Spring Cleaning-Outside!!

Spring Cleaning-Outside!

Besides basic dusting, vacuuming, and organizing lesser used things in the home, spring is also an excellent time for homeowners to ensure that their home exteriors are ready for an increase in use. It’s a good time to inspect the roof, and gutters for possible signs of wear and tear as well as remove any vegetative debris such as fallen leaves and twigs from the roof’s surface. New landscape to shield your home from Florida’s hot summer weather should also get planted during the springtime. The right plants outside of your home can decrease the amount of power your AC system will have to put out to cool your home. Early spring is also an excellent time to clean and inspect outdoor lighting and replace burned out bulbs with energy-efficient compact fluorescent counterparts.
