Spring Cleaning Tips for MA Homeowners

This stint of warm weather is a nice preview of Spring. In fact, we’re starting to think of all things Spring! One important task is the dreaded Spring cleaning. Here are a few Spring cleaning tips for MA homeowners.

Get a Head Start on the Landscaping

Early Spring is the best time to start yard work. Gathering leaves, cleaning up edging, trimming and weeding are all easier before everything starts growing. You’ll find that maintaining your landscaping will require less time later based on your prep work now.

Keep, Donate, or Sell

During winter, we all tend to pile things up. Come Spring, it’s time to finally look through the items you’ve hoarded. Think about what items you’d like to keep versus those that you may want to sell or donate. Spring and summer are great times for yard sales. For higher priced or easily shipped items, you may consider selling on eBay or Craig’s List.

Pest Prevention Treatments

If you’ve had any pest problems in the past or live in an area with potential for them (i.e. near wooded areas), you should treat the exterior perimeter of your property. Interior precautions (such as traps or bait) may also be a good idea. Products are available at your local hardware store. There are also professional pest treatment services available.

Other Spring Cleaning Tips for MA Homeowners

In addition to the above spring cleaning tips for MA homeowners, Spring is a great time to perform an overall home cleansing. This means washing windows, area rugs, and flooring. While you’re at it, freshen up your home decor with bright and warm hues. A productive Spring cleaning gives you more time to relax and enjoy the weather during the warmer summer months.
