News You Can Use…

Too many people don’t have the time or energy to do a full spring cleaning.

Thankfully, a quick and simple home refresh will go a long way toward making your home look new without breaking your back. And there are several ways to do this… easily.
For example, freshen up your entry simply by sweeping and mopping the front porch and adding a new welcome mat.

If you’re fortunate enough to have a back entrance or mudroom, it’s time to clear out all the remnants of winter. Consider adding extra storage with baskets, racks, or closet organizers to keep your newly tidied mudroom or entrance free. And while you are decluttering, why not tackle clutter catchalls like junk drawers and countertops? You’ll be able to find things again, and your space will feel brand new.

Can’t remember when you last cleaned your light fixtures? You’re not alone; most of us miss this step during regular dusting. Try this. When you have your windows professionally cleaned, hire them to clean your high light fixtures and have them do the high dusting while you clean the lower light fixtures.

By wiping down neglected lamps and sconces (and those ever so dusty light bulbs), you’ll lose the grime that’s accumulated over many months (year’s). Your living space will suddenly feel so much brighter and lighter you may decide to tackle your mirrors next. For best results, have your professional window cleaner do all of your home’s mirrors too (quick and very inexpensive). 

It shouldn’t cost the earth (or take forever) to change up your décor. New paint is great, but you can achieve a similar result with less work by applying one of today’s trendy large scale adhesive murals to a blank wall.

The result: an instant access space that’s easy to switch up when it’s time for a change. And don’t forget greenery. Add plants and flowers to your living space for that instant spring feeling.

What about the outdoor areas of your home? For best results, hire a professional exterior maintenance company to perform one or more of the following:

– House Wash
– Exterior Gutter Brightening
– Deck, Dock, Fence, Hardscapes Pressure -Washing
– Driveway and Sidewalk Pressure Wash

As you can see, spring cleaning no longer has to be intimidating. With these simple tweaks, your home will look and feel like spring before you know it.
