Opening the windows on the first warm day of the year is one of life’s great pleasures – until all that sunlight and breeze makes you realize how dusty, dirty and cluttered your house has become during the winter hibernation. Even the messiest among us get the urge for spring cleaning – and though we don’t all act on it, those of us who do should keep the annual scrub-down as green as possible.

Carpet Cleaning

Carpets get a little dirtier every day, even with regular vacuuming. A regular professional cleaning with extend the life of your carpet, clean your home, and make it smell fresh. Carpet cleaning is a necessity if you want your soft flooring to last as long as possible. Not only is regular carpet cleaning going to enhance the appearance of your home, it will remove the damaging particles deep within the fibers that can cause premature aging. While carpet cleaning is a great option for wall-to-wall carpet, off-site rug cleaning is often preferable for delicate rugs.

Tile Cleaning

Clean tile and slate with warm water only. Prevention becomes essential with these floor surfaces. Regularly apply a sealant found in tile stores to slate, tile and especially the grout. Clean spills immediately.

Gutter Cleaning

1. Collect the tools to a location near your starting place.
2. Set the extension ladder on a level place.
3. Begin at the part of the gutter closest to the downspout.
4. Once you have removed all of the larger debris, get the garden hose.

Foundation Inspections

You should check the interior/exterior of foundation for cracks, crumbling, and other problems every springtime, because your whole house is sitting on the foundation – so foundation problems are big problems. Routine inspections will help you identify and remedy any issues before they become a problem.
