It’s officially Spring! This means that many of us in Morgantown, West Virginia and surrounding areas are looking to de-clutter, put away our winter clothes and take time to do a little spring cleaning.
But did you know there are even more important tasks to consider when starting the season off fresh? In order to avoid potential water damage, fire damage or mold damage, here are four more projects to add to your Spring cleaning to-do list:
1. Clean Out Your Gutters
While you may not know it, wintertime can wreak havoc on the exterior of your home. Build-up in the form of leaves, twigs and other debris can lead to water damage, which is a much worse problem to deal with than clogged gutters. So as the temperatures are warming and Spring showers inevitably appear, be proactive and clean the gutters with either a rain gutter scoop or your hands—and make sure to wear gloves to avoid cuts.
2. Air Duct Cleaning
While it’s easy to go months, or even years, without thinking about this service, it’s important to consider in order to avoid the build-up of dirt, dust and mold in your air ducts. If you or someone in your household suffers from severe allergies or any type of respiratory ailments, annual air duct cleanings are vital to maintain the air quality of your home.
3. Deep Carpet Cleaning
No, we’re not just talking about regular sweeping and vacuuming. While those chores are important in the weekly maintenance of your home, a deep carpet cleaning includes a professional cleaning with special tools created to reach the dirt and bacteria hidden from the human eye. Crossroads Property Rescue has the tools necessary to provide a thorough deep carpet cleaning.
4. Clean Clothes Dryer Vents and Ducts
Be sure to check the hose attached to your clothes dryer once a year—minimum. Clogged clothes dryer vents are the cause of catastrophic fire damage each year. Blockages of lint and dirt can easily lead to house fires, so be sure to properly unclog your dryer vents and ducts.
With these tips, you’ll be able to keep your home safe and clean just in time to enjoy the Spring season. Be sure to contact Crossroads Property Rescue for any of your fire damage, mold damage, or water damage needs.
