Time to start getting ready for spring cleaning. Here are just a few tips to start you off:

1. Check for loose or leaking gutters and clean debris from them so rain water runs freely.

2. Make sure downspouts drain away from the foundation of your house.

3. Any low areas in your yard or next to the foundation should be filled with compacted soil. Spring rains can cause yard flooding, which can lead to foundation flooding and damage. Also standing water in these areas cause a breeding ground for insects.

Are you tired of the appearance of your old appliances but can't afford to replace them? While a leopard can't change its spots, you can change the color of your appliances. Thoroughly clean them, then buff with 000 steel wool. Rinse and clean them again. When absolutely dry you can paint them with an epoxy-enamel tub/tile and appliance paint. There are videos on youtube that show how to DIY.

Do you have cold Feet? If your house, or a portion of it is built on a slab, the Homasote Company has a product called “Comfort Base”, which is applied directly on the slab and then you can carpet or install flooring on top of it. It will help keep the floors warmer. You can find out more about this product from their website
