Spring Cleaning to minimize future maintenance costs

✓ Change the A/C filter, check hose connections for leaks, make sure the drain pans are draining freely, and vacuum any dust that has settled on the unit and connections

✓ Clean the furnace filter to remove dust build-ups. This can ultimately lower your utility bills by regulating the temperature in your home.

✓ Have the fireplace/chimney professionally inspected and cleaned.

✓ Replace the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Install a smoke detector on every floor of your home, including the basement.

✓ Check the water softener and replenish salt if necessary.

✓ Clean faucet aerators and showerheads to remove mineral deposits.

✓ Inspect tub, shower and sink drains for debris and inspect the caulking for deterioration.

✓ Vacuum lint from the dryer vent.

✓ Clean the carpets.

✓ Inspect the attic for insects and other pests and professionally spray all areas of the home.

✓ Spring cleaning of the home is recommended, especially often neglected areas such as ceiling fans, fabric drapes, top of wall mounted cabinets, top of the refrigerator, and blinds.  Removing dust and other allergens makes for an all-around healthier home.
