Spring Cleaning Checklist

Garage

Make sure you clean the leftover salt off the garage floor and get rid of clutter.

 

Exterior Maintenance

Check the Gutters: Remove debris and build-up that may have occurred throughout the winter

Exterior: A good power wash to the outside of the home (windows included) will increase your curb appeal!

 

Interior Maintenance

Vaccuum: Vacuuming is a simple, yet efficient way to make your home look and smell clean. A few places that are overlooked: Windows, behind and under furniture, window treatments, and lampshades.

Dust: Light fixtures and chandeliers are a few places to get started. Don’t forget the knickknacks.
*Quick Tip: If dusting the above sounds like a major chore, it might be time to pack away a few to keep your home looking clean and spacious to your potential buyer!

Deep Clean: Showers, bathtubs, toilets… When you are determining where to focus your deep cleaning efforts, the bathroom should ALWAYS be first priority! Consider cleaning out the medicine cabinet and getting rid of expired/unused medication.

Launder: Blankets, comforters, bedspreads, and throw blankets you may have throughout the home should be cleaned before going on the market! These items tend to harbor smells, so for my fellow pet owners, this is a must!

 

Tip: GARAGE SALE!

As you are going through your home, consider which items you should store away while on the market, and which you could probably live without!
