7 Upgrades for April
The beginning of Spring is always a good time for deep cleans and reorganization. It makes us feel refreshed for the new season. Here is a list of 7 easy upgrades you can do in your home this month.
1. Inspect porches
You’ll want to check your porches for rotting, so that you can replace any old boards that might be damaged.
2. Organize attic
This is a great way to de-clutter your home. Throw away those items that have been stored up there for so long or maybe even sell them in a yard sale!
3. Head off spring allergies
You can prevent allergens from spreading deep into your home by placing a door mat at each entrance of your home. An even better way to be sure you aren’t bringing in allergens and pollens from the ground is to remove your shoes before entering your home. This will also keep your carpets cleaner!
4. Check for termites
And if you have a problem, call an exterminator!
5. Re-caulk around the tubs
Ensure that no water is seeping behind the bathroom tiles by replacing your old caulk with new. This can prevent extensive water damages.
6. Refresh old potting soil
If your plants last year were healthy, then you can reuse the soil.
7. Plant a tree
Happy Arbor Day! April 29 is the date this year that is dedicated to planting and caring for trees. A crap myrtle would be perfect for our area!
