It’s time to come out of hiding and let the sunshine in! The problem with all that sunshine is that now you can really see that your house is in dire need of a serious cleaning . It’s okay though, we can help get your place in tip top shape in no time! Here are some tips:

Clean Indoor Furniture: Vacuum up those dust bunnies, don’t let them multiply anymore!

Clean Outdoor Furniture: Inspect the gutters, and deck furniture. No one wants to sit on a broken chair or eat on a wobbly table during a barbeque!

Wax Hardwood Floor: Spruce up your wood floor. The winter sidewalk salt and dry heat have most likely done a number on them.

Changing Seasons, Changing Clothes: Switch your winter wardrobe for spring/summer, but before stowing it all under the bed, don’t forget to pick out the unwanted stuff now & donate it to a good cause.

Inspect Cooling Systems: Better safe than sorry! Don’t wait for it to be 100 degrees outside to find out your air conditioner is broken!

Wash Windows: Who doesn’t want a spotless window.

Garage Sale/ Donation: Once you clean out anything you don’t plan to keep, host a garage sale or donate. The saying goes, ” Another man’s trash, is another man’s treasure!”

Cleaning doesn’t have to drive you crazy, just have fun with it!
