Woman, Window, Cleaning, Person, Female, HouseworkSpring is almost here and the weather is warming up. It's the perfect time to start those spring cleaning tasks you may have been putting off. Here are some simple things you can do to help maintain your home. 

  • Clean Windows and Sills- Even in our dry climate, condensation can build up on windows and window sills, creating mold. Use a cleaner to remove any mold and a clean cloth to wipe down the windows. 
  • Protect Counters- If you have granite counters, you need to seal them regularly. Use a stone-friendly cleaner then follow the instructions on the granite sealing container. Remember that some sealants need 24-hours before you can use the counters again. You'll know the granite is sealed when water beads on the surface.
  • Clean Cabinets- Kitchen cabinets can get grimy and greasy. Use a de-greaser and a soft cloth to remove any grease. Wood cabinets need to be oiled to retain their shine. Using your exhaust hood while cooking in the future can help grease from settling on your cabinets while you cook. 
  • Seal Grout- If you have tile floors, you know what a hassle it can be to clean the grout. After deep cleaning your floor, including the grout, seal the grout with a grout sealer. A small, foam brush can help keep mess to a minimum. 
  • Dust Trim Throughout- It's easy to forget about dusting your baseboards, crown molding, and doors throughout the year. Spend some quality time dusting your trim throughout your house. Running a dryer sheet over these surfaces may help prevent dust from sticking in the future. 
  • Clean Your Bathroom Fans- Turn off the power to the fan, remove the cover and wash in warm, soapy water. If the fan is extra grimy, a small cleaning brush or toothbrush can help get into the crevices. Dry thoroughly and replace. 
  • Inspect and Clean Window Screens- Even spraying window screens down with the hose can go a long way in removing cobwebs and dirt. If you find any tears, repair them now, no matter how small to prevent major holes this summer. 
  • Clean Siding- If your siding is looking a little dingy, you can spray it down with a power sprayer and mild detergent. Make sure the cleaner you use is not harmful to plants or animals.
