Spring is just around the corner and that means your home will need a little tender loving care. There are many areas of the home that need attention before summer. Here is a list of our top 10 items to add to your Spring home checklist:
- Clean Gutters
Grab a ladder, and check your gutters for debris. Remove as much as you can with your hands then remove any leftover gunk with a garden hose.
- Replace Filters
Replace all filters including water, range hood, and air vent filters. You should replace these filters every 3-6 months depending on the type of filter you have. Filters that are only 1” thick may need to replaced every month. Wider filters with higher MERV efficiencies or .11+ may last up to 12 months in some Edmonton households.
- Clean Faucets and shower heads
Unscrew the faucet aerators, sink sprayers and showerheads, and soak them in equal parts vinegar and water solution. Let them soak for an hour, then rinse with warm water.
- Clean out the dryer vent
A clogged dryer vent can be a fire hazard. To clean it, disconnect the vent from the back of the machine and use a dryer vent brush to remove lint. Outside your house, remove the dryer vent cover and use the brush to remove lint from the other end of the vent line. Make sure the vent cover flap moves freely.
- Wash Exterior Windows
After a long winter, our windows will become quite dirty, washing them once the snow melts will reduce the amount of dust and allergens entering your home as well.
- Keep Allergens away

- Test Smoke Alarms
Test smoke alarms and CO detectors, and change out batteries as needed. It’s cheap, only takes a few minutes and can save your family’s lives
- Clean Outdoor Furniture
Outdoor entertaining season is just around the corner.
- Inspect your air conditioning unit.
Having your air conditioning unit inspected by a certified professional before turning it on for the season is not only a good safety measure, but could also help prolong the life of the unit. AC systems require “cleaning service” outdoors and indoors on the equipment so they run efficiently, quietly and don’t stress or burn out the components.
