It's a good idea to start from the top and work your way down. Check your roof and see if there are any shingles that were damaged or lost during the winter season. See if there are any shingles that have cracked, buckled, been pried loose or are missing granules and have them replaced. Flashing around chimneys, skylights, and vents should also be checked. But make sure this is done by an experienced roof specialist.
Declutter to Make More Space
Clutter can burden you physically and mentally. There's no better time to get rid of clutter than spring. However, some people find decluttering scary and overwhelming. The best strategy here is to do it step-by-step. Start by cleaning out one drawer, cabinet or room before moving to a new one.
Spring is also the best time to clear your closet. Sort through your clothes and take out all those that you won't be wearing anytime soon (like your thick winter clothes), those that are old or you haven't worn in the past six months. Group them into piles – one for donating, throwing, packing, and remaining.
Peel Off Heavy Layers
There's no need for warm and thick blankets, throws, and rugs now that the weather is becoming warmer. Stripping off these heavy layers can feel liberating and give your home a fresh and airy look. Wash or dry-clean blankets before packing them and have carpets cleaned professionally before storage.
Store Unneeded Items
Think about your storage situation as you spring clean. Consider boxing up seasonal accessories or putting furnishings that you won't use anymore in storage. There are also lots of creative storage solutions you can utilize while improving how your home looks. For instance, place hanging shelves or stylish shelves on a blank wall to hold books, photos, and other knick-knacks.
