Spring cleaning is a chance to refresh your entire home and give it a clean slate for the upcoming warm months. From untouched nooks and crannies to washing bedroom windows, your house will feel almost brand new with its new shine and fresh smell.
Let’s take spring cleaning back to basics today and get into how you can give your home an easy clean that could result in saving you money on your bills this year. For a more in-depth spring prep list, check out our Ultimate Guide to Preparing Your Home For Spring.
Refresh Your Home
Here are some easy ways you can completely revive your home this season.
Wash Your Windows
Often neglected until they become a huge mess, windows are a great place to begin your spring cleaning. A dust and dirt-free window will eliminate allergens and other harmful airborne particles from entering your home, while in return will lessen allergy symptoms and irritated respiratory systems.
While washing your windows, be on the lookout for anything that may be causing an issue. Cracked or improperly sealed windows can allow for air to enter and escape from your home, driving up poor indoor air quality as well as your energy costs.
Pro tip: Your screens are a major carrier of dust. While cleaning your windows, take the time to wipe down or even replace your screens.
As with washing your windows, cleaning other elements within your home can also help lessen the amount of dust and dirt in your air. Take time to fully dust and clean:
- Cupboards and cabinets
- Vent covers
- Ceiling Fans
Your nose will thank you!
Now for one of the best ways to save on energy bills: setting up your HVAC for a good cooling season. For maximum efficiency, your HVAC needs a clean, unobstructed air flow.
Air filters are used to keep those nasty dust particles from recirculating throughout your home. These filters should be changed at least once every three months, and more often if you have asthma or allergies. Pets can also be a reason to exchange your air filters more frequently.
Your outdoor unit should also be clear of leaves, sticks, and dirt that have accumulated over the winter months to ensure air is flowing smoothly.
Finally, schedule a maintenance appointment with a Quality Degree, Inc. technician! They will perform a thorough inspection of your unit to ensure things are running as best as they can.
