With spring approaching in New Hampshire’s beautiful Lakes Region, it’s the perfect time to prepare your home for the warmer weather. As the days get longer and temperatures start rising (though not as quickly as we’d like), many homeowners are eager to tackle their spring cleaning checklists. And with the promise of more sunshine and spending days on the lake ahead, thinking about all the spring cleanup tasks we need to take care of can be overwhelming.
As a busy homeowner, finding time and motivation to complete all the tasks required to get your home ready for spring and summer can be challenging, especially if you aren’t sure where to begin. At R2 Property Management, we know which areas of your home to focus on to keep your property in top condition all year long. Let’s take a closer look at those areas and the specific tasks you’ll want to include in your spring home cleaning checklist.
The fall and winter months in New Hampshire are undeniably beautiful, with fall’s vibrant foliage colors and winter’s snow-covered trees. But as the seasons change and spring approaches, many homeowners notice their homes’ exterior isn’t as pleasant as the scenery around them. Spring is the perfect time to remove all the dirt, grime, leaves, and debris that may have accumulated over the last few months.
Consider adding these exterior home cleaning tasks to your spring cleaning to-do list!
Dirty windows can make a home appear grimy and dull, and windows that haven’t been cleaned in a while can block natural light from entering the house. Keeping your windows shiny and clear can significantly enhance the look of your home’s exterior.
Dirt, grime, and other types of debris can build up over time on a home’s exterior, especially after the fall and winter months. Pressure washing can help remove this buildup and do wonders for the overall appearance of a property. Consider power washing your siding, deck, patio, and dock to help these exterior areas of your home shine.
Keeping these features clean can help prevent damage and extend their lifespan, saving homeowners money by minimizing the need for extensive repairs. A clean home exterior can also help increase curb appeal and property value, increasing vacation rental income if you rent your home periodically or year-round. Pressure washing is one of our many seasonal home property management services.
The buildup of dirt, leaves, and debris on a roof can clog gutters and cause severe damage, such as moisture buildup, deterioration, water damage, or pest infestations, to name a few. Clearing debris from your roof and gutter system regularly can help extend its lifespan and prevent costly issues from arising. It’ll also help maintain your home’s value and appearance.
Unfortunately, many homeowners neglect to keep up with this for various reasons. Whether you’re not a fan of ladders or simply don’t have the time, R2 Property Management can help you check these tasks off your spring checklist and help you keep your home protected.
Outdoor furniture stored away during winter must be cleaned and set up for the spring and summer seasons. Taking your furniture out of storage properly and setting it up nicely can help make your backyard or outdoor living space significantly more enjoyable.
When removing your outdoor furniture from storage, it’s essential to thoroughly clean it to remove any dust or debris and arrange it in a functional and aesthetically pleasing way. We know how important this small but time-consuming task can be and enjoy offering this service to our Lakes Region clients.
With spring bringing warmer weather, it’s time to open your windows and let fresh air in. It’s also a great time to deep clean your interior living space. Consider adding these interior home cleaning tasks to your spring cleaning to-do list!
Dusting is a task that can easily be neglected, but when performed regularly, it can go a long way. After a long winter, dusting is a great way to rid your home of all the recycled air and dirt particles that have landed on windowsills, trim, appliances, etc., throughout your home.
At the start of spring, you’ll want to thoroughly dust your home’s interior surfaces, including shelves, tables, and countertops. Remember to wipe hard-to-reach areas such as ceiling fans, light fixtures, and baseboards.
With winter boots tracking in snow, mud, gravel, and other particles all winter, your carpets can quickly accumulate dirt, dust, and allergens, negatively impacting a home’s air quality and overall cleanliness. Thoroughly vacuum hardwood floors, tiles, carpets, and area rugs, paying extra attention to high-traffic areas to help bring new life to your floors and cleaner interior air to your home.
The kitchen and bathroom can accumulate a lot of grime and bacteria any time of year, and spring is a great time to address this. Be sure to thoroughly clean kitchen appliances, such as the oven, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator, and wash and scrub sinks, toilets, and showers.
Spring is also an ideal time to take care of any minor repairs that you’ve been putting off. Whether it’s a leaky kitchen or bathroom faucet, a loose floorboard, or damaged wall trim, spring is a perfect time to address smaller repairs before they become bigger ones.
And, if you rent out your property regularly, it’s especially important to get these things fixed so your tenants won’t be complaining about them or writing bad reviews about the state of your property. From painting and plumbing to electrical, roofing, and more, our construction and handyman services are perfect for ensuring everything in your home is functioning as it should.
R2 Property Management offers various services to help you check off all the items on your spring cleaning to-do list. From home cleaning to seasonal property maintenance to construction, concierge, handyman services, and beyond, we’re here to help homeowners in New Hampshire’s beautiful Lakes Region start the new season on the right foot with a clean and inviting environment.
