It is easy to see your home in a somewhat messy state after the winter period. The unpredictable weather and regular freezes can, of course, leave your garden and exterior property looking unkempt. This simply means it is time to clean up your home. Perhaps this can be in-line with your spring cleaning routine.
Doing a spring routine that includes a good clean up of your home is not that hard to do. It may take a little time, energy, enthusiasm, and care, but I am sure your home will look good as new, ready to meet the ups and downs of another unpredictable year.
After all, our gardens and homes are perhaps more important than ever right now, as in societal lockdown we are all spending many more hours here than we would have expected. It is the best time to clean up your home while we are basically forced to be in it and have the time.
Removing Garden Debris
Removing garden debris is perhaps your first step to clean up your home. In the cold winter winds, bits of debris from other gardens, from fallen trees, or from unpredictable places can find their way into your garden. This might simply mean sweeping them away, throwing them in compost, or repairing and restructuring the elements of your garden (like the wooden borders of your vegetable patch) that may have been damaged.
Make sure to be careful, wear thick gloves, and do this slowly! This way, you ensure your safety. You may be surprised how much clean up you will have to do, but in the long run, it will be worth the hard work. It will leave your home look much cleaner and presentable.
Cleaning Your Windows
The heavy snow, frost, and rain can sometimes cause havoc on our windows, and make them a little dirty. For that reason, cleaning your windows using a professional could be your best and foremost port of call. When the spring rays start coming in, we can then begin to open our curtains in the morning once again and make use of the natural light and feelings of being ‘boosted’ that we often get when the warmth returns. And more than ‘cleaning up’ your property, it will help it look beautiful once more.
Securing Your Treeline
Of course, trees can also take something of a beating in the midst of winter. Not only do their branches become brittle and lose all of their leaves (with the exception of Evergreens), but heavy winds, frosts, snows, and even storms can leave them structurally weaker than they may have been otherwise. Furthermore, sometimes trees can become infected, and begin rotting. This can become a health hazard for your garden and family at large, which is why a worthwhile and safety-oriented emergency tree service is more than worth your investment. This can help you clear up debris, or pre-emptively resolve a clear safety threat. As such, make sure to inspect your treeline as appropriate.
Final Thoughts on How to Clean Up Your Home
With this advice, we hope you can more easily clean up your home after winter. A good solid cleanup can help your home look better, more presentable, and give you that warm cozy filling again. Remove all the debris that has accumulated from the winter months, clean those windows, get those trees trimmed up.
Doing these tasks, although time consuming, will allow you to clean up your home before the warm weather season starts and will allow you to spend some time gardening and enjoying your yard and gardens again.
