Is your home ready for the lucky month? Here is the task to get done so your house is ready to welcome in Spring during the month of March:
It's Daylight Savings Time! Honor the occasion by not only changing the time on appliances and clocks on March 13th but by also replacing batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Celebrate that Spring is on its way by cleaning! Start with decluttering and getting rid of unwanted or unnecessary items; you can have a yard sale or just simply donate.
Clean your refrigerator: empty it out, throw away the old and expired foods, scrub the shelves and drawers. Avoid cleaning your fridge with harmful chemicals by using this mixture: 1 ½ cups water, 1 cup white vinegar, 20 drops lemon essential oil, 10 drops lavender essential oil; Combine all these ingredients into a spray bottle. Use to clean the surfaces in your home.
After all the snow and rain we have had, inspect your basement walls for signs of moisture. Running a portable dehumidifier should do the trick, or call a waterproofing contractor.
Test the pressure and temperature on your water heater by opening it and allowing water to flow out. If a little or no water flows out, or if it does not shut off properly, replace it!
For a little March decorating tip: Green is the new black this month! Add a hint of green, especially the color mint or seafoam, in your home. This can simply be done by adding throw pillows, center rug, or even DIY painted mason jars.
