Spring is a Great Time to Make Your Home Clean and Safe
Spring cleaning can be a dirty word to many homeowners, but it doesn’t have to be. The little cleaning and maintenance projects that people inevitably start doing in the spring don’t have to be painful, and they sometimes have long-term unforeseen benefits.
When you do your spring cleaning, make a “keep,” “sell or donate” and a “trash” pile. While filling the latter two piles will both help reduce clutter and make your house a little safer and more comfortable, it’s the “sell or donate” pile that pays dividends. You get immediate cash for whatever you sell at a garage sale or on eBay, and you can get a tax break for what you donate. Also, don’t forget to clean out your medicine cabinet and properly dispose of old medications.
One sure sign of spring is setting the clocks ahead for daylight savings time, and that is also your cue to replace the batteries in and test your fire and carbon monoxide alarms. Spring is also a great time to change the filters in major appliances, from your furnace to your humidifier, to make sure that they run safely and efficiently. Speaking of appliances, one way to make sure your air conditioner runs safely and efficiently all summer long is to get it serviced in the spring.
Spring is also a great time to check up on your home insurance to make sure you’re getting the coverage you need at the best possible rate. If you live in the state of California, you should contact Little and Sons Insurance Services in Beaumont, California to get a quote today!
