With winter almost behind us, it’s time to start looking ahead to spring. If you’re ready to give your home a restart for the spring season, try some of these tips:
Get Your Deck Ready
Summers in Ontario can feel short, so try to get the most out of your outdoor space by getting it ready for use early! Take your outdoor furniture out of storage, or treat yourself to some new furniture, and make sure the space has plenty of lighting. It may not be 30 degrees for a while, but there are still plenty of opportunities to use your deck and other outdoor spaces during the spring.
Give Your Home a Lick of Paint
Both inside and outside, for some of us, our home could benefit from a fresh coat of paint after months of winter. Outside, you can easily paint certain types of siding, or even just give your door a fresh coat in a new, trendy colour.
Do Some Spring Cleaning
There’s something about spring that makes us want to take on those deep cleaning tasks we’ve been putting off for months. Spring cleaning can be done inside and outside, by washing your windows and siding and getting your storage spaces organized. Spend a weekend checking your spring cleaning jobs off your list to really feel refreshed and ready for the new season!
Update with Seasonal Decor
It’s time to put away those lingering Christmas decorations and winter-themed decor you have distributed around the house. Small changes can add a lot of freshness to your space, like brightly coloured throw pillows or a bright piece of artwork. Even a colourful bunch of spring flowers in your kitchen or living room can have a big impact.
Get Your Air Conditioner Serviced
You may not need your air conditioner for a while, but getting it serviced now means you’ll be able to rely on it starting up again as soon as you need it. Have your air conditioner serviced by a professional, replace the filters and have your ducts cleaned in the spring so your AC is fresh and ready to go when the hot summer weather hits.
It can be hard to stay on top of all those spring home projects! Make it easier with the spring maintenance checklist from Bryan’s Fuel.
