While many people look forward to spring for its warm weather, bright colors, and fresh breezes, others see it as a chance to clear away the dust and cobwebs that accumulate over the long winter. Though not everyone is gung-ho about spring cleaning, it’s essential for a clean, well-maintained home. When you sit down to make your spring cleaning checklist, don’t neglect to address the exterior of your home as well.
- Clear out the gutters. While your gutters should have been cleaned out in the fall, it’s a good idea to check them again in the spring and clear out any stray leaves and tree debris blown down by winter storms. Spring is also an excellent time for a little home exterior remodeling; in particular, installing a Gutter Topper® gutter protection system from Callen Construction. Available in a wide array of colors to coordinate with your roof and gutters, Gutter Topper will keep leaves and debris out of your gutters year-round, so you’ll have one less thing on your spring cleaning list to take care of next year.
- Wash the windows. You’d be surprised by how much dirt and grime can accumulate on your windows in six months’ time. Washing the exterior of your windows until they shine will allow you a clear view of the beautiful colors of spring, even when you’re stuck inside cleaning.
- Clean and rake. Walk around your yard and look for any trash that may have been dropped or blown onto the lawn, making sure to check that nothing has snagged on your trees or under the bushes. Then, lightly rake your lawn to gather up any remaining fall leaves, remove dead grass, and make way for the dormant grass blades that will soon be pushing their way to the surface.
- Weed and prune. Make life easier for yourself by getting a jump on obnoxious weeds. Weeds are much easier to remove when they’re small with shallow roots, and the ground is still moist from spring rains. Consider laying down weed control fabric in your garden and around flower beds as well to help keep the weeds away permanently.
