Spring is just around the corner, whether it feels like it or not. So now’s a good time to start thinking about prepping your home for the new season. At Perfect Fit Window Fashions here in Estero, we have a few things you might consider. Read on to learn more!
Now is a great time to tackle some big tasks, as well as some of those everyday chores you might have been neglecting. For example, you could clean out your garage and rid it of both junk and any gunk that might have traveled in with your tires. Your basement or storage area might need some reorganizing. And now’s a great time to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Weather and just plain time can conspire to clog your gutters and downspouts with leaves, muck, and other debris. If you put off repairs and cleaning, you can cause some problems down the road, so springtime is the right time to tackle it. Once you’ve cleared the foreign material from the gutters, be sure the downspouts send the water at least five feet from the structure of your home.
You might do a great job at cleaning the lint from your dryer screen with every load, but even still, it can build up in your machine and in the ducts. That build-up can become a fire hazard, so it’s important to remove it. Simply disconnect the vent from the back of your machine and remove the lint with a dryer vent brush or a strong vacuum. Also be sure to brush the lint from the external dryer vent cover outside your home.
You might not have even noticed how your view has gotten impaired over the winter from weather and grime. Now’s a great time to wash the inside and outside of your windows to get the glass clean. And be sure to clean the screens while you’re at it. You can take care of it in your tub or utility sink (or even your kitchen sink) with a rag and some mild soapy water. Repair any breaks or replace screens that are beyond repair. And now’s a good time to do some maintenance on your window treatments. You can dust blinds and shades, and vacuum treatments like Silhouette® using the brush attachment. Use compressed air to clean out cellular shades such as Duette® Honeycomb Shades. If your aluminum or faux wood blinds (such as Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds or Modern Precious Metals® Aluminum Blinds) are particularly grimy, you can remove them and clean them with lukewarm water in a bathtub or sink. Reinstall the treatment while it’s still damp, and lower it to let it completely dry. And be sure to speak with one of our representatives if you’re in need of entirely new treatments. We’ll be happy to help you find the product that will suit your needs.
