Take Your Massachusetts Home to the Next Level with Expert Cleaning Tips
Ready to tackle your spring-cleaning to-do list? Before you start, add these helpful HVAC cleaning and home safety steps to your schedule, so you don’t forget. In addition to deep cleaning all the corners and crevices of your home, it’s essential to take a deeper look at your home comfort equipment, such as your heater, air conditioner, and more, to make sure your systems are clean, safe, and operating at peak efficiency, ready to keep you comfortable and safe, no matter what. Check out the list below to get prepared.
Clean Windows, Screens & Sills
One way to help keep the dust, debris, and allergens at bay is to thoroughly clean the areas where these pesky pollutants enter the most. This means your windows, doorways, screens, sills, and thresholds. By removing the trapped dirt accumulated in these spaces, you’ll already be off to a much cleaner start and easier upkeep as you modify your cleaning schedule in the coming weeks and months.
Schedule Your Annual Heating System Tune-Up
Did you know your annual heating system tune-up includes a routine cleaning service? That’s right. This essential maintenance service helps remove built-up debris within your system, so it can run more efficiently year after year and keep you warm in the seasons you need it the most.
Get An Oil Tank Inspection
Your scheduled spring tune-up also comes complete with an oil tank inspection. Your tank is another essential piece of equipment that should be kept clean and inspected for any hazardous signs of wear, damage, rusting, leaks, and water condensation each year. Don’t let your oil tank slip your mind this spring-cleaning season, and click here to schedule your next heating tune-up service today.
Tune-Up or Replace Your A/C
With the hottest months of the year rapidly approaching, don’t forget about your air conditioning system in your spring-cleaning tasks. It’s best to use this time to hurry and beat the heat by scheduling your annual A/C system maintenance or installing a new, high-efficiency air conditioning system, so you can keep cool this summer.
Practice Fire Safety
When was the last time you inspected your home fire safety equipment? If you haven’t done so this year, now is the time. Be sure to change your smoke detector and CO detector batteries, check the fire extinguisher expiration date, and remind children and family members in your household of an emergency meeting spot and procedure in case of a fire. Additionally, stock emergency ladders in second-story bedrooms and ensure doorways aren’t blocked by clutter regularly.
Reduce Dust & Allergens With Carpet Cleaners
Improving your indoor air quality doesn’t have to be complicated. If your filters have already been replaced throughout your home, and your windowsills, screens, and doorways have been cleaned, the next step is to tackle some of the hidden dust and allergens embedded in your carpet. Luckily, this is easy to do by using or renting a carpet shampooing machine. We recommend doing this at least yearly to get the best indoor air quality results while keeping unnecessary pollutants in your home at bay.
