As the weather warms and the days get longer, now is a fantastic time to tackle that Spring cleaning list you’ve been meaning to get to. Now into our first official week of Spring, you may be wondering just how much “cleaning” is necessary to keep your home in tip-top shape! Read further for Spring cleaning tips that may not be top-of-mind.
Clean and Service Your Air Conditioning Unit
Have you ever come home one day to find that your home is scorching hot and your air conditioner is out of service? Nothing is worse than trying to sleep at night with no A/C! Not only is it important to service your air conditioning unit regularly to avoid a breakdown, but it also helps cut down on your monthly energy bill. Give Joe at Best Plumbing and Heating a call to make sure your home stays nice and cool all Spring and Summer long.
De-Winterize Your Sprinklers
Problems can quickly arise when water gets trapped inside your sprinkler system during the winter months. It’s equally important to make sure your irrigation system is ready to keep that beautiful lawn ready for all of your Spring and Summer barbecues and social events! Before starting to water your green areas, it’s recommended that you de-winterize your sprinkler system. Cory at Cory’s Lawn Service is one of our go-to guys for keeping our yards looking pristine.
Change Your Air Filters
To maintain optimal air quality and ensure that your heating and air system is running smoothly, it is imperative to change your air filters every three to six months. With the unfortunate increase in smokey days due to wildfires, this task becomes even more important with the addition of higher amounts of contaminants in the air that can clog your filters. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy breathing fresh, clean air? If you don’t want to go through the hassle of doing it yourself, give Mark at Choice Heating and Air a ring to get your filters replaced.
Clean Your Gutters
Tired of watching water and debris come cascading down off of your roof? It’s likely due to winter gunk clogging your gutters. That’s why we recommend that you clean your gutters twice a year (once in Spring and once in Fall). If you fear heights and ladders as much as we do, Dave Dunn at Dunnright Gutters will make sure your gutters are good to go for the warmer days to come.
Wash Exterior Windows
As we all know, pets, children, and day-to-day life can take their toll on the appearance of our interior windows. Just as much (if not more), however, is the damage done to our exterior windows during the winter months. It's important to regularly keep your exterior windows in tip-top shape in order to avoid windows that appear old and foggy. We recommend Dave’s Window Cleaning to make your exterior windows look good as new again.
