How to Ready Your Home for the Spring

Ready Your Home for the Arizona Spring

Spring forward by getting your home ready for the season ahead.

The shift from winter to spring is an opportunity to shake off the old and welcome in the new. When it comes to our homes, the change in season is the perfect time to freshen things up. Ready your home for the warm weather in Arizona with these tips!

Swap out your throw pillows. Show off the colors of spring with new covers for your throw pillows. Banish the blues and welcome in bright floral prints or bold citrusy hues to give your sofa a happy, new look.

Add a splash of green. Go green with accessories and bring in fresh greenery like palm fronds and houseplants. If you have pets, be sure that you don’t bring in a poisonous plant that could harm your furry friend.

Take rugs to the cleaners. After the festive season, your area rugs are probably looking worse for wear from all the hosting. Give these rugs a new lease of life by taking them to the cleaners. While the floor is bare, take the opportunity to scrub and wash the floors thoroughly.

Clean out the cupboards. Head into the kitchen where you’ll find expired food and useless leftovers. Turn to this spring cleaning project to re-organize your cupboards, toss expired foods, and donate plastic containers and non-perishable items to charities.

Deep clean the house. Go through the house, room by room, and eliminate clutter, clean from top to bottom, and leave your home sparkling for spring!

Change the batteries in the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. The rest of the country may use the time change as a reminder to replace batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Here in Arizona, the change in seasons is a good way to remember this important household duty.

Part of keeping your home safe and ready is spring cleaning and regular maintenance. The rest falls upon securing reliable homeowners insurance. Take the spring as an opportunity to review your home coverage. Work with a team that works hard to protect you.
