Spring Cleaning Checklist

Spring is finally here after a long winter!

However, before you open the windows to let in the fresh air, make sure they're clean.

We're talking about spring cleaning, of course!

Don't worry, we've put together a spring cleaning checklist to help you:

It's essential to set aside a time each year to deep clean your property to keep it in good condition, neat and pleasant to live in. Spring cleaning allows you to get rid of dust, mold and some memories from the past that you don't necessarily want to remember.

Are you ready to get started?
