Spring Cleaning Tips For Your Florida Home

Hey there! It looks like spring has finally sprung, and you know what that means, right? It’s time to shake off the winter dust and freshen up our homes for the sunny days ahead. Whether you’re planning to bask in the Florida sun all summer or you’re heading back north, I’ve got some spring-cleaning tips that are just perfect for all of us Florida homeowners.

**Dive into Pool Prep**

First up, let’s talk pools. Getting your pool summer-ready means adding the right cleaning solutions, giving the sides a good scrub, and vacuuming the bottom. If you’re heading back north, you might want to think about draining the water and covering it up. This can help keep out unwanted guests like critters or prevent damage from any unexpected weather. And, of course, safety first – make sure your pool fencing is in place to prevent any accidents. Have you checked out Edison’s Liability coverage? It’s something to consider to protect yourself financially just in case.

**Fridge Makeover**

Now, onto the fridge. It’s a good idea to give it a thorough cleaning at least once a year. Take everything out, pull out the drawers and shelves, and clean them one by one. Don’t forget to wipe down the inside walls and the door. Before you restock, do a quick check of expiration dates and say goodbye to any old items. If you’re saying adios to Florida for the summer, make sure to clear out all the perishables and unplug the fridge.

**Appliance TLC**

Your other appliances deserve some love, too. The oven, microwave, dishwasher, toaster oven, coffee maker, you name it – if you use it daily, it’s time for a clean. A bit of baking soda and white vinegar can work wonders on food residue. And hey, if your appliance has a self-clean function, let it do the heavy lifting for you.

**Exterior Glow-Up**

Want to make your house look as good as new? A good wash can do wonders. Whether you’re using a power washer or just your garden hose and an old broom, it’s time to get scrubbing. Pay extra attention to your windows – those corners and glass need to sparkle, inside and out. Heading north for the summer? Don’t forget to turn off your main water valve to avoid any mishaps while you’re away.

**Carpet Refresh**

Lastly, let’s not forget about the carpets. They can hide a lot of dirt and bacteria that build up over time. Giving your carpets a deep clean at least once a year can really make a difference. Whether you rent a machine or call in the pros, you’re extending the life of your carpet, improving air quality, and making future cleanups a breeze.

So, there you have it – a few simple steps to get your Florida home spring-ready. Whether you’re sticking around to enjoy the summer or heading back north, these tips will ensure your home is fresh, clean, and ready for whatever the season brings. Let’s make this spring cleaning a breeze together!
