Floor and area rugs:
Rugs are a great way to avoid permanent stains in high traffic areas of your home and potentially save on carpet cleaning costs once you are moved. Consider laying down rugs near entry ways, stairs, and hallways.
If you intend to move, a written 30-day notice will be required if you are in a lease term currently or have entered into a month-to-month agreement.
Spring is a great time to deep clean those windows, blinds, and other surfaces. It also creates a more comfortable environment for your livability. Natural remedies abound using items like baking soda and vinegar as well. Clean regularly and thoroughly. A lack of cleaning fixtures, toilets, flooring, etc, can erode finishes and cause materials to break down quicker. Additionally, it can keep those living in your property healthier by reducing allergens (i.e. dust, mildew).
If you are responsible for yard maintenance at your property, rake leaves, trim hedges, and fertilize your lawn to maintain the appearance and health of your yard.
Vent and Hose Bibb Covers:
Once cooler temperatures hit, it is important to cover crawlspace vents and exterior hose bibbs. This will prevent cold air from circulating under floors and plumbing from freezing.
