Put away all your clutter
One of the most important aspects of spring cleaning is to get rid of the clutter in your home! If you can easily get rid of junk and the clutter that builds up in your home, it’s going to make your home feel so much bigger and better, and even allows the air to circulate better.
The Air Needs Clearing
If your home has gotten a little stuffy, it’s time to turn on your fans, open the windows, and if you have one, an attic fan that will pull all that old air out of the house and the fresh air from outside in.
You need to be replacing your air filters in your furnace and vents regularly, even more regularly if you have pets! Every 90 days, max. If you have any questions or can’t seem to find the right filter, let us know, and we’ll be happy to help out and show you how to properly change them.
General Clean Up
We can arrange to have the gutters cleaned out for spring preparation, to have the house power washed by a professional, and even have the deck’s re-stained at the request of the home owner. These prices do go up significantly in the late spring and summer months, so it’s a good thing to get in your head and have a great first start in the beginning of spring.
Carpets need to be deep cleaned every single year, and every 6 months if you have a pet! You can do it yourself or hire someone to clean your carpets, and this will also help you maintain your security deposit, along with making your home feel better and keep your family from getting sick.
Like a Boss
Clean your windows and mirrors. You’d be surprised by how much better your home will feel once everything is squeaky clean and clear – and even though they might not look like they need touched up, you’d be surprised. Get rid of old cosmetics, soaps, and medicine, clear off your bookshelves, clean your pets’ beds, and take a broom to the corners of your ceilings to get rid of any dust or cobwebs.
Clean all your appliances, including the inside of your fridge and oven. Wipe down cabinets inside and out, your stove top burners, and the plate in your microwave. From there, go to your tenant portal and send us maintenance requests for anything that you’ve been putting off, let us get your rental in tip top, brand new condition.
Change those fall and winter scents for fresh, clean or fruity candles! Exchange any wreaths of fall decorations still out for fresh flowers, bright colors, and put in new lightbulbs. The brighter, lighter, and more open you can get your home, the better.
Famous Last Words
The Spring Equinox has already passed, so it’s here, even if in Colorado it’s supposed to snow next weekend – but this is the perfect time to make sure that you’re comfortable, happy, and healthy in your rental home, it keeps your property manager happy, and just overall makes your life look a little brighter. Happy Spring, Denver!
