In spring, I move.” If you’re like me, every spring you want to fling open the windows and roll up your sleeves so that your home looks its best. Here are 3 home improvement tips for spring in San Antonio to get your home looking like new. 1. Do A Spring Checkup For Energy Efficiency And Safety Spring is one of the best times to make sure all of your home’s systems are ready for the coming summer months. Here are some things you should inspect every spring in San Antonio: HVAC System. Run your air conditioning system to ensure that it’s ready for the coming summer heat. Increase your HVAC system’s energy efficiency by replacing your air conditioning and furnace filters. Many HVAC companies offer this service for a small fee. Smoke Detectors. Test your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to keep your family safe. Replace the batteries in your alarms every spring and fall. Caulking and Windows. Check the caulking around windows, doors, and kitchen and bathroom fixtures for leaks or cracks. Repair the caulking as you go. Install window treatments, including plantation shutters, to improve your window’s energy efficiency and temperature control. Open your windows to check that they can easily move. 2. Deep Clean Your House So That It Shines The best way to make your house sparkle is with a deep clean. First, declutter each room to open up the space. Then clean anything you don’t scrub every week including ceiling fans, floors, baseboards, and kitchen and bathrooms walls. Wipe your fixtures until they shine. Vacuum your furniture, and clean under and behind it as well. Let in more light by cleaning your windows. Wash your screens and windows to get rid of smudges and dirt. Wipe down your shutters, and clean your shades and draperies. You can give your window blinds a lift with an ultrasonic cleaning treatment. 3.
