Spring Cleaning

Spring Cleaning

It’s officially spring, so let the Spring Cleaning begin!  Especially if you’re thinking of listing your home! Spring cleaning is a great idea anyway, but especially right before listing!  Some important steps to include are:

  • Dust the walls and baseboards — they accumulate dust!  Don’t forget the crown molding too!
  • Reseal grout lines to freshen them up.
  • Shampoo the rugs and carpets — help them smell fresh and loosen recent stains.
  • Polish door and window hardware.
  • Make sure you dust the window sills and door frames.
  • Clean the blinds — it’s a pain, but it’s an often overlooked detail.
  • Clean the upholstery on your furniture — it is a reflection of the care you show to your home!
  • Clean the ceiling fan blades.
  • Touch up chipped paint in all the rooms.
  • Clean the windows and screens.
  • Dust out the tracks on sliding doors.
  • Clean the oven and burners.
  • Clean out closets and drawers.

All of these steps, as well as a good cleaning, are the first steps to getting your home ready for a new buyer!
