In spring, I move.” If you’re like me, springtime inspires you to let in the fresh air and roll up your sleeves to get your home looking its best. Here are 3 home improvement tips for spring in St. George to get your home looking like new. 1. Go Through A Spring Checkup For Safety And Energy Efficiency Spring is the perfect time to make sure all of your home’s systems are working properly for the the upcoming summer months. Here’s a list of some of the things you should inspect every spring in St. George: HVAC System. Test your air conditioning system to ensure that it’s ready for the coming summer heat. Improve your HVAC system’s energy efficiency by replacing your furnace and air conditioning filters. Local HVAC companies may provide this service for a low fee. Smoke Detectors. Test your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to keep your family and home safe. Put fresh batteries in your alarms in the spring and in the fall. Caulking and Windows. Check the caulking around doors, windows, and kitchen and bathroom fixtures for holes or cracks. Replace the caulking as you go. Put in window treatments, like plantation shutters, to increase the energy efficiency of your windows. Open all your windows to make sure that they can move freely. 2. Give Your House A Deep Clean So That It Shines If you want to see your house really sparkle, give it a deep clean. First, declutter every room to open up your home. After that, clean surfaces you don’t wipe down regularly such as kitchen and bathroom walls, baseboards, floors, and ceiling fans. Shine your bathroom and kitchen fixtures. Move your furniture to clean the areas under and behind it and then vacuum your furniture as well. Brighten your home by cleaning your windows. Scrub your windows and screens to remove dirt and smudges. Clean your window treatments including shutters, draperies, and shades. You can clean your blinds with an ultrasonic cleaning treatment. 3. Redecorate Your Rooms For A Fresh Look After you’re done with deep cleaning, it’s time for the fun part: redecorating. The simplest way to redecorate your rooms is to find new ways to use things you already have. Rearranging your furniture can give the room a completely new feel. Or you can shop your home, which means switching out the furniture and accessories you own between rooms. Add more color with new paint, bright accent pillows, and live plants.
