Spring Cleaning in the Mountains

Living in the mountains means that are our seasons are pretty defined. As we are nearing the end of our winter season, there are many sunny and warm days in the forecast. However, the end of winter means more than just sunshine and wildflowers. It also means, it is time to get our houses ready for all the spring brings!

As the sun streams through our windows, it can easily brighten up a room, but it can also highlight dusty ledges and dirty windows. Before the weather gets too warm and the snow completely melts, take a little time to tackle some home projects so you can live a carefree summer.

Here are just a few suggestions we have for your spring cleaning:

  • Dust ceiling fans and light fixtures
  • Clean windowsills and window tracks
  • Clean your oven and scrub the stovetop
  • Test the batteries in your smoke detectors
  • Clean behind and beneath your refrigerator
  • Defrost your freezer
  • Pack winter clothing away and bring out your summer clothing
  • Winterize your sporting gear and snowblower
  • Pressure wash your deck/patio and bring out your outdoor furniture
  • Clean your dryer vent
  • Remove window screens and wash them with soapy water
  • Pick up “discovered” dog poop 🙂

These simple items can make your home feel fresh and ready for the summer. These are also great tasks to complete if you are thinking about selling this summer.
