Spring Cleaning

Spring Has Sprung – Is Your Home Ready?

Here is a quick list of household tasks that should be done now so that you can concentrate on what’s important over the next few months when the great weather arrives:

  • Replace Air Filters
    • This simple task with keep the air within your home cleaner and allow your heating and air conditioning systems to run more efficiently
  • Reseal Windows
    • Over time the sealing on your windows can decay, crack and fall off.  Take time to reseal any windows that need it with caulk.
  • Spring-Clean your HVAC Unit
    • Clear your outside HVAC unit of any branches, leaves and other debris.  Keeping your unit clear will help keep it in working condition.
  • Fix any Leaks
    • Small leaks between toilet bowl and tank can add up to big costs. 
  • Clean Showerhead and Household Faucets
    • This may sound down and dirty but should be done.  Take a small plastic bag and fill it halfway with vinegar.  Place over showerhead (or faucet) and secure with rubber band.  Let sit for 1-2 hours, remove bag and give the area a quick scrub.  All of the buildup should come right and you’ll be left with a sparkling finish!
  • Relabel your Breakers
    • Labeling the Breaker controls in your panel can be very helpful, especially if one trips. 
  • Test your GFCI’s
    • GFCI outlets serve a very important purpose of detecting when an electrical current is running through something that it shouldn’t be, such as water, and shutting off the current when needed. 
  • Feed your Fridge a Dollar
    • The seal on your fridge is important, it keeps your food cool and fresh while helping your fridge run more efficiently.  To test the seal, take a dollar bill and close it between the fridge door and yourself.  Try to remove the dollar.  It should not come out easily – there should be tension.  If the dollar does slide out easily, the seal is compromised or the fridge may be misaligned.
  • Filter your Drains
    • Adding a filter to open bathtub drains is quick, easy.
  • Change Batteries!
