DEEP-CLEAN YOUR HOME'S CARPETS.
To maintain a new carpet's warranty, you may need to have it cleaned professionally every 12-18 months. You can do it yourself by renting a deep cleanser or buying a professional-style model designed for home use.
CLEAN UNDER FURNITURE & APPLIANCE.
Grab a partner and move your sofa and chairs, roll up area rugs, then vacuum the floors. Move your kitchen appliances away from the wall as much as you can.
GIVE YOUR HOME A SAFETY INSPECTION.
Spring is the perfect opportunity to check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. If you don't own a fire extinguisher purchase one. Learn how to use it and keep it in your kitchen.
GET YOUR HOME ORGANIZED.
Pick up and eliminate clutter in each room before you start cleaning. Equip yourself with a few designated containers when you are picking up in each room: a box for garage sale items, another for items to donate, and a garbage bag for items to toss. Put away the things you are keeping in their rightful places and rooms.
