During the chilly winter months, you may have closed all the doors and windows and stayed indoors. However, the spring season is here, and now it is the ideal time to open the doors and windows, and allow the outside warm air to embrace the interiors and take the place of the potential and stuffy stale smells.
Clean and open windows – The first part of your house that needs to be given utmost attention is the windows. Clean your windows and remove the dust and grime that must have settled during the winter months. Open the windows and allow the sunshine and fresh warm air to travel inside. This shall get rid of the stuffy and stale air and breathe in new life to your home.
Upholstery cleaning – Vacuum all your upholsteries and draperies to get rid of pollen, dander and dust accumulated during the long winter season. Alternatively, if you have heavy patterned silk curtains and draperies hanging, you may replace them with fresh cotton draperies.
Ceiling Fans – as ceiling fans are not used during the winter season, dust and grime are known to collect over them. Clean them properly and remove the dust so that it does not circulate in the room when the fan is switched on.
Exterior cleaning – Once your interiors are clean, you need to give attention to the exteriors as it was also a subject to the harsh charges of the winter season. Examine the exteriors thoroughly to ascertain whether there has been weather stripping or not. Replace the weather stripping as well as the cracking and old caulk. Investigate the roof for missing or broken tiles and shingles. At the same time, clean out the down spouts and gutters.
Check the interior system – spring is the right season to review the interior systems of your home such as the air conditioning, ventilation, and heating system.
