Your Spring Cleaning Checklist

It’s that time of year again, Florida! With the swing back toward the summer heat starting up, it’s time to get everything in order so you can enjoy the warm season. That means being prepared for full-time AC use in a lot of the state. When you don’t need your air conditioner for a few months, it’s easy to forget that it needs regular maintenance. Unfortunately, the time you’re most likely to regret forgetting that is right after you fire it up when the dust that’s settled in your ducts starts to circulate. It’s also a good time for other annual tasks, like cleaning your gutters.

Cleaning Up Inside

You’ll have a lot to do between the deep dusting, vacuuming, and carpet shampooing if you’re one of those people who needs a full seasonal deep clean to stay happy. If you’re not, consider following through with it anyway. Moving the furniture and cleaning every surface of the home once or twice a year helps maintain property values, keeps furnishings in good repair, and it helps reduce environmental contaminants like pet dander. While you’re cleaning the rooms, consider hiring duct cleaning services Sarasota offers a lot of them.

Cleaning Up Outside

The same touch everything, clean even stuff you can’t see approach should be applied outdoors. Don’t just settle for raking and sweeping to keep your garden and patio clear. Inspect the foundation or bring in someone who can, clean your gutters, and check out whether your siding and screens have taken any damage from the weather since last spring. That way, you will be able to get your home in the best shape possible before the sweltering weather hits, and you can spend your time relaxing when it’s hot.

If you don’t have a lot of time in your schedule, hiring professional cleaning services will not only spare your energy, it will give you the relief that comes from walking into a perfectly clean home. Don’t be afraid to outsource your spring cleaning so you can focus on what really matters.
