Cleaning, organizing your storage space, gardening or just disinfecting your home’s frequently touched surfaces — the time is right.
Sanitize Frequently Touched Areas
You should regularly sanitize frequently touched areas, such as doorknobs, light switches, countertops, sinks and faucets, remote controls, and handles and knobs throughout the house.
Do a Deep Clean
Empty your kitchen cupboards and wipe them down. Clean out your refrigerator and oven. Wash your walls. Dust everything from the ceiling to the floor, including ceiling fan blades, window and door frames, and blinds. Scrub your bathroom top to bottom.
Spruce Up Your Gutters
You should be cleaning your gutters at least once a year. Grab a ladder, a pair of gloves and a tarp to catch the debris as you throw it to the ground. While you’re up there, you can check your roof shingles for signs of wear.
Organize Your Storage
Now is the perfect time to clean out, arrange and organize your home’s storage areas, such as closet, attic, basement and garage. While you’re in there, you might find some items to freshen up your decor.
Switch Up Your Decor
Drag some old paintings, decorative objects or furniture pieces out of your attic or garage or swap decorative items from one room to the next. Swap out your throw pillows and blankets for new ones.
Work on Your Garden
You can order seeds and plants to start a vegetable garden or add color and texture to your flower beds. Grow in containers on your porch, patio or balcony if you don’t have a backyard.
