Spring Break is quickly approaching and if you’re not going out of town, might as well use that time to do some housing projects. The weather is warming up and it’s time to spruce up your home and get ready for summer.
1. Outside Washing
Winter can be hard on the exterior of your home so take the time in the beautiful weather to power wash your home. Not only does it make it look like it has a new paint job, but it can also blast away any potentially damaging mold and mildew. If you don’t own a power washer, you can rent one from your local home improvement store for fairly cheap. While you’re out there, go ahead and take care of your siding, deck, and driveway as well. It will make such a difference in your curb appeal and you’ll feel like your house is sparkly and new.
2. AC Tune Up
In Las Vegas, having a working air conditioner is a must. At some point we have all learned the hard way that it is important to keep up on your ac unit. Schedule a tune up now before it gets to be the busy season and you may not be able to get an appointment as quickly. You definitely do not want to have your air conditioner go out when it’s 110 degrees outside!
3. Clean Your Windows
Nothing is better than having that beautiful natural light coming through your windows! But no one likes to look out and see dirt, streaks, and spots. Take the time to wash the interior and exterior of your windows. Try a squeegee instead of paper towels to avoid the little lint spots let behind. There are many companies that will even do it for you, if you have a lot of high windows. Clean windows make everything look sharp and will overall make the house look better, inside and out.
4. Fridge Time!
Dust and grime on your refrigerator’s coils causes the machines to use more energy to cool. Cleaning coils is really easy with your vacuum’s hose attachment. Pull out the drawers and make sure there’s no spills or spoils in there. Wipe up anything that’s been sticky and lingering underneath for longer than we want to admit.
This is an ongoing battle for me, but during Spring Break I can get my kids to help out. Focus on one or two spots, fill up trash bags or boxes, and donate them or simply throw them out. An organized space can make all the difference. When the whole family pitches in and gets a say in what stays and what goes, it can change their mindset to making everything more organized and hopefully keep the trend going of decluttering on a regular basis.
