As Spring continues to grace us with warmer weather, you’ve probably come up with a list of chores you want to get done before summer hits. Well, if you’re having trouble actually starting that list, don’t stress. These are some slightly easier spring home chores to do right now to get your living space in better shape.
Check Your Smoke Detectors
Although a smoke detector’s batteries tend to last several years, it’s still important to check them regularly to ensure they’re working properly. Test every detector in your home and if they don’t ring, install fresh batteries. Also, be sure to do this with your carbon monoxide detectors as well.
Empty Your Closets
After months of packing your drawers and closets with bulky winter clothes, packing all those items into boxes and place them into storage for the summer. You’ll have a much easier time finding your favorite summer outfits if you don’t have to go through a bunch of sweaters first.
Change Your Washing Machine Hoses
These hoses, especially if they’re made of rubber, can wear down, crack, or burst if they’re not replaced enough. In order to avoid a clog or mess, it’s best to replace your rubber hoses with new ones or with longer-lasting stainless steel-braided.
Clean Your Gutters
All those spring showers can clog up your gutters with leaves and other debris, so make sure you clean out your gutters regularly. This can be done in a few hours over the weekend, but should definitely be done after any big storm.
Wash Your Interiors
After taking a beating from snow and salt, your siding needs a good wash. Use a soft-bristled brush, soap, and water to wash any grime off your siding and keep it in good shape.
