In spring, I move.” If you’re like me, springtime inspires you to fling open the windows and scrub everything down to get your home in tip-top shape. Here are 3 home improvement tips for spring in Salt Lake City to give your home a fresh start. 1. Go Through A Spring Checkup For Energy Efficiency And Safety Spring is the perfect time to make sure your home’s systems are ready for the coming summer months. Here’s a list of some of the things you should inspect every spring in Salt Lake City: HVAC System. Run your air conditioning system to ensure that it’s ready for the coming summer heat. Improve your HVAC system’s energy efficiency by replacing your furnace and air conditioning filters. Many HVAC companies will do this service for a small cost. Smoke Detectors. Test your carbon monoxide and smoke alarms to keep your family and home safe. Put new batteries in your alarms in the spring and in the fall. Caulking and Windows. Check the caulking around doors and windows as well as kitchen and bathroom fixtures for holes or cracks. Replace the caulking if needed. Install window treatments, like plantation shutters, to increase the energy efficiency of your windows. Open up all your windows to make sure that they can move freely. 2. Tackle The Dirt To See Your House Shine If you want to see your house really sparkle, give it a deep clean. First, declutter each room to open up the space. After that, clean surfaces you don’t clean weekly.These areas include floors, kitchen and bathroom walls, baseboards, and ceiling fans. Shine up your kitchen and bathroom fixtures. Vacuum your furniture and the area under and behind it as well. Bring in more natural light by cleaning your windows. Wipe down your screens and windows to get rid of smudges and dirt. Clean your window treatments including shutters, draperies, and shades. You can clean your blinds with an ultrasonic cleaning treatment. 3.
