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.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
