It’s time to clean the kitchen hood exhaust and dryer vent. Both need to stay dirt and grime free in order to run efficiently and safely.  Replace the filter in your kitchen hood exhaust if it’s disposable or clean with a good degreaser. A dryer cleaning kit can be purchased at any major grocery or hardware store.  Be sure to clean out that lent all the way to the wall for a clean flow of air. 


OutdoorsSun shining through a window can make your home feel cheerful and bright.  This month, make it a priority to wash windows and replace any torn screens.  There are several brands of outdoor window cleaner that easily attach to your water hose and make for a quick and easy clean.  For second story windows, a ladder might be needed but be sure and always think safety first. 




Spring is upon us and that means spring-cleaning.  While this can seem overwhelming, there is a way to manage the many cleaning tasks on your to do list.  Making a list and breaking each task up into daily, weekly and monthly sections can help you wrap your mind around what needs to be done.  Doing a little bit at a time is much more manageable then trying to do it all at once.  If you are unsure of how to make your own list, or just need a place to start, we’ve listed a couple of websites with printable lists to help you get going in the right direction.
