In spring, I move.” If you’re like me, every spring you want to open your windows and scrub everything down so that your home looks its best. Here are 3 home improvement tips for spring in Colorado Springs so that your home looks as good as new. 1. Perform A Spring Checkup For Safety And Energy Efficiency Spring is the perfect time to make sure all of your home’s systems are working properly for the coming summer months. Here are some things you should inspect every spring in Colorado Springs: HVAC System. Test out your air conditioning system to make sure it can handle the summer heat. Replace your furnace and air conditioning filters so that your HVAC system is energy efficient. Some HVAC companies will do this service for a low fee. Smoke Detectors. Keep your home and family safe by testing your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Put fresh batteries in your alarms every spring and fall. Caulking and Windows. Inspect the caulking around doors, windows, and kitchen and bathroom fixtures for holes or cracks. Fix the caulking as you go. Add window treatments, such as plantation shutters, to increase your window’s energy efficiency and temperature control. Open and close your windows to make sure that they can freely move. 2. Give Your House A Deep Clean So That It Shines The best way to make your house shine is with a deep clean. Start by decluttering all of your rooms to open up the area. Then clean anything you don’t clean weekly including ceiling fans, floors, baseboards, and kitchen and bathrooms walls. Shine up your bathroom and kitchen fixtures. Vacuum your furniture and the area under and behind it as well. Bring in more natural light by cleaning your windows. Wash your screens and windows to get rid of smudges and dust. Wipe down your shutters, and clean your shades and draperies. You can clean your blinds with an ultrasonic cleaning treatment. 3. Give Your Rooms a New Look By Redecorating After you’re done with deep cleaning, it’s time for the fun part: redecorating. An easy way to redecorate your home is to use what you already have. Rearranging your furniture can give the room a whole new feel. Or you can shop your house, which means switching out the items you already have between rooms. Bring in more color with paint, colorful accent pillows, and plants. If you want to completely redo the look of a room, then look through our idea gallery for inspiration and ideas.
