5 Steps to Prepare the Inside of Your Home for Spring

We’ve reached the time of year where many are anxious for Spring to begin! Here are a few simple tips to start preparing for Spring that will hopefully make you feel that the end of the cold months is near.

Wash Windows and Freshen up Window Treatments

Windows are at the forefront of winter weather. As such, they could use a cleaning on both the inside and outside. Another simple way to freshen up your home is to wash or dry clean your current draperies, or take it one step further and swap heavy draperies for light and airy sheers

Clear Your Gutters

Dirty gutters are both an eyesore and a liability. Clear gutters using a ladder, a small hand rake, and a hose, to prevent flooding during spring rains.

Repair Roof Damage

After a long winter, it is always best to examine your roof to assess any ware or damage that may have happened during the colder months. It is also best to clear away any branches, leaves, moss, and other debris.  

We tend to accumulate a lot over the colder months, which we may not realize. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, start with a room-by-room plan to break things down. Not everything has to be done in one day or weekend!

Surprised by the number of things you are getting rid of? Consider a bin rental to make your life easier. Simply call to have one delivered, load it up and call for the pick-up. This will save you lots of time you would have spent making multiple trips to a transfer station.

Refresh Textiles

This is a simple way to brighten-up your home after a long and dark winter. Fresh and bright colours that compliment your existing colour scheme will bring a new life to your home. If replacing duvet covers, throws and/or pillows isn’t in your budget, opt instead for a deep clean of existing textiles. Simply removing any dust or residue will freshen up a space significantly.
