Ultimate Spring-Cleaning Checklist For Your Home
This spring-cleaning checklist will help you sort out things and act as a guide on what to prioritise.
Pressure wash driveway, pathways, decks, and outdoors
Cleaning your driveway can make your entrance look better and new again by removing dirt. It also offers health benefits such as preventing algae and moulds from building up. It also reduces the risk of random “slip & slide” accidents. Your neighbours other by-passers would appreciate seeing clean driveways.
Clean Down pipes and Gutters
Gutters and down-pipes clogged up because they are not cleaned regularly. It can cause a serious damage to your property since water won’t flow properly during heavy rains. Damp build up can cause health issues to your family because it can act as a breeding ground for mosquitos.
Clean exterior windows including fly screens
Fly-screens are great because homeowners can enjoy both sunlight and fresh air while filtering unwanted visitors such as flies and insects from getting inside the house. However if your fly screens are dirty then it can block fresh air from entering inside the house at the same time covering your screens with dust and dirt.
Check the sprinkler and irrigation system
Sprinklers are a perfect addition in keeping your lawn lush green and fresh. While it also needs a good irrigation system so that water would properly be distributed to your yard.
If your sprinklers are not well maintained then your lawn will look dry and dull. You could be wasting a lot of water if your irrigation system is not functioning well because water is wasted since they are not properly distributed.
Re-oil the Deck, Timber Gates and any other external woodwork
Oiling the deck adds protection from the damaging UV rays, which can deplete and cause the wood to crack. Properly oiled and well maintained woods can last up to 2 years or even more depending on the kind of maintenance. Oiling your deck and other timber properties can extend the lifespan of the wood because it protects it from water, fungus and mould that literally degrade the wood decreasing the lifespan.
This spring-cleaning checklist will help you sort out things and act as a guide on what to prioritise. Removing damaged branches can make your trees healthy making way for new branches to grow.
