Keeping a home healthy is more than just dusting and cleaning. When did you last check your smoker alarms? What about the last time you cleaned your dryer vent? Follow the tips below to make sure your family and home are ready for a fun, clean spring season.
Gutters are cleaned
Hold the ladder, and inspect your gutter for debris. Remove as much as possible with your hands (Don't forget to wear gloves!). Remove any remaining gunk with a garden hose. Remove any microphone and have an assistant open the water when you are ready. Pull the hose into the downspout to exit the gooseneck bend. Make sure your downspouts channel is at least 5 meters from the base walls.
Rubbing Walls, Baseboards and Stores

Wipe all walls - bathroom, kitchen, bedrooms and living areas - with a sponge or brush and mild soap and water. This includes baseboards and shops. Be sure to completely cover the covers before replacing.
Install other filters including water filters, distance and air filters. You should change these filters every 3-6 months depending on the type of filter you have.
Clean Taps and Showerheads
Remove the faucet, apply the sprayers and shower heads, and apply them in equal parts of vinegar and water solution. Let them soak for an hour, then wash with warm water.
Clean Dryer Vent
A closed drying space can be a fire hazard. To clean it, cut off the air behind the machine and use a dryer vent brush to remove the lint. Outside your house, remove the dryer vent cover and use a brush to remove the lint from the other side of the air vent. Make sure the flap cover is moving smoothly.
Wash external Windows
Hire a window cleaning service to clean all the outside windows.
Keep Allergen Away
Keep dust, mildew and pollen out of the way by damaging your home, checking for leaks and keeping air clean.
Check out Foundation Vents
The house with crawling space has holes along the foundation walls. These storms provide air circulation that helps prevent excess moisture and mold growth, and prevents critics from taking up residence under your home. The screens collec leaves and other remains in the fall and winter. Spring is a good time to clean them up and look for damage. Clean packages by hand or use a vacuum in the store. Fix any damaged screens - critics can get into even the smallest holes.
