Spring Cleaning for Your Outdoors the Easy Way

Monday, March 10th, 2014 by Office


With spring’s extra dose of sunshine comes a new boost of energy, and it’s also the perfect time to shake off the winter blues and do spring cleaning. You can start with the outside of your house, which is probably looking as weather-beaten and gray as you’ve been feeling after the weeks of ice, snow, and cold weather. As home improvement expert and TV personality Bob Vila puts it:
[March] is a good month to bring some order and organization to your home (and life), and to refresh the house after it's been closed tight for winter… Spring cleaning is by no means confined to the indoors. Take a walk around the exterior of your house to evaluate the condition of your home’s roofing, siding, and foundation. Snow, ice, and fluctuating temperatures can take their toll on your home's exterior. Also, check to see if weather-stripping and caulk have remained intact. Making sure your house is still tightly sealed will help keep your cooling costs down this summer.
