Outdoor Spring Cleaning
Spring is here!
Now that you have most likely finished cleaning the inside of your house, it is time to head outdoors and tidy up the yard and clean the outside of the house! We hope this list helps you get the job done a little quicker and a little easier.
Start by removing the screen from the outside. Gently scrub the screen with a brush and soapy water, spray off with a water hose after scrubbing. Clean the window the same way.
Everybody's favorite job! Use caution while you are up on the ladder cleaning out your gutters. If you are not using some sort of scoop to get leaves and gunk out of the gutters, then please wear gloves so you do not cut your hand on any jagged metal.
Your yard has probably spent all winter with little care from you because, lets face it, who really wants to go do yard work during the gloominess of winter? Now is the time to rake all the leaves out of your yard. Cut the grass if it already needs it. Do a little landscaping to beautify your yard! A few flower pots with brand new foliage can totally transform the appearance of your yard!
Wash the house
Now is the time to break out the pressure washer! Wash off all the dirt and dust from the winter months. If the exterior of your house cannot handle being pressure washed then a long brush and water hose will work too. If you have concrete sidewalks and driveways go ahead and freshen those up too. You'll be amazed at how dirty your concrete gets.
Still more to do
These are just some of the major areas to focus on like painting, making repairs to fences, and cleaning out the garage. As long as you have done the major points your yard and home will be looking beautiful. It will be almost like winter, "Never even happened!"
