Yes, winter just arrived in Pensacola, but in our mild climate, it’s never too early to start preparing your home for warmer weather. Prepare your patio and porch by dusting off patio furniture, rugs, and mats. Blow off any leaves that have collected over time and sweep the patio floors. Now that your home’s exterior is fresh and clean, next on the list is to start the spring cleaning indoors!
Over the winter season, our home can collect dust, dirt, dander, and other bacteria. Take the time to prepare your home for spring by deep cleaning your space inside and out.
Starting with the exterior of your home, clean and vacuum door mats to remove the dirt and debris collected over the winter. Wash your windows, blinds, and baseboards to bring your home back to life and help remove some of the dust and dander that has collected. If you have pets, consider renting a carpet cleaner to relieve your home of many trapped pet particles, dander, and odors.
Next up on your spring cleaning to-do’s is to deep clean your kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms! Decluttering your home and organizing your rooms will help you and your family feel fresh and renewed in your home this spring! While you’re spending more time indoors, go ahead and sanitize countertops, shelving, ceiling fans, doorknobs, showers, cabinets, and more possibly neglected areas.
Maintenance & Air Purification System
Other ways to prepare your home for spring is to schedule a routine maintenance appointment and consider installing an air purification system. As the weather changes, it is important to check that your HVAC system is working properly during the changes in weather to keep your home nice and warm during the cold days and cool during the hot days.
Additionally, in the spring, the air inside and outside of our homes can be filled with pollen and allergens impacting the air we breathe. Investing in an air purification system is a fantastic way to reduce the amount of allergens, pet dander, dirt, bacteria, and other airborne contaminants that are in your home.
With all this cleaning, ensure your home stays cool and comfortable throughout any season. Contact us if you need help or have questions about your HVAC system or air purification systems!
