Spring is the perfect time to tackle home maintenance. This includes a deep home cleaning, window washing, pressure washing, and cleaning gutters. Completing these upkeep tasks help to protect your home’s value, appearance and function, while reducing future costly repairs.
Few things feel as good as a sparkling clean home. Also, studies have shown that people with clean houses tend to be healthier, less stressed, more focused, sleep better and happier. However, many homeowners live very busy lives and struggle to keep up with the basics: laundry, dishes, vacuuming, bed, and so on. At least twice a year, a deep cleaning is recommended which includes whipping down all services including baseboards, ceilings, walls, appliances, cabinets, blinds, windows, and all nooks and crannies.
A complete window cleaning, inside and out, drastically improves a home’s appearance from the inside, out. It also invites more light into the home improving everyone’s mood while enhancing the view. Also, window washing offers an opportunity to inspect windows and screens for any potential issues. Catching and addressing these issues early can help homeowners avoid future costly repairs or replacements.
Pressure washing is the best way to clean home siding, sidewalks, driveways, patios, decks and more. If done right, it can restore surfaces to nearly original appearance, extend the life of decks, and reduce indoor allergen levels. Power washing also helps to prevent permanent damage or slippery surfaces caused by mold, moss, stains, dirt and grime. However, it’s extremely important to use the pressure washer correctly, otherwise it’s easy to cause costly damages. When in doubt it’s best to hire experienced pressure washing professionals.
A key part of home maintenance is cleaning gutters and downspouts at least twice a year, usually in the spring and fall. A home’s gutter system is key to keeping water away from your home, roof and foundation. However, overtime leaves and debris often end up in gutters which can cause clogs. Clogged gutters can lead to various issues that may lead to costly problems such as a leaky roof and interior or exterior water damages. Consequently, regularly gutter cleaning is vital to a well-functioning home.
