We are back with part 2 of Spring Cleaning: More than Just Vacuuming! Last time we touched on how to “amp up” the spring cleaning process in your kitchen and bathroom; this week we are going to super clean your attic (yes, your attic!) and your outdoor living space!
O.K. we get it—when you think of spring cleaning, you don’t think of spring cleaning your attic, but you really should. Rodents and spiders adore living in this dark, neglected space. They love all the corners and clutter. So, first things first, purge as much clutter as you can. This will go a long way in eliminating hiding spots for them. Also, consider swapping out cardboard boxes for plastic bins instead. (Roaches love to dine on cardboard!) And don’t forget to seal any cracks or crevices that pests could use to enter your home through your attic.
And don’t forget your outdoor living area when you are on your spring cleaning kick either! There is a lot you can do to help keep those bugs at bay outside your home.
Start with your roof and clean off any leaves or debris that has gathered over the winter months. Bugs LOVE to live in this stuff. Then, clean out clogged gutters and downspouts as this is another place bugs love to hang out. Repair any ripped screens to keep mosquitoes away, and replace weather-stripping where needed. And definitely remember to trim the bushes and branches away from your home as this is a super highway for pests to motor right on into your home! Also, it’s best to remove rotted tree stumps and keep mulch at least 15 inches away from the home’s foundation since these are termite magnets!
If you add these “extras” to your normal spring cleaning routine, you should find yourself in a sparkling clean home ready to enjoy all the beauty of spring!
Easter is a time to celebrate the hope, renewal, and new life that is made possible through Jesus Christ. His sacrifice at the Cross has made these available to us and for this we are forever grateful!
…But one thing we know and can stand upon. Jesus has burst open the gates of LIFE. So we look ahead with great joy. The Story of God is one of hope, promise and life eternal.― Anusha Atukorala
