A Little Time at Home - Helpful Spring Cleaning Tips during the COVID quarantine

We have all benefited and gone stir-crazy during this COVID stay-at-home time, so let's put our remaining energy to good use to make our homes better!

Cleaning and organization around the house are very popular this time of year. If you’re ready to tackle that monumental chore, read on for some helpful information. (And if you’re so tidy and organized throughout the year that spring cleaning isn’t a big chore for you, well, keep that to yourself! Unless you want your friends and neighbors to be jealous, that is.)

For the exterior:

+Trim back any overgrown foliage and cut back any tree limbs overhanging or touching your roof by at least 3 feet.  Limbs striking the home can cause damage to the roof and your home and allow for water penetration and insect intrusion.

+ Eliminate any debris in the yard which is unsightly and may become a liability hazard should someone trip and fall.  Also fill any holes in the yard which may cause someone to stumble and become injured.

+ Repair and damaged or rotten areas on the home or outbuildings and pressure wash any nasty green mold you may see.

For the interior:

+Take it one room at a time. Deciding to clean or organize your entire home can quickly get overwhelming. If you focus on just one area or room, then move to another only when you’re finished, you’ll likely work more efficiently.

+Follow the six-month rule. Generally, if you haven’t used something in six months (with the exception of seasonal items), it’s a good idea to consider throwing it away or donating it.

+Don’t forget the kitchen. Just like other rooms, your kitchen likely has things that haven’t been used in some time — and this includes food in the refrigerator or freezer. Give those appliances a thorough cleaning and get rid of anything you won’t be eating.

+Set yourself up for success. Paper clutter is something we all could probably cut back on pretty easily. Setting up a few recycling bins throughout the house gives you a convenient alternative to just setting that old magazine or paperwork down somewhere and watching the pile grow.

+Stay safe. When you’re cleaning or maintaining your home, be mindful of the physical risks involved. Lift with your leg muscles, not your back. Avoid prolonged repetitive motions. Use ladders, lawnmowers and other dangerous tools with caution.
