Check the instructions and settings of the washer as extreme pressure may damage certain materials. Prune overgrown shrubs, remove damaged branches and trim trees to promote new growth. Don’t forget your lawn maintenance.
Just like your interior closet, you may want to organize your garage. Assign and arrange areas in the garage: hobby items, tools, etc. Utilize boxes and shelves, and label. Throw or give away items you no longer need. Finally, scrub your grill in preparation for the first barbecue of the season. It’s time to enjoy the warmth of the outdoors in your fresh, clean environment!
