Spring is just around the corner in Asheville, North Carolina. Residents of western North Carolina will soon be busy cleaning and preparing their homes for summer. As you begin to plan to tackle decluttering and tackling home projects, we want to make sure you have a plan-of-action. In this article and the next, we will discuss eight key tips for getting your home ready for spring and summer.

 

1) Perform Routing Heating and Air Conditioning Maintenance

Your HVAC will likely be taking a bit of leave as temperatures warm and you utilize mild mountain air to help maintain the comfort level of your home. Spring is a good time to perform routine HVAC maintenance, such as:

  • Replace your air filters
  • Clean the outdoor fan
  • Check for leaking refrigerant
  • Clean ducts
  • Make sure vents are unobstructed

2) Check Trouble Spots for Mold

Mold can develop anywhere moisture is allowed to collect. While you are performing spring cleaning, check trouble spots for signs of mold development. Key places mold can develop, include:

  • Window sills
  • Behind refrigerators
  • Underneath the dishwasher
  • Near the washing machine
  • Basements and crawlspaces
  • Under the water heater
  • Toilets and bathroom sinks

3) Have Siding and Outdoor Furniture Pressure Washed

With multiple rounds of snow and winter weather, your siding and outdoor features collected dirt and debris throughout winter. Additionally, salt used to melt ice can accelerate the breakdown of paint, wood, and metal. It is important to have your siding and furniture pressure washed, to remove dirt and grime and restore your home’s natural shine.

4) Utilize the Opportunity to Declutter

When families are stuck in their homes during winter, it is easy to see the things you have accumulated that you no longer use. As you begin spring cleaning, package boxes of unused items to donate to those in need. This will help you declutter your space and feel better about seldom used items.
