Tips to Spring Clean Your Home & Insurance!

Spring Maintenance for Your Home

Benefit your home and belongings with some spring cleaning.

April has sprung forward and many homeowners are ready with their feature dusters, mop and bucket, and tough-on-winter-grime cleaners.

Spring cleaning blows the dust of winter away from your home and breathes new life into your living quarters. This means that your home is ready for spring, summer, and beyond!

Here are some tips to get you started on your spring cleaning!

Spring Cleaning Checklist:

  • Wash and hang quilts and comforters, flip the mattress, and wash the sheets
  • Dust the ceiling fans
  • Clean all light switches, molding, and door knobs
  • Dust, sweep, and vacuum each room
  • Move the stove, refrigerator, washing machine, and dryer and sweep behind each appliance
  • Scrub out the inside of the microwave and oven
  • Sort through your fridge and freezer, throwing out expired foods and cleaning the drawers and shelves
  • Wash the inside and out of windows
  • Mop all tile and hardwood floors (and skirting boards)
  • Declutter! Remove three objects that you never use from each room
  • Donate unused items and gently worn clothing to your local charity shop
  • Review your homeowners insurance

As your homeowners insurance is there to protect your home and belongings from peril and damage, it’s important to have the right coverage. Forget a minimal policy that will leave you footing the bill for all of the damage to your home and possessions from a fire!
