How to Give the Outside of Your Home a Spring Cleaning
The Best Way to Clean Windows, Gutters, & More
As the weather warms up and you begin spring cleaning the inside of your home, don’t forget the part people see most—the outside! Below are some of our recommendations for spring cleaning: the best way to clean windows, washing your front door, cleaning out gutters, and more.
Want to know the best way to clean windows? Let the window experts help you. One of the most common and damaging issues for your windows is a buildup of mineral deposits on the glass, called hard water stains. These are often caused by irrigation water that reaches the windows. If regular, professional cleanings are neglected, these hard water stains can permanently damage the glass.
This is why we always highly recommend letting our team come out and clean your windows while you handle other outdoor projects. Hiring the Labor Panes team is truly the best way to clean windows in the spring.
One of the first things people notice when they walk up to your home is your front door and door mat. Before you give your door a cleaning, we recommend searching the best method to clean your door based on the material before you apply any chemicals. For wood doors, it may even be a great time to add a fresh coat of paint afterward. Shake your door mat off and rinse it down with your hose. Still dirty? It may be time to invest in a new one.
Now that the leaves are beginning to reappear on trees, it’s a great time of year to schedule an appointment with Labor Panes to inspect or begin cleaning out gutters. Maintaining your gutters helps keep them clean and in working order. We hand scoop the leaves, bag them, and haul them away. Then, your downspouts are checked and unclogged to ensure proper drainage. We suggest having your gutters cleaned out twice a year to prevent damage.
Lastly, one of the best ways to clean your home for spring is clearing away any dead flowers and plants from winter and replacing them with fresh flowers. It doesn’t take much to make a difference! Simply place two large pots on either side of your door or on the steps of your porch. This is one of the easiest ways to freshen up the outside of your home for warmer weather.
With these four tips, you’ll enjoy walking up to your bright and clean home. Seasonal maintenance such as cleaning out gutters will prevent damage that could ensue from falling leaves. And once you see why the Labor Panes team is the best way to clean windows, you’ll never miss a cleaning.
