The change in season is slowly but surely coming for everyone, and plenty of people are
excited to be able to wear fewer layers indoors and see a little bit more light in the evenings.
Spring is on its way! But that does mean it is time to get brushing and dusting and getting the
home into its best shape after the winter hunk down.
This piece is going to take a look at spring cleaning your Richmond home, so you can get
excited and prepared for the change.
Let’s get into it!

Get in the Nooks and Crannies
If there is one thing that people have in common over winter, it is that they most likely do not
want to be worrying themselves about the crumbs in between the fridge and the oven or
what has managed to fall behind the cupboards. It is cold, people are tired, and unless you
require to have a show home 24/7, these bits and pieces can wait until the spring.
That being said, there is an exception to this, and that is if you are prone to an infestation.
Much like humans, rodents are also cold and hungry in the winter, and having excess
crumbs around is much like a buffet for them. Unfortunately, having them in the home can
cause problems. If you do suspect you have a pest issue, then it would be best to hire a
professional. Gulf Coast Exterminators has provided affordable and highly effective
Richmond Texas pest control services for over 20 years.

Get Your Space Organized
It will come as little shock to many the amount of stuff that has been accumulated over a
year. It could be the Tupperware box without a lid you swore you would find a use for or a
pile of clothes that you did not get around to wearing once – whatever it is, it is time to be
ruthless and get rid of the stuff you do not use and are not likely to use. After you have
completed this, you will be able to get your space organized much more easily. Think
storage boxes, baskets, furniture – whatever you need to give your belongings their own
place and set you up for the rest of the year.

Complete the ‘Once in a While’ Jobs
Wiping down your walls and cleaning your carpets can give you a fresh beginning for the
lighter and warmer months ahead. Having this sort of deep clean will get rid of any old grime
and grease and give you a fresh canvas for summer for you to enjoy. Because it starts to get
milder in spring, this is a time you can get those windows and doors open to help air your
home (especially if you are using products with bleach and ammonia which should                                always be in a ventilated area) and dry up things faster – plus the fresh air (when not freezing) is
beneficial to everyone in the home.
