Spring is almost upon us, and you know what that means... It’s time to start your annual spring cleaning. Whether you are looking to put your home on the market, or just want to spruce things up around the house, we’ve got a few quick tips to help boost the value of your home and get it looking its best.
Pay attention to curb appeal
First impressions are important, so make sure to have your home’s exterior looking its best. Improving your home's curb appeal can be done on a budget, too. A few cost-effective options include pressure washing your driveway, mulching your landscaping and updating with annual plants, replacing or repairing the mailbox, or even adding a fresh coat of paint. These things help to update your home's exterior.
Clean your carpets and air filters
Dirty carpets and floors can be a breeding ground for bacteria and, not to mention, an eyesore. Consider renting a steamer or carpet cleaner to give your floors a facelift! Not only will your home look better, but you won’t be breathing in harmful bacteria. Aside from your typical dusting, consider changing your home's air filters, as well. These should be regularly replaced and can also help lower your monthly utility bill.
Deep clean the kitchen & bathroom
These can be two of the dirtiest rooms in your home. Each is used daily, and their cleanliness can often go ignored. Make sure to do a thorough deep clean; wiping down all cabinets and appliances. A kitchen remodel can be expensive and time-consuming. Minor cosmetic changes, like updating your hardware, and a simple, fresh coat of paint on your cabinets and kitchen, can give your kitchen a new look for a fraction of the cost. The same goes for your bathroom. Consider updating your faucet and lighting and refreshing the paint. Overhead lighting is outdated, so try wall-mounted lights for a softer, modern look.
Spring cleaning can be overwhelming. Remember to take it one room at a time. Even if you aren’t looking to put your home on the market, these spring cleaning tips will make your house tidy and boost its value.
