Ready for Some DIY Spring Cleaning?

Hey neighbors,

I am so ready for spring.  I mean, we have been going from nice spring temperatures to snow and then back again to short sleeve weather.  This has all happened in a period of a few days!!  All I want is for spring to finally arrive.  I am anticipating spring cleaning and some minor DIY repairs around the home.

We have so many things to do this spring.  Since we have been concentrating on the structure of the home and re-siding, now we have to catch up on some other things.  Most of these are DIY.  Simple easy to do, but often forgotten.  We have double hung windows, which makes one of the first jobs easy.  Cleaning the windows both inside and out.  We will also remove the screens and hose them off.  I think we have a billion windows!! LOL!



I am also wanting to do some landscaping since we are done re-siding.  Now I can remove all the weeds around the home and fences.  I am wanting to make some small flower gardens, as well as plant a vegetable garden for my daughter.  We will of course be planting a few bushes too!  I love rose bushes!



Another GREAT thing to remember is to change all filters.  We also vacuum out the areas around the filters and vents.  When we do this, it is also a good time to schedule a visit to have our furnace and AC cleaned.

Feel free to share in the comments some spring cleaning you are planning on implementing.
